We are back to the Jackson’s Hotel in Ireland for European Dance Masters.

The Jackson’s Hotel, Donegal, is our choice for the European Dance Masters 2017, Friday 23 - Sunday 25 March 2018.

This event is guaranteed to be packed with great competition, workshops, social dancing and shows, plus an incredible atmosphere that is sure to be great 'craic'.

Come and meet up with friends old and new, the World Dance Masters team, and experience a little bit of Ireland! We promise this will be a party you don't want to miss!
Starter, Tiny Tots, and Rugrats competitors can dance at this event without needing to qualify.
All UK and Ireland Competitors need to have danced at
one regional qualifier before the event.
Competitors from all other countries may compete here without qualification.

If you are interested in making a group booking for Event Tickets or Competitor Registration see this page.

The right sidebar details information on how to buy tickets, accommodation, and the schedule. If you have more questions on the event please use the contact us link at the top of the page.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at a cheaper rate. A full weekend ticket gets access for Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday. All competitors, except those in Starter, Rugrats, and TinyTots divisions only, must have a full weekend ticket.

Dancer Incentive Program
If you are dancing in Starter, Rugrats, and Tiny Tots only,
your Competitor Registration free will give you entry to the event. These divisions for Solo will take place on Sunday, so if you want to arrive just on Sunday you can. When you arrive at the event say your name at the door and you will get free entry. Guests looking to attend to watch the Sunday Finals must pay Day Entry rates. If you are dancing in Starter Pro-Am and Starter/Rugrats/Tiny Tots Solo, you will receive entry on Saturday, too. Note, if you dance in a division outside of Starter for Solo and do Starter Pro-Am, you must have a full weekend pass, and vis-a-versa. Free entry is only open to those just doing the new dancer divisions.

All tickets are subject to a small service fee, which can be found when clicking through to the Ticket Page.

The Jackson’s Hotel is a wonderfully quaint hotel and leisure complex in Ballybofey, Donegal. The hotel has a fabulous function room with a large built-in dance floor, which is where we’ll be holding our competition!

This year we have more rooms in the hotel, but reserve your room early to avoid disappointment as it will sell out. If the hotel sells out, the Jackson’s Hotel owns a sister hotel just across the road! Please continue to call the Jackson’s Hotel :)
