ABD Uniforms - JOINT STATEMENT FROM ABD & IDS - 10th March 2021

ABD's contract with IDS is due to end later this year.

Due to shortages of our original bespoke fabric, IDS is currently unable to supply Rose coloured leotards with sewn in skirts in three sizes: 0, 1,2.

However, IDS is allowing us to manufacture these with immediate effect in-house using a different fabric (same colour) and they will be available to purchase through ABD at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

IDS has excellent stocks of the remaining ABD uniforms and so these can continue to be purchased through IDS https://www.ids.co.uk/association-uniforms/associated-board-dance and parents can use Dance Direct https://www.dancedirect.com/uniforms/associated-board-of-dance

From 1st June 2021, all ABD Uniform purchases should be made through ABD at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for both teachers and parents.
Teachers will receive a discount if they sign up as a "Teachers Dancewear Shop".

In the unlikely event that IDS sells-through their remaining ABD stock of any item before the end of May then that item can thereafter also be purchased directly from the ABD website.

The small number of members with items on back order with IDS will be contacted by them for a refund (if they had not ordered on their account) and they should re-order from ABD immediately.

ABD would ask that members do not discuss these transition arrangements in any way on social media as IDS has worked in harmony with us to bring about a satisfactory conclusion.
ABD sends IDS every good wish and would like to thank them for their support over the last 5 years.
