Not Until 2015 25/06/2014

Vienna, AUT - 9 June © Courtier While all other amendments to the Competition Rules went into effect on the very day of their adoption by the Annual General Meeting in Bucharest, the changes to Rule H (Showdance Competitions) will only be enforced from 1 January 2015.

Quite a few changes to Rule H were proposed by the Sports Commission and adopted by the AGM. From H.3.2 limiting an entrance and an exit of the athletes to 15 seconds, to  H.5 with clearer definitions of a hold and on to a new proceeding suggested under H.6 Rehearsals (*), all these changes will only go into effect from 1 January 2015 and do not apply to Championships and Cups held this year.

* 6.4.1 All athletes must be aware that their performances should have been reviewed by the National Invigilators in their National Championships and that their performance is in accordance with the WDSF Rules and Regulations for Showdance, prior to their participation in WDSF Showdance Championships.
