After monitoring the coronavirus outbreak over the last few weeks, it has become clear to us that we will need to postpone European Dance Masters 2021, which was to be held in The Jacksons Hotel, Ireland, between 26-28th March 2021.
Who would have thought this time last year, when we were watching the pandemic unfold globally and were discussing whether it would be possible to hold Europeans 2020, that we would be in the same position one year on? We had really hoped that the world would be in a better place and that Europeans 2021 could be a celebration and our first event back, but we need to continue to do our part to help keep the virus under control to protect our loved ones until there is proliferation of the vaccines and an ease in restrictions to larger events.
When is the new date for Europeans 2021?
We are moving the date of Europeans 2021 to 22-24 October where we hope to be able to celebrate with a Halloween Extravaganza! The event will be competition and social in one ballroom only.
Will it be in the same venue?
No, we will be changing venues due to availability at The Jacksons. We will announce the new venue and how to book accommodation in the venue over the next few weeks. Stay tuned to our Facebook Page for the latest details.
Will we return to The Jacksons Hotel in 2022?
Yes! In April 2022, we’ll be back in Ballybofey between 8-10 April. We’ll have two ballrooms so options for both competition and social workshops throughout the weekend.
What about your deposit for accommodation at The Jacksons for 2021?
If you had accommodation booked with The Jacksons Hotel for 2020 and rolled over into 2021, or you booked for 2021 separately, you can request a refund on your deposit. Please note, the Jacksons’ Team is working on reduced staffing so it may take them a little longer to process and requests can only be made by email.
To request a refund:
- Email Sharon on firstname.lastname@example.org
- Include in your email the name the booking was made under
- Please allow up to 7 days for them to get back to you
- Do not call. The team cannot handle cancellation requests over the phone
Any requests for refunds must be completed by 28.02.21, after this date bookings will be carried to the 2022 event, usual booking terms and conditions will apply after this date, and deposits will be non-refundable.
Want to roll your accommodation deposit to 2022?
Great! You don’t need to do anything. If you don’t request a refund, then your booking will automatically be rolled over to the event in 2022. If you’d like to confirm, you can email Sharon at email@example.com.
What about passes and registration booked for Europeans 2021. Will I be able to receive a refund?
Yes, if you booked a ticket or registered for the original date for Europeans 2021, this will be automatically refunded by World Dance Masters. You will be able to rebook tickets for the new dates when we formally announce the location.
When will accommodation bookings be open for The Jacksons for Europeans 2022?
We will announce that in due course. We will work to organise all information for 2021 in the new venue first and then proceed with announcements about accommodation booking for Europeans 2022.
Thank you so much for your understanding as we make these changes. We will make updates to the site and our Facebook Page as we launch information on the new venue and bookings for the new date. We really can’t wait to see you all in person again and want to say how much we appreciate your continued support.
