13th World Championships in Dance Sport, Bellaria, Rimini, Italy  



The 13th World Championship in Dance Sport will be held in Bellaria, Igea Marina, Rimini on the Italian coast. This popular town has been a great location for the competitions in the past and this time the organisers promise it to be better than ever before. The competitors will have three dance floors at their disposal with one of them equipped with a sprung-type floor and two of them being bespokely constructed for the purpose of the event. The championship will commence with an official Opening Ceremony on Wed 27th May and will follow with four competition days. On-line registration for the event will open in early 2015. More information and details will follow shortly.


The World Championship will be held in all our Dance Sport disciplines (for details see section Dance Sport - Disciplines). The event will also include Hip Hop, House and Break Dance Battle Night. Building on the success of our competition last year we’ve invited six world famous dancers and artist to join us in Bellaria on Saturday 30th May 2015 and judge the battles. Our panel will consist of a legendary hip hop dancer, teacher and choreographer Kim Holmes known for her work with Jay-Z, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Missy Elliot, Salt-N-Pepa, Mya, Yummy Bingham, Deemi, Dance Fusion, and Kr3t’s, super hip hop and house star Serge Lopes from Serial StepperZ and BaDlanD Crews, top German hip hop dancer P.Dog and incredible Shannon, Martin Fiedler and Jimmy Yudat. The event will also feature DJ Simo and Host Riky. Registration on-site will start at 8.30pm with the event kicking off at 9.30pm.


We remind all dancers, teachers, choreographers, coaches and adjudicators that the World Championship 2015 will be held using the new Dance Sport rules. The rules have been distributed to all national federations' presidents and are also available on our website in the section Dance Sport - Rules.


As Bellaria and Rimini offer a vast selection of accommodation the groups should be spoilt for choice. Please see below example of accommodation available.
