Statement from WDSF Vice-President For Sport Nenad Jeftic 03/11/2020

The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) would like to extend its gratitude to the National Member Bodies (NMBs) of France and Slovakia that were recently forced to cancel their events due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The WDSF is appreciative of all the hard work, dedication and resources that the organisers put into hosting these events, which were scheduled to take place over the next two weeks.

The cancelled events are as follows:

  • The 2020 WDSF European Cup Ten Dance, originally scheduled to take place in Pontault Combault (FRA) on 7 November 2020;
  • The 2020 WDSF European Championship Show Dance Standard and Show Dance Latin, originally scheduled to take place in Bratislava (SVK) on 14 November 2020; and 
  • The 2020 WDSF Professional European Championship Standard, originally scheduled to take place in Bratislava (SVK) on 14 November 2020.

“The entire DanceSport community was pulling for our French and Slovak friends to be able to successfully hold these events in the face of such adversity, but unfortunately it was not to be,” said WDSF Vice-President for Sport Nenad Jeftic. “It is another tough blow for our dancers in what has been a very trying year for all of us.

“We thank everyone involved for their tremendous efforts to comply with all the safety measures under difficult conditions. In the end, however, the situation worsened and the governments of both countries prohibited these events from being held at this time.” 

The WDSF is conscious of the disappointment that these cancellations bring, especially for our athletes, and the continued difficulties they face even practising DanceSport under these challenging conditions.

The top priority of the WDSF remains the health and safety of the athletes, officials, and fans. We will work with our NMBs around the world to organise competitions when it is safe to do so, and we continue to closely monitor the evolution of the pandemic as well as the new safety measures implemented to control it.

The WDSF remains committed to returning stronger than ever once conditions allow us to return to competition.
