Dear Competitors and Members,

Currently, the outbreak of the Covid-19 is hitting people everywhere very hardly and it’s starting to expand its effects into many countries around the world. 

In light of this worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, it does also affect the Worldcdf which consequently has already resulted in cancelling several events. 

At this moment we cannot foresee how this situation will continue and develop.

Unfortunately, it is expected that this new Coronavirus will remain among the world population for a longer period of time and might result in the cancellation of several other events. If this will be the case, the Management Team will closely coordinate these actions with the Event Directors who will have to adhere to their National Governments.

We have decided together with the Dance and the Rules Committees that the 2020 dances will also apply to 2021. That does justice to those who have already spent time and money on the dances. The new data will be adjusted on the relevant web pages.

The Management Team will provide appropriate solutions and answers to questions regarding Worlds qualification and Graduation points after the Coronavirus is globally controlled.

Please be safe, be responsible and look after your friends, family and neighbors in these difficult times. Furthermore, we express our deepest sympathy and support to everyone affected by this virus.

Herman Falkenberg

President, Worldcdf


With pain in our heart we have to cancel our Benelux Open because of the Corona virus.
The reason they gave us, was the international character and age of many of the competitors.

Dancers who paid their fee for the competition will be reimbursed of course. At this moment we are negotiating with the hotel for next year and we will let you know as soon as possible.

Stay healthy and we hope to see you at the Europeans in June.

Due to the current development in the spread of the corona virus we have contacted the public health department and have to cancel this year's Berlin Open with a heavy heart.

We would like to fulfill our responsibility as organizers to protect the health of all our participants and guests in the best possible way. We will transfer the registration fees back to you and ask you for a little patience to organize everything.

We ask for your understanding and are looking forward to welcoming you all healthy again next year from 19.-21.3.2021 and to dance with you.

Best regards from your Berlin-Open-Team



Aufgrund der aktuellen Entwicklung in der Verbreitung des Corona Virus haben wir uns mit dem Gesundheitsamt in Verbindung gesetzt und müssen die diesjährigen Berlin Open schweren Herzens absagen.

Wir möchten als Veranstalter unserer Verantwortung gerecht werden, all unsere Teilnehmenden und Gäste bestmöglich in ihrer Gesundheit zu schützen. Die Anmeldegebühren werden wir zurück überweisen und bitten Euch ein wenig um Geduld, um das alles zu organisieren.

Wir bitten Euch um Verständnis und freuen uns darauf, Euch im nächsten Jahr vom 19.-21.3.2021 alle gesund wieder zu begrüßen und mit Euch zu tanzen.

Euer Berlin-Open-Team
