ACDA COVID-19 Announcement
It is with much regret that the American Country Dance Association (ACDA) has to announce the cancellation of their 2020 National Championships which was scheduled for November 20-22. Our first and foremost concern is for the health and wellbeing of our ACDA Dance Family.
Because of the Covid-19 situation in Texas and its surrounding states, we will be unable to move forward with this Grand Finale. The existing State of Texas mandates and requirements have made this an impossible situation.
In recent conversations with the Westin Hotel, they understand our concern for the health and safety of our dancers and attendees and agree that this cancellation is best for all involved.
We are very sorry that we have to cancel our ACDA National Championships for this year, but want you to know that we have already booked our 2021 date. See you next year at the ACDA National Championships - November 19-21, 2021.
WE WILL DANCE AGAIN ONE DAY!!

we guarantee that we will put the FUN in country dancing!
Once again, we will be offering a weekend full of hot country
