Representing New Zealand's Dancesport Community

Athletes Licence

As part of our development as the WDSF national member federation for New Zealand we are pleased to announce that we have implemented a DanceSport New Zealand Athlete Licence. All athletes holding this licence are sanctioned to dance in WDSF championships for New Zealand, and within all other jurisdictions requiring approval from DanceSport NZ. From 1 July 2010 this licence will be required for all couples competing in Dancesport Australia events and overseas.
If you would like to apply for a licence, please either contact your local regional Dancesport NZ body or contact the Sports Officer.
The application form is available to download here: Athlete's Licence Application Form
The Fee Schedule is available to download here: Fee Schedule

All athletes licensed with Dancesport New Zealand must abide by the anti-doping regulations of World Dancesport Federation (WDSF) as well as DrugFreeNZ. Details of the rules can be found at the Drugfree Sport New Zealand website. There is also a fantastic site of anti-doping information and resources for athletes here.
