About IDO

The main purpose of the International Dance Organization (IDO) is to provide Continental and World Championship competitions to both amateur and professional dancers, in all forms of dance, not covered by the World Dance & DanceSport Council, the International DanceSport Federation and the World Rock 'n Roll Confederation.

Today, the IDO is deeply involved with many aspects of our dance industry. It is constantly striving to improve the quality of its dancers, through participation, its adjudicators through education, and national member images by being involved with the largest dance organization in the world. The various disciplines, through their committees, are convened on a regular basis to ensure that the IDO rules are always current and up to date with its membership wishes.
