142 Standard couples in Senior II gathered in Calvia on Mallorca, ESP, to dance for the world title.

As was the case two years earlier, when the 2011 World Championship was also held on the Balearic island, Germans Heinz-Josef Bickers - Aurelia Bickers claimed first again, making it their third consecutive win altogether.

Runners-up were Carlo Wilmer Righero - Manuela Traversi, ITA, in second and Moreno Carnelli - Michela Saggiorato, ITA, in third.

The 2013 European DanceSport Championship Youth Ten Dance was held in the Moldovan capital Chisinau. Alexandru Birca - Ekaterina Vyalshina, MDA, won ahead of Anton Lam-Viri - Anna Ilina, RUS, and Paraschiv Mihai-Vlad - Diandra-Aniela Illes, ROU.
