Under the agenda item 21.18, the IDSF General Meeting here in Mamer, LUX, has just carried a motion presented by the Presidium to change to name of the organisation to World DanceSport Federation (WDSF).

Consistent with the aims of the VISION 2012 development programme, the governing body will henceforth carry "World" in its name to emphasise the global character of DanceSport even further. The visual identity of WDSF will bear strong resemblance to the one of IDSF. Graphic files and a complete style guide will be available form the Corporate Identity section of this website in the near future.

One new and two old Associate Members have been (re)admitted to WDSF under new Associate Membership Agreements. The bonds between the

  • World Rock 'n' Roll Confederation
  • United Country and Western Dance Council
  • World Baton Twirling Federation

and WDSF have thus been strengthened further. Already in tomorrow's meeting of the WDSF Presidium, one representative of each Associate Member will be present.
