AN IDO YEAR IN REVIEW! Part 3- Press Release 153/2020
The International Dance Organization’s year in 2020 summer season saw a quieter of months. Here are some highlights of IDO’s 2020 between July and September 2020:
The IDO Presidium meetings continued online via Zoom. Finances, Annual General Meetings and Competitions for 2020 and 2021 formed part of the agenda. It was confirmed that the AGM’s and ADM’s would be conducted online in December 2020.
IDO seminars and exams continued as did one of the very few events in our competition calendar for 2020, the IDO Grand Prix in Katrineholm, Sweden. Over 500 dancers took part during the four-day closed door event.
The IDO celebrated two major dance events. The IDO’s birthday was celebrated on the 18th September, with national members performing to the song ‘Rise Up’ by Andra Day – Jesse Bloch Remix Song. We are very grateful to Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Romania, Switzerland, Slovenia and Turkey for supporting the project.
Secondly, World Peace Day. Although we were unable to organise it in the usual manner, a special video from the 2019 event was featured. It was produced by our Czech friends from Danceshock, TS FREEDOM - Silvie Netikova. This special video clearly shows what IDO is, an organisation where friendship and love for dance is above everything else. All videos can be viewed on IDO YouTube.
We look forward tomorrow to Part 4 of our IDO Year in Review!
