Enchanting Offenburg, Germany

The 2017 finals held at one of the most culturally rich destinations

The City - surrounded by vineyards and situated at the river Kinzig - has much to offer: a historical centre with a baroque scenery, various hiking and cycling trails, a variety of cultural events, gastronomy of Baden.
And those who site in a street cafe in the town centre on a sunny day immediately notice where this town got its name from: the citizens of Offenburg or "open castle" as the name is literally translated are open-minded, the townscape cheerful and congenial, the atmosphere friendly and pleasant, light, open - Offenburg is a European town to feel good in, surrounded by one of Germany's most attractive surroundings, the Ortenau.

On Saturday the 27th of June 2015, Bucharest was welcomed by the breath-taking large group of passionate and spirited dancers; as the Opening Ceremony for the Dance World Cup finals commenced.

In 2015 the experience of Dance World Cup was taken to a whole new level with the introduction of Club Wow, the media home of the Dance World Cup and introduced a new kind of live streaming that had never been experienced before. 2015 saw the largest group of online audience across the world stream in and watch the Dance World Cup and support their nations as they compete for their titles.

Standards were higher than ever before and the talent didn’t not disappoint. A great many new friends were made and the spirit of dance only grew in abundance


In 2014, the Dance World Cup finals saw around 3000 competitors from 28 countries across the globe participate in Algarve, Portugal. The Congress Centre came alive as it boomed with exhilaration, as a multitude of dancers and supporters brought their spirit and vibrant culture to the energetic city of Algarve. The warm sunny skies and the crisp blue waters of the Rio Arade set the backdrop for a pulsating extravaganza.

Throughout the competition, dancer’s excelled in each of their routines, showcasing their top talents and giving us a peak at what each country had to offer.

All in all, the 2014 Dance world Cup finals saw a passion for dance that will for ever be remembered.

22In 2013, Dance World Cup was hosted by the City of Brighton. This was our largest event to date with 3,000 young dancers taking part and having the opportunity to perform on the Brighton Dome Concert Hall stage.

Our opening ceremony this year included performances from professionals within the English industry and a highlight were routines performed by Unity UK.

All of the participants of Dance World Cup 2013 showed an incredibly high standard of dance and each participant excelled on the day and we welcomed Spain for the very first time to the competition. The competition was also attended by participants from Malaysia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and our new friends from India.

VILLACHBefore we arrived in Villach in June 2012 our participants were unaware of the sheer beauty that awaited them for their stay in this picturesque location.

The Congress Centre Villach was the perfect venue for Dance World Cup the 2,000 participants enjoyed performing on a wonderful stage and the surrounding areas were just fabulous for the competitors to practice. One of our memories is of watching the Malaysians rehearsing along the riverbank before breakfast and before their performance. The city were incredibly welcoming to the international dancers and it was a week of dance that we will never forget.

parisIn June 2011 1,800 participants descended upon the Disneyland Paris Resort to take part in Dance World Cup 2011.

One of Dance World Cup’s most memorable events took place that year with 1,200 children performing in the main Disneyland Park to a specially choreographed routine for Dance World Cup. This was also the competition where our now recognisable theme tune was first played to thousands.

This competition really signalled the arrival of Dance World Cup and the event alerted many more to what Dance World Cup is trying to achieve by bringing all the children together through the celebration of Dance.
