First runners-up were last year´s winners, Anton Aldaev – Natalia Polukhina (RUS).

Showdance Standard was a joyful competition colored with traditional national costumes and styles. World Championship title was taken by the Russian couple Dmitry Pleshkov – Anastasia Kulbeda (RUS), being 2nd last year, right after Björn Bitsch – Ashli Williamson (DEN), who left their podium place free for new candidates, continuing their career in PD.
