Open Platform Irish Dance Federation (OPIDF)
Opportunity - We provide a supportive environment that cultivates a rewarding dance experience for teachers, dancers and schools.
Passion - We are committed to creating an engaging and welcoming atmosphere that inspires, facilitates teaching and encourages learning. We celebrate, reward and recognise our members achievements.
Integrity - We believe that trust is a fundamental requisite of a successful federation. With our consistency of actions and stated values, we are able to provide competitive and fair competitions.
Diversity - We strive to minimise barriers and to make Irish dance accessible to all, regardless of ability, ethnicity, race or gender. We actively promote diversity and inclusion. We demonstrate this by actively promoting deaf awareness and being the first Irish dancing federation worldwide to be accessible to those who are deaf/hard of hearing.
Friendship - We build relationships to achieve our visions and values. We encourage the development of life skills such as loyalty, discipline, leadership and being a team player.
