Professional Division on worlddancesport.org 10/08/2011

World DanceSport Federation Professional Division The WDSF Professional Division (WDSF PD) is about to roll out its own section on this website. An official launch is planned during next week's German Open Championships (GOC) in Stuttgart.

The WDSF PD administers and governs the professional side of DanceSport autonomously with regards to the competitions, the competition rules as well as the licensing of professional athletes and officials.

The PD provides information in each of the above areas through a separate section on worlddancesport.org. The PD Event Calendar, the PD Results and lists of the PD Member Organisations and PD Adjudicators can be accessed from there.

After it was first presented during the WDSF Open Forum in Luxembourg this June, the WDSF PD Teacher & Student (T&S) Programme will feature prominently on the new section too. In fact, the members of the WDSF PD T&S Commission will also take advantage of the GOC to promote the programme to the community. A T&S promotional reel has been produced already.
