12th World Championship in Dance Sport, 21st-25th May 2014, Pula, Croatia  


21st – 25th May 2014, IDF World Championship in Dance Sport.

This year the IDF most prestigious event was hosted in Croatia.

The 2013/14 season has not been easy due to various circumstances such as the political situation in Ukraine, extreme flooding in Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro as well as the financial crisis in many European countries. However, the World Championship has still attracted 22 nations and over 1400 dancers.

The competition was held across three stages where dancers presented themselves in a variety of disciplines from vivid and energetic Disco Dance, Disco Freestyle and Free Show to the most subtle Belly Dance, Dance Show and Disco Slow.

It was great to see commitment of so many parents some of whom have spent hours supporting their children. Beautiful hotels in an idyllic location combined with a delicate sea breeze and a perfect weather have definitely complemented the event offering a chance not only to compete but also to relax.

Similar to previous years dancers performed to the best of their abilities. The medal table has seen the Ukrainian team win with 115 first places achieved followed by runners-up Hungary and Italy in the third place.

Congratulations to Art Dance Studio and Tatjana and Robert Ban, the two masterminds behind the event, for their hospitality and excellent management of the competition.

Special thanks to the Presidents, Adjudicators, Team Leaders and Teachers from all the nations. I look forward to seeing you at our annual event, the General Meeting that will be held in December in Italy.

All the best,

Franco Ventura
IDF President
