Help – i’m a participant
Good that you’re on this page! Here, you will find all the basic information you need to know before and during the weekend. We assume you have some experience with participating in ETDS’s (or NTDS’s).
If you can’t find the answer to your question on the website, please look at the FAQ page first. If your question still isn’t answered, please contact your team captain. If they don’t know the answer either they can email us directly and they will get back to you. This way, you can help prevent that we drown in emails. If you don’t have a team captain, you can contact us directly with your question at:

What are the main differences with previous ETDS’s?
We mention some relevant differences with the previous ETDS (in Delft).
We have chosen for a different division of classes. Instead of beginners, breitensport and clopen, we only have breitensport and open. All dancers (including beginners and dancers that usually dance closed) should dance in breitensport class, except for a smaller experienced group, who dances open class.
After the qualification round of breitensport class, dancers are divided into one of six subclasses: enthusiasts, amateurs, professionals, masters, champions, or legends. At the ETDS in Delft, there were only four breitensport classes, namely amateurs, professionals, masters, and champions.
Unfortunately, parking next to the venue is not free. We advise all dancers to use public transport as much as possible.
