The best World Dance Championship to date! Croatia once again welcomes the world!  


A huge success of the IDF 17th World Dance Championship Croatia 2019. From 22nd to 26th May 2019 Pula has once again hosted world top dancers who competed in the IDF most prestigious event. Both the IDF and the local organisers have worked extremely hard to elevate the standard of this much loved competition and the final outcome has been spectacular. Three impressive stages provided space to shine for nearly 2000 competitors from 17 countries who battled for titles from Wednesday to Sunday and delivered an unforgettable experience to vast audiences.


The standard of performances was outstanding, so judges didn't have an easy task. The trophies got nicely distributed among the participating nations, however the top three placings in the medal table went to Ukraine, Hungary and Poland.


The atmosphere was incredible with numerous opportunities to not only compete but most importantly to have fun, meet new people, make new friends and enjoy being part of the wonderful IDF Family.


Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to the huge success of this event - dancers, teachers, choreographers, parents, audience, judges, both the IDF and local staff and our tireless volunteers. Special mention goes to Robert Ban and Tatjana Samuele-Ban for the extra effort and quality that allowed us to deliver a truly remarkable and memorable event. Thank you Pula!
