Following last year’s success of the IPC Wheelchair DanceSport World Championship in Hannover, Germany, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) invites bidders to submit their application for the 2012 edition by 3 June 2011.

IDSF has signed a collaboration agreement with the IPC in 2008. This agreement calls for both organisations to promote Wheelchair DanceSport jointly, and to stage WCDS competitions alongside those for the able-bodied. It is for this reason that IDSF encourages its National Member Bodies to evaluate the possibility of hosting the 2012 World WCDS Championship in their country. For more information, refer to the IPC bid application documentation!

The 2010 World Championship registered the largest participation ever, with more than 150 dancers representing 21 nations in the different competitions. A total of eight gold medals were up for grabs in Hannover. Two styles – Duo and Combi – were contested. Duo style sees both dancers use wheelchairs, whilst Combi style sees only one dancer use a wheelchair, his or her partner is an able-bodied athlete.
