NEWSLETTER 2008 
To all those interested in dancing,
This has been an amazing year for AIDA.  We have successfully organised competitions and seminars across the country including two major world events - both two day events one in the centre and one in the north with a large panel of international judges and dancers from many countries together with our own top dancers.  Many of our dancers have represented Israel overseas and received recognition and many of our judges have qualified for international licences.  In short, our standards have risen and we are now firmly a part of the international scene.
 
I would like to thank all the people who have been a part of this success - teachers, dancers, parents, fans and supporters; those who work so hard to help improve our level of dancing and the standard of our dancers and those who work so hard organising all our events. 
 
I would like to thank in particular Genya Levant for volunteering all her hard work for so many years as our general secretary and to thank Ilan Vaiman our president for working with all of us and helping to promote us internationally.
 
I wish all of us a healthy, happy, prospersous and peaceful New Year.
 
Keep happy and keep dancing,
Patrice Perez,
Sports Director,
AIDA.

OUR AIM is to help unite all the teachers, dancers and parents into one strong body which functions democratically and legally for the benefit of all, to forward the sport within Israel and to be recognised by the international dance community. 
Our dancers take part in the prestigous TV programme Dancing with the Stars and this year 2008 Kiryll Sivolapov took first place.
 
Our first International Competition was held in Arad details below.  Since then we have arranged and organised International and World Competitions and this year we are holding a professional and an amateur World Championship in Israel.

DANCESPORT IN ISRAEL
 
EUROPEAN BALLROOM and LATIN AMERICAN  DANCING together are called DANCESPORT.  This form of dancing has recently been  recognised by the Olympics and is fast spreading throughout Europe, America, the Far East and of course here in Israel.
 
Competitions are held at all different levels depending on age and standard being danced.   Couples who reach ten dance level compete in championships both national and international and take part in prestigous competitions such as BLACKPOOL in England and the Dutch Open in Holland which are two of the largest competitions in Europe.  Some of our top couples will be participating in these competitions in 2007 and 2008.
 
If you are interested in learning how to dance whether you are a beginner or advanced please contact us and we will put you in touch with your nearest dance school.  Lessons can be arranged to suit your requirements.
BALLROOM AND LATIN DANCING consists of ten different dances - five in Ballroom and five in Latin. 
The Ballroom dances are Waltz, Tango, Slowfox, Vienese Waltz and Quickstep.  The Latin dances are Cha-Cha, Samba, Rumba, Pasodoble and Jive. 
Beginners start with one Latin and one Ballroom dance and gradually add one of each working their way up to ten dance which is the highest level.
 
SOCIAL AND COMPETITIVE DANCING.  There are  two approaches to dancing - one is social dancing and one is competitive dancing.  Social dancing is extremely popular with adults around the world.  Competitive dancing is an extremely demanding, athletic and artistic form of dance leading up to world championship competitions.
 
In the photograph below you can see one of AIDA's top dancers who won in this year's TV programme DANCING WITH THE STARS.
Some of our dancers start at the age of four -
