Dance Sport World Championship in Bellaria finally open! 


Bellaria has finally welcomed world best dancers. Over 1560 competitors from 31 countries arrived to 
the Emiglia-Romagna coast to fight for the World Champion titles. In line with our annual tradition the 
13th World Championship in Dance Sport started with a spectacular parade from through the streets of 
Bellaria with the applause of both local community and tourists. The Opening Ceremony included 
performances by the local band as well our special guests from the Rome Ballet. 
During the first day competitions were held on three stages where audiences could watch spectacular 
action in Fantasy and Free Show, Caribbean and Belly Dancing. The atmosphere, costumes, skills and 
passion of dancers were incredible and will long last in memory of all involved. Dancers, judges and 
crowds are looking forward to the remaining days and more up-coming excitement!
