    - Ritmo Senior Open?.. , , - . :( Kulno Kabral , :
    Dear Senior dancers from all around the world,

    We are very pleased to have made so many friends from so many different countries, with whom we meet in Tallinn every April for the traditional Ritmo dance competition. We have truly enjoyed organising the Ritmo competitions and will remember each one very fondly. We especially appreciate the enthusiasm and joy with which you, dear dancers, have arrived in Tallinn to participate in the competition.
    We have had the pleasure of organising the Ritmo dance competition for 22 years, so we sincerely regret having to announce that the competition will not be taking place in 2019. This is due to the complicated current situation in the Estonian Dance Sport Association.
    We hope to meet you all at another time!

    Dear dancers!Mystifying things are happening here in Estonia.

    During the EDSA general meeting on the 1st October 2019 the Dance Club Ritmo was expelled EDSA. The reason for the expulsion was erring against good practice.
    Dance club Ritmo has been a member of EDSA for 23 years, during its membership actively promoting senior dance as well as organising the Ritmo Open dance competition for 22 years. 186 senior dance couples from 16 different countries participated in the last competition in 2018.
    I was accused of being too critical for the current board's policy of senior dance and for expressing my views too emotionally. Prior to the expulsion, I was deprived (at the request of the EDSA's board) from honorary membership of the Estonian Senior Sports and Sports Veterans Association. After having repeatedly asked for an explanation and expressing my dissatisfaction for not receiving a clear answer, I was advised that this was also due to going against good practice.
    The motion to expel dance club Ritmo was tabled by DC Laguun (Ivo Kappet) and supported by dance clubs Leevi (Eve End), Emerald (Margit Bahtin), Dance Team Royal (Eve Aunver), Polonez (Ryszard and Maia Sondowicz), Master (Regina Velberg), Impulse Plus (Aleksandr Krasnikov), Twist (Ove and Silvia Purje) and Estonian Dance Academy (Diana Mitt).
    Unfortunately the expulsion was a natural continuation for previous decisions by the current EDSA's Board: last year dance club Tango (Veiko Ratas) and dance club Club Esperanza (Svjatoslav Jushkov) were expelled from EDSA, as both dared to express their dissatisfaction with the work of the board. However these clubs have currently been reinstated as members by court order until the court makes a final judgment about the case.
    In our last post about RitmoSeniorOpen, we expressed hope that while we were unable to organise the competition in 2019, we might still meet in Tallinn in the future. However having been expelled from the EDSA, we will unfortunately never again have the possibility to organise the RitmoSeniorOpen for senior dancers competition as part of the WDSF Open. However it is likely that it wouldn't have been possible anyway, scant comfort as that is. One can only assume that only dance clubs directly associated with members of the EDSA board may organise WDSF competitions going forward, as it is virtually impossible to comply with the strict rules for said competitions laid down by the EDSA Director in 2018. However these rules don't seem to apply to clubs owned by members of the board...
    We would like to sincerely thank all of friendly couples who have participated in previous competitions organised by dance club Ritmo! And also everyone who, while they might not have been able to participate in the competition for whatever reason, hold dance dear in their hearts and find joy in dancing. Thank you!
    We wish you all the best in the sport we love, many successes and hope you have many wonderful experiences!
    Naturally dance club Ritmo will continue to hold its enjoyable training sessions in the future as well.

    Best wishes,
    Kulno & Monika
