On Sunday October 24, 2006 a group of about 30 dancers, teachers, judges and competition organisers involved in same-sex dancing from 9 different European countries had an informal meeting in Budapest. The meeting was the third following earlier meetings in Cologne and Montreal. They spoke about the desire to form a network or organisation for European and non-European same-sex dancers. After a long discussion it was decided to found an organisation for European same-sex dancers, with an open mind to include non-European dancers.
For a worldwide advocacy for same-sex dancers, there is already an organisation with which the founders of the European one wish to cooperate in the future. A founding committee has been formed with the task to formulate the basis of such an organisation. The founding will take place in London on February 18, 2007.
