NEWS FLASH: Change of events for the 2016 North American & USA Championships
The 4th North America Outgames to be held in St. Louis from May 28th through June 4th, 2016, with the Dancesport Event to be held on June 2nd and June 3rd, has been cancelled. No statement has been made as to the reasons for this cancellation. NASSPDA had awarded the Dancesport event at the 2016 North America Outgames with hosting the NASSPDA’s North American Championships, which also meant that NASSPDA would have its Annual Membership Meeting in conjunction with this event, in accordance to NASSPDA’s By-Laws. The Board immediately considered its other options and decided to award the “Glitz & Glitter Ball,” held in Columbus, OH, on July 23rd, 2016, the North American Championships, which had also been awarded to host NASSPDA’s USA Championships, handing those championships now over to “April Follies,” held in Oakland, CA, on April 23rd, 2016.
