Statement on the Status of WDSF Competitions 09/10/2020

Status The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) would like to congratulate all National Member Bodies for their efforts getting DanceSport back up and running after its long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, with the number of cases rising in many countries worldwide and new restrictions on travel and social distancing being imposed, the WDSF wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the status of upcoming competitions.

2020 WDSF Open European Championship Senior I Latin & Senior II Standard

The Dutch DanceSport Federation (NADB) had expressed its great desire to organise the 2020 WDSF Open European Championship Senior I Latin and Senior II Standard, scheduled to take place in Rotterdam on 23 and 24 October. Despite taking great strides to make it a reality, the event has unfortunately been cancelled in accordance with recent decisions taken by the Dutch government to stem the spread of the virus. The WDSF would like to thank the NADB for all its hard work and we commiserate with everyone affected by the cancellation, in particular the dancers.

2020 WDSF European Championship ShowDance Latin & Standard

On a bright note, the Slovak DanceSport Federation (SDSF) has received government approval to organise the 2020 WDSF European Championship ShowDance Latin and Standard on 14 November in Bratislava.

WDSF European Youth Standard and WDSF Open European U21 Standard

The WDSF Presidium is in the process of evaluating another SDSF proposal to host the WDSF European Youth Standard and WDSF Open European U21 Standard in Kosice on 22-23 November. Once a thorough review is completed, the Presidium is expected to give the green light to the SDSF.

WDSF European Championship Adult Latin & Standard

The WDSF Sports Commission is currently considering the feasibility of hosting the WDSF European Championship Adult Latin and Standard. Depending on how the COVID-19 situation evolves, should it be deemed safe to host the event it will take place on 4-5 December in a yet to be determined location.

The WDSF Sports Commission continues to analyse and monitor the situation on a weekly basis, adjusting its decisions accordingly. The Sports Department is working as hard as possible under these difficult and unforeseen circumstances, but due to the unpredictability of the pandemic cannot say with certainty that this Championship will go ahead in December. We will of course keep you updated as soon as new information becomes available and decisions are made.

The health of our dancers, adjudicators, fans and organisers remains our top priority. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding.

Stay healthy, everyone!
