THE INTERNATIONAL SEQUENCE DANCE CIRCLE

Welcome to ISDC

Welcome to the website of The International Sequence Dance Circle (ISDC).

ISDC was formed in 1944 by a man with great vision and an even greater dream. That man was F.J.Mainey -  and the rest, as they say, is history....

 

 

 

 

Photographs from the 2018 ISDC Dance Festival and images from previous years can now be viewed by clicking on the 'Photo Gallery' section on the right hand side of this page and also by clicking on 'History'. We hope that you enjoy looking back over the past ISDC Festivals and many thanks to all who contributed.

The Directors of the ISDC Dance Festival, Audrey Singleton & Jill Whitter, would like to say a very big Thank You to Jan Kendall, all the management & all the wonderful staff in every department at The Spa, Bridlington & also to William Hall at the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (E.Y. Events) for helping to make the ISDC Dance Festival a resounding success. The professionalism, courtesy & attention to detail simply cannot be bettered. We have been looked after so well by everyone at the Spa over the last 25 years and although we are very sad to be leaving, we feel sure that the memories & the music will always linger on around that magnificent ballroom.

 

 

A very special surprise for Audrey Singleton -Director of the ISDC Dance Festival, which was superbly (& secretly) organised by Avril Watkins - the beautiful and very thoughtful gifts will be treasured forever. Thank you so much to Neil, Lesley, Avril & Graham & everyone who took the time to partake, write such touching messages, provide wonderful photographs, all presented in a splendid album. Along with a stunning engraved crystal glass bowl & wine glasses & a beautiful canvas portrait of Audrey and her husband Stuart (former Director of ISDC). Audrey was completely overwhelmed by it all & thanks everyone with all her heart.

 

 

Following a very succssful & emotional final 2018 ISDC Dance Festival at The Spa, Bridlington, Audrey & I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge & heartfelt thank you to everyone who came along to support us.

We hope we delivered an event that will leave you with many happy memories.

 

As always, we are so fortunate to have had our our truly wonderful ‘team’ helping us along every step of the way and our sincere gratitude goes out to -

The two best musicians providing the very best music any dancer could ever wish to dance to, David Last & Larry Green.

Our superb & irreplaceable evening hosts, Neil & Lesley Marshall and Michael Hayton & Angela Hayton.

Many thanks to our Festival Stewards, Derek & Pam Cragg and John & Brenda Deacon.

A very special mention to Kim Green for all her support & hard work at Festival reception. Thank you to all the Competitors in this year’s Inventive Dance Competition and many congratulations to our 2018 winners: Kelly Sloan, Ellen Harrison, Stuart Perry & Beverly Howard, who have now taken our ISDC Trophies to their forever homes and given us three wonderful and very popular new dances.

Many thanks to the Adjudicators, (NVC Roy Sharpe), Elaine Sharpe, Alwyn Leathley, Muriel Aldren, Arthur Parr & Graham Thomson. When we asked the adjudicators to ‘take a break’ we didn’t expect Muriel to do so quite so literally! - we send our very best wishes for a speedy recovery Muriel, & thank you to Pam Cragg for stepping in for the remainder of the competition.

Thank you to our Scrutineers & Script consultants, Martin & Sarah Bird, & to Neil Marshall for the CD music.

Thank you also to all our excellent guest daytime hosts, John & Ann Rainey, David & Rita Harrod, David Howker & Deborah Catlow & Ian & Sue Webster.
A very special mention must go to Warren Boyce, Kristi Boyce, Glenn-Richard Boyce & Cäroly Jänes for the truly fabulous show they gave for us once again and also to Collette Tyler & all her exceptionally talented young Dance School students for a super performance.
So, our work here is done. Thank you to everyone involved, not forgetting of course our family, Matthew Whitter, Elissia Whitter & David Whitter - we wish each & everyone of you all the very best for the future & hope that we will meet again someday, somewhere.
