IDO Germany is this week’s IDO National Member of the Week (NMO). The project is a marketing initiative led by the IDO Communications Department.

TAF Germany was founded over 40 years in 1978 and competitions predominant in those years and decade was Disco Dance. TAF became a member of IDO in 1982 and in the mid 90’s Michael Wendt took over the chair, and opened TAF to each dancer in Germany. Since 2011, Ralf Josat is the President and since 2012 TAF is an independent Organization in their country.

Ralf Josat explains that one of his most memorable moments was back in 1993 when he attended an IDO World Championship in Switzerland, were he met Michael Wendt from Germany and Gloria Fish from South Africa. Thanks to Michael and Gloria he was introduced to IDO and since then has always been a part of IDO, as supervisor, chairman, and master of ceremonies at many competitions, amongst others.

Anniversary message: We have loved IDO for 40 years and we look forward to love IDO for the next 40 years!
