In addition Mr. Nils-Hakan Carlzon  is co-opted by the Board of Directors to the DTEB with a special remit to be in charge of the formation and running of an Artistic Dance Department (ADD). This is a great benefit for us and can really develop into a great offer to our members. It will include solo dancing, syncro dancing, but even more!

Euro Dance Centers can be found in almost all the European countries belonging to the European Union. With the addition of new countries and more to follow this will cover virtually all of the European Members of the WDC
Ltd. Some countries outside the EU are also using this concept. Each of these Dance Schools displays the WDC Ltd Euro or World Dance Center Logo. These logos define to
the General Public that the School is affiliated to the WDC Ltd.
Dance Centers.

Dance Schools and Teachers
The actual number of Dance Schools worldwide, providing instruction on dance on a weekly basis is unknown. The different styles of Dance taught in these Dance Schools varies from region to region and continent to continent. The
WDC Ltd Dance Teachers Executive Board is attempting to create the world's most comprehensive Directory of Dance Schools and Dance Teachers. Therefore we ask our members to register Dance Teachers and Dance Schools with us to show the world that we are a big and truly the main Professional World Dance Council.
