Wiek 1

Lodewijk Hendrik (Wiek) van Horck
(12-03-1948   -   20-07-2021)

On behalf of the Founding Members & the Management Team of the WorldCDF and with great personal sorrow, I would like to inform you that our Founding Member and good friend, Wiek van Horck, has passed away on 20 July 2021.


Wiek was one of the Founding Members, a member of the Management Team and was instrumental in the legalization of our Organization. Until January he served as Treasurer of the Worldcdf.

Because of his relentless dedication to the wellbeing of every dancer, he never denied his feelings and always chose the side of the dancers whenever he felt that it was the right thing to do. 


From the mid-eighties, Wiek was one of the driving forces behind our dance form. From the beginning, his relentless dedication and common sense mentality has contributed to where our Organization has grown to.

Wiek never wanted to stand in the spotlight. He preferred to operate behind the scenes but never lost control of what was going on. In spite of his declining health in the last couple of months, he kept managing the financial affairs of the European Championships up to a couple of days ago when, with tears in eyes, he had to admit that he had to surrender.


Over the past 30 years, Wiek has managed the financial interests of the European Championships, Dutch Championships, Dutch Country Western Dance Association and the WorldCDF.


We wish his wife and daughter lots of strength for the future.


During the upcoming Worlds we will remember Wiek for his enduring commitment and dedication on behalf of our dance form and Organization.

Herman Falkenberg
President of the World Country Dance Federation.
