The atmosphere and the joy of the movement were enjoyed by both children and adult dancers, altogether 2,897 dancers came to CENTRE BABYLON, with their coaches, families and fans. They were dancing not only in the halls but also in the corridors and in the hotel, dancers could be met everywhere.

"It was very demanding event for the organizer, the biggest of its kind in the world and I am happy to be here" said the president of the WADF organization, Mr. Nils-Hacken Carlzon, at the closing ceremony. He thanked to the organizers and added that the director of the competition Mgr. Ilona Šulcová and her team managed the event brilliantly, and that the negotiations concerning next year´s event has just begun. So we can look forward to the WADF World Dance Championship 2018 in Liberec and it will certainly be a bit bigger

The number of dancing performances that could be seen - 9,802, 149 trophies awarded, 685 medals. These are numbers that confirm that the open world championship is an exceptional event. The competition is unique because it is possible to dance and compete in more disciplines and dance performances, so the best ones have won even several precious metals and cups. In the international judge panel are dancing masters and professional dancers. The patronage for the Liberec Region was taken over the event by the Governor Mgr. Martin Půta. Before the the competition the international judges were accepted at the Liberec City Hall by the Mayor Tibor Batthyany, who took over the patronage for the statutory city of Liberec.,

The most numerous were the Czech expeditions, numerous and very successful were also expeditions from Russia and Poland. There were also Italy, Hungary, and the German expeditions which were bigger this year. There were up to 2000 contestants and 1000 spectators a day. This year's new wheelchair dancing discipline was opened. The background was prepared for them and we believe that they enjoyed the competition and that they enjoyed a great atmosphere. We hope there will be more dancers the next year. The entire championship thus fulfills its slogan "Let's Dance the Freedom".
