This is our mission


To create a real democratic honest World Dance Federation where everybody that like to become a member can be accepted as a member without having to go through the ”one member per country”.

To create an International forum for Dancers, Choaches, Dance school owners and Dance club Trainers where it is possible to discuss and develope dance competition disciplines in an modern and innovative way.

The WADF accepts that the Art of dance is much more than Dance Sport competitions.  There are two parts to be considered. In the WADF events the dancers are evaluated in both the Technical merit and in the Artistic merit. Artistic competitive dancing is first and foremost Art and Culture.

To give all dancers the chance to compete at International competitions without having to be elite dancers. To give all girls that did not found a boy to dance with a chance to be a team member in a Duo, Trio or a Small or Large team were also second and third rated dancers can fill a place.

To offer our members competitions from 7 main Departments containing 24 Dance Divisions including 56 competition Disciplines in 10 Age groups and 7 Categories ending up to more than 10.000 possible combinations.

Welcome to be a part of the WADF-family now!
