Dear Gumbo Dancers and Friends,

The USA Dance Gumbo DanceSport Championships NQE is officially open for business. Our team has been busy planning for what we hope to be our largest and most exciting competition weekend. Plan to join us at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, June 29, 30 and July 1st. Please check out our website at for details of this highly competitive and fun weekend.

Some of the opportunities to dance include:

  • The addition of a Young Adult age group (16-24).
  • The addition of a Senior V age group (75+).
  • A Pro-Am competition with many available events.
  • Mixed Proficiency events.
  • WDSF Open Senior I, II & III Standard events.
  • A number of fun single dance events.

The Gumbo would not be the Gumbo without its Lagniappe, so you will also enjoy the following:

  • Hospitality suite.
  • Banquet on Saturday evening.
  • Towels in the deck area.
  • A warm friendly atmosphere.

To register, go to our website at or This is your last opportunity to enjoy all the Gumbo has to offer, as our board has decided that the 2018 competition is the last Gumbo DanceSport Championships. Registrar Sterling Sightler is available to help with registration issues and questions at or (225) 205-8573.

Organizer Ann Durocher may be contacted with other questions at or (504) 722-4800.

Leading up to the Gumbo weekend, we will be updating our website with the latest news and periodically we will send out messages by email and social media, but at any time if you have questions or need information, feel free to contact us.

We look forward to providing you with another quality, competitive and fun weekend of dance and we look forward to seeing all of you in June.

Ann, Charlie and the Gumbo Team
