About the International DanceSport Federation (IDSF)

Founded in 1957, the International DanceSport Federation (IDSF) is the governing body for DanceSport for the whole world. It is the international umbrella organization of which CADA and 83 other national DanceSport organizations are members. Representing over 9,000,000 competitive International-Style DanceSport athletes and allied athletes worldwide, IDSF is the organization which has the exclusive right to grant the principal continental, international and world amateur DanceSport championships. Its headquarters are located in Lausanne, Switzerland.  

In 1997 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) granted IDSF exclusive "Full Recognition" as the world governing body for DanceSport. In a 2002 reorganization, the IOC place IDSF DanceSport on a "short list" of ten sports next in line for admission to the Medal Programme, that is, participation in the Summer Olympic Games.

IDSF's 12 Officers and Directors, called the Presidium, are elected every three years. Current Presidium Members are from Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland. IDSF’s current President is Mr. Rudolf Baumann of Zurich, Switzerland; its Past President is Mr. Peter Pover of Florida, USA. Both these gentlemen have visited Canada during the past seven years to attend IDSF "World Ranking Tournament" DanceSport competitions held in this country.

In 1998, CADA President Jim Fraser, of Vancouver, B.C., became the first Canadian to be elected to the IDSF Presidium. He was re-elected in 2001, and re-elected again on June 20, 2004 for a third 3-year term. A practising lawyer in British Columbia, and an official of the Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Olympic Committee, Mr. Fraser serves as IDSF Legal Commissioner, IDSF World Anti-Doping Representative, Chair of the IDSF Statutes Revision Commission, and Chair of the IDSF Festivals Commission. He voluntarily retired as CADA President in March, 2005 after 8 years in that office.

IDSF's most recent Annual General Meeting was held in Prague, Czech Republic, on June 12, 2005, and was attended by a full delegation of two CADA representatives.
