Born out of the VISION of an all-encompassing DanceSport, the WDSF-proprietary World DanceSport Games unite the different forms and styles of dance in a multi-disciplinary event that features top-level competition alongside with cultural programmes, galas and celebrations.
The WDSF World DanceSport Games bring together the international elites of the disciplines on their competition programme.
The WDSF World DanceSport Games promote the particular values of dance as sport through contests at the highest international level as well as through participatory programmes for the general public.
The WDSF World DanceSport Games bring out the common traits between the disciplines falling under the label “DanceSport.” To achieve this, the contests are staged concurrently and joint galas are performed.
The WDSF World DanceSport Games are staged over a period of maximum seven days in a single host city. Approximately 700 athletes and 100 officials participate in the inaugural edition.
The first WDSF World DanceSport Games were held in Kaohsiung, TPE, from 16 to 20 September 2013.
Subsequent editions are held at biennial or quadrennial intervals.
