2020 VisionAs per 2020 VISION, WDSF shall continue to strive to have DanceSport be part of the Olympic Games one day. However, the members of the task force acknowledge that all actions taken in that respect aim at self-improvement first and foremost, and that the way towards reaching the elusive goal should be the goal in itself.

With another review of DanceSport's status as an International Olympic Committee recognised sport due to start in 2015, the 2020 VISION task force works along a tight timeline to bring improvements to aspects such as the adjudicating.

SalsaJudging System












The WDSF Judging System 2.0 was rolled out in 2013, after its predecessor had been used in GrandSlam competitions for all of four years.  The fundamental changes that these systems brought to the adjudicating of DanceSport were praised by the athletes, the officials as well as the public and the media. With a view to the future, efforts will continually be made to refine the process of adjudicating and to improve its quality further.

WDSF is committed to continue with the development of the most transparent, objective and understandable system used in the judging of an artistic sport. The education and the training of the adjudicators are the other important aspects to get the attention of the 2020 VISION task force. New programmes to produce competent judges and to retrain them periodically will get designed together with the WDSF DanceSport Academy.

DanceSport by its very nature is in constant evolution. Through the 2020 VISION process new trends get monitored and, after careful consideration, suggestions are made as to what will be required to keep the WDSF brand DanceSport up-to-date.
