The ETDS (European Tournament for Dancing Students)
is a 'Breitensport' tournament in ballroom and latin dances taking place twice a year. Dancers from many European universities compete for the popular challenge cup 'Der Maus'.
Students, employees of the university and fans of competitive dancing meet at
different venues and pursue their common passion: dancing! All levels, beginners
to experienced dancers, get together at this tournament.
To include all different levels of dancing, the tournament is
divided into a 'Breitensport' and 'Open' category.
At the beginning of the tournament dancers of the
'Breitensport' pass through a qualification round to be split
up into three classes: amateurs, professionals and masters.
Each of these classes carries out its own independent
tournament concluding in a final round with open scoring.
The tournament of the 'Open' addresses to dancers who hold or have
ever held a starting permission and those attending tournament
After having achieved places 1-3 in the masters class (latin or ballroom)
in two out of three successive ETDS-tournaments, a participant is excluded
from the 'Breitensport' tournament in the corresponding section and may only
start in the 'Open' category. Blind dating is obligatory for all 'Open' dancers.
Alongside the sportive competition, the main thing is to have fun and to
enjoy the weekend.
