We are pleased to announce that the Worlds XII website and Online Registration is now open.

You can find all information about the venue, hotel prices and the online registration link.
We hope to see you all in Veldhoven in January for another great World Championships.

Hotel bookings will soon be available.

Dear Dancers,
We are always happy to receive feedback from our dancers on any rules book clarification.  We  would however like to remind you that if you wish to receive a response from the rules board, this can only be done when you contact the rules board direct on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will not give opinions on social media as this would be an individuals opinion and not an official response from the rules board.
The website and Facebook announcements were made to remind our members of our current rules and to clarify the style of boots we have always worn. This was not a change nor an amendment to our boot rule, therefore we feel there is no need to get into a debate on what is or is not allowed. 
Making the announcement now was designed to save any other dancer buying these boots which would cost them a serious penalty, affection the outcome of their competition result.  
We appreciate that some people may have trouble wearing western boots, but we have always considered individual requests to obtain an 'exception' with regards to the wearing of boots. This you can request by emailing the rules board and attaching a medical support letter to prove your case. 
The wearing of non standard boots has never been allowed in our organisation, so this rule is not new. The rule will be enforced at all events.
The WorldCDF organisation has never sponsored any business of any description, and never promoted any company over another.
We hope this explains clearer the announcement and reminds you to always contact the rules board direct with all of your questions and feedback. 
With best regards,
The WorldCDF Rules Board

Dear Dancers,

As you might already know, the WorldCDF scoring format has originally been based on the international Skating system. Some adjustments have been made to this system to accomodate usage for all different dance types within the WorldCDF program.

For each division individual Judge reports are created which can be found in the Competition Results section of the WorldCDF website. These include the rules of scoring on both individual dance and overall placements. These reports are retained on our website during the calendar year. Overviews of final results and overall rankings are retained for longer term in the Archive section of the WorldCDF website. 

If you are interested in understanding the Scoring Rules, you can find a pdf guide here:

Dear Dancers,

There has been a recent trend where competition dancers are wearing West Coast Swing boots instead of our traditional Western Boots.

WCS boots

There is an important difference between these boots; WCS have a flat heel and Western have a western heel.

The rules board would like to inform all dancers that we do not allow the wearing of WCS boots during our competitions. If necessary, we will include the old boot measurements rule to the General Rules to enforce this rule in the future.

Please do not risk incurring a penalty by continuing to wear these non regulated boots. We are a Country Western organisation and all of our members should support us by wearing of correct footwear at all times during competition.

Thank you for supporting us,

The WorldCDF Rules Board


Full results for the Open Benelux 2017 are now online on the Results & Ranking page of the WorldCDF website.
