The IDTA Midlands Area (Ballroom) promotes dance in the Midlands on behalf of the INTERNATIONAL DANCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
The IDTA has over 7,000 teachers in the U.K. and 17 area committees offering, area meetings, seminars, workshops and competitions for their local IDTA Members and Medalists
The Midlands area run IDTA Nationwide Medalist of the Year Competition heats in Ballroom, Latin, Modern Sequence, Classical Sequence, Street Dance, Freestyle, Rock 'n' Roll, in addition to area Lecture days and Workshops for our Members.
With deepest regret the Midlands Area Committee has to announce that Miss Beryl Bates (Tonks) passed away on 11th September
Beryl has been a life long supporter of the IDTA and especially the Midlands area serving on the committee for over 40 years and our Nationwide Representative for decades.
Beryl's dancing career stems back many years, a British Champion, dancing on board the Camberra in the days of live Big Bands, radio presenting of dancing programmes, promoting competitions for the IDTA, training many Champions as well as many more professionals over the years.
We may remember her examining our children, or just being that welcoming face at the Midlands area meetings and competitions, this kind hearted lady will be sadly missed and we would like to extend our condolences to her husband Mr Derek Tonks.
