ETDS stands for "European Tournament for Dancing Students" and describes tournamens which take place twice a year (at whitsun and in autumn). About 450 participiants come together and compete in latin and ballroom dancing in three breitensport classes and the "open" class for former breitensport members.

The whole event starts on Friday evening with a blind date party (if you want to dance with someone else than your usual partner) and ends on Monday morning with the breakfast. During the event, there are the tournaments, a theme party and a ball with the award ceremony. Usually the participiants sleep in a sports hall. [more...]
