THE INTERNATIONAL DANCE ORGANIZATION (IDO) HAS JOINED THE EUROPEAN FAIR PLAY FAMILY
The International Dance Organization (IDO) is delighted to announce that it has joined the European Fair Play Movement (EFPM). This initiative is the work by IDO Vice-President and Sports Director, Fiona Johnson Kocjancic, who has worked very closely with the EFPM so that IDO can be part of its family.
The main aim of the European Fair Play Movement is to promote Fair Play and Tolerance in the broadest sense, in sports and everyday life, at a European level. The EFPM seeks to achieve this goal by supporting its members, by helping to promote Fair Play campaigns where sports organisations take the initiative, by cooperating with the authorities to foster Fair Play themes and by facilitating regular contacts between the various European sports organisations.
IDO Vice-President, Fiona Johnson Kocjancic, said:
‘IDO is delighted to have become part of the European Fair Play family and we look forward to upholding their values and working closing with the Movement.’

The IDO World Gala Event trophy has been named the Bill Fowler Cup!
This was the announcement made at the IDO Gala World Event recently held in Ossa, Poland, by IDO Vice-President Fiona Johnson Kocjancic, who said:
'I am proud that this Gala is dedicated in the memory of a great person and a remarkable mentor – Dear Bill Fowler. One of the wishes of Bill was to have a name for the Gala trophy, like hockey has the Stanley Cup, Golf has the Ryder Cup, and so should dance have a special cup too.
Because of his remarkable contribution in the development of all Performing Arts Departments in the IDO, we feel that the name can only be Bill Fowler Cup. In this way Bill, our Honarary Lifetime President, will always stay in IDO for all future generations.’
Tap Dancer, Alexsander Ostanin from Ukraine was the first recipient of the Bill Fowler Cup, after been crowned the best of the very best in IDO for 2016 at the IDO World Gala 2017.
