Happy New Year 2020! 31/12/2019

New Year

The GrandSlam Series, as the jewel of WDSF Standard and Latin competition series remained luminous and highlighted the year with the best DanceSport couples in the World. The six fabulous events brought light and glamour, combined with high-quality Standard and Latin DanceSport to the eyes of millions of people. The statistics of the WDSF social media channels show there was a rapid trend upwards when looking at the number of views, likes and engagements, meaning the message of DanceSport has spread well to the sports-loving public.

Over 150 b-boys and b-girls participated the 2019 WDSF World Breaking Championships in Nanjing (CHN). Breaking also debuted at the World Urban Games, and received a thumbs-up from the IOC Session for a possible inclusion on the sports programme of the Olympic Games Paris 2024. And, the most recent news tell Breaking will be included in the sports programme of the Youth Olympic Games Dakar 2022. The success story tells about the worldwide appeal and growth of Breaking, which with its energy, athletic excellence, innovation and youth appeal continues to thrive and excite all around the world.

DanceSportTotal.com relaunched and a vast number of events were streamed live, or broadcasted some days later after the event. Some past events, which have not been seen before on WDSF channels, were also added to the channel, and more events are on the way! ”The more subscribers, the more content” has been the leading idea for the platform, and in 2019 everything went according to plans.

New World Champions were crowned, and some of the Champions defended their last year’s titles successfully. We saw some couples finishing their career in competitions, while for others the career has just started to flourish. We saw comebacks. We saw some couples starting a new chapter in their career. New competition formats were tested and adjusted, and some have already been brought into use.

And, there was a lot more! All the wonderful moments on and off the dance floor, emotions, wow-factors, sport spirit, support, standing ovations, tears of joy, tears of sadness and, most of all, respect to all involved. This is what 2019 was all about.

With such an amazing year behind us, we would like to thank you for taking part in it. For the new year, there is much to look forward to, and many spectacular moments to come.

Our warmest wishes for the new year to all friends of DanceSport! May all your dreams for 2020 be fulfilled!
