We organized our very own first ever DanceSport Championships (1st Come Dancing Cup) in 1993 with ourselves doing the demonstrations. Since then, we have tried our very best to promoting DanceSport in Hong Kong by organizing Come Dancing Cup and inviting top Professional Latin couples as performers Non-Stop. Corky & Shirley Ballas was the first couple that we invited at 2nd Come Dancing Cup! From 1999, we organized another championships (1st Best of Best) in Christmas time. From 2005, we took over the task of organizing our third competition (2nd ISTD Cup) in the year. Ironically, in organizing these championships over the past years, we only have had small sponsorships occasionally. More often, we might get no sponsorships at all! Unconditionally, we still keep on organizing and promoting DanceSport in Hong Kong as our missions. Unfortunately, due to disconnection of communications, ISTD Cup was discontinued in 2015. On 14th February 2011, Hong Kong Ballroom Dancers International (HKBDI) was born. I organized the inaugural championships under the name of HKBDI in February 2012 named as 1st HKBDFI Cup, which means this cup will be held every February ; In October 2012 & 2013, HKBDI was sponsored by Central & Western District Board to build the new event of Handover Cup. From 2014, the Handover Cup will be shifted to June - nearer to the date of Hong Kong Handover to China Sovereignty. No advertisement is allowed to be published at Handover Cup programme.
If any dance fans, entities, organizations, fellow professionals, friends, students would like to contribute to our missions, there is one simple, easy and productive way, i.e. put down advertisements in our Programmes for the following three events:
(23rd Come Dancing Cup) ((16h Best of Best) (4thHKBDFICup)
The dates of these events please refer to the “Coming Events”
