WDSF World Open

In fact, DanceSport enthusiasts will have the opportunity to follow top-level competitions on this website over the upcoming weekend already.

The organisers of the danceComp in Wuppertal, GER, produce a live stream from the historic town hall. Well over 1,000 couples compete from 6 to 8 July at the spectacular venue, and a player that gets embedded here on this website should afford you a good look at the action. The starting lists for the World Opens in Latin and Standard confirm that many top-ranked couples will be in Wuppertal.

Then, on 14 July, the "Live from Chengdu" blog brings coverage on the GrandSlam Latin taking place there. WDSF Communications team member Helmut Roland travels to China to report from the venue.

Last but not least, the two GrandSlam events in Stuttgart, GER, will be the centre piece of what could easily become record-breaking reporting from the German Open Championships from 14 to 18 August. Stay tuned!
