The Tulip Challenge 10th Anniversary took place March 8-10, 2019 in De Rijp, Netherlands. For the first time in Europe we were able to offer a 7 judge panel for UCWDC competitions from all over the world including USA, Europe & Asia.

As we always do we offered the first judges CEU class of the year in which all judges present took
part before they began judging the weekend’s competitions.

We introduced a fantastic new non-ucwdc competition ‘1st Annual Same-Gender & Reverse Role
Championships. This was offered in pro/am and couples and we had competitors from
newcomer through Star level dancers. It was a lot of fun and a huge success.

Our Saturday evening show featured the two reigning Superstar world champions performing plus
our ‘Battle of the Tulip’ featuring advanced and superstar dancers in a ‘dance-off’. We were also
honoured to crown yet another Superstar at our event – congratulations to Jana Boegarts!

Every year we rent buses to take everyone to downtown Amsterdam for a fun evening out to
celebrate another great year. This year was certainly no exception!

We would like to thank all the staff, volunteers and competitors for making our 10th Anniversary
such a huge success. If you have not been to Europe – please join us next year at the biggest
European UCWDC event! Check us out on facebook or on our website

Clive, Daan & Pam.
