Dear dancers,

Providing approval is granted on 2nd March, The Scottish Championships will change to ‘The UK OPEN’.

The new venue will be The Norbreck Castle Hotel in Blackpool, England, where modern ballroom dance was invented. The fun has not stopped, it has just moved…

The website with full info will be online soon.




Dear Dancers,

The WorldCDF Rules Board would like to take this opportunity to present to you the new WorldCDF Rules Book 2013

In the year 2012, some major changes have been made to several divisions and also some of our current rules have been clarified or have had minor changes. In the last year, we have received many emails from competitors, event directors and many others. All these emails were kept on file and discussed in the rules meetings.

Some of the suggestions have now been implemented in the new rules book but not all of the suggestions have been possible, as we have to look at how they would affect all of our dancers by the rule changes that were suggested.

The rules board did everything possible to clarify the rules and we have tried to explain the intention behind the rule where possible.

If on reading any rule you find that you are unsure or just want clarification of your interpretation, please do not hesitate in contacting the rules board at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a complete explanation.

Again for all of our WCDF members, please send the rules board all of your suggestions, tips and ideas for any future rule changes. The rules board is always open to suggestions and we appreciate any and all feedback that we might receive.


Barry Arbeider
Head of WorldCDF Rules Board
On behalf of The WorldCDF Rules Board

We have a new location for the BENELUX OPEN!!!

And after that many years having the competition in the Netherlands we felt that we should also go to Belgium.
As many of you have already visited the Belgian Championships and were more than happy about the location, we also chose this location for the BeNeLux Open 2013

It is a huge park with many cottages, swimming pool, watersports, climbing, etc etc.
And of course a lot of DANCING!! 

So do not miss this WCDF qualifying event!!! Open your agenda and add the date!!!
