Elegant, lively and acrobatic

In dance sport, male and female athletes pair up to compete together, and against each other, on the same field of play, for the same awards.
Dance sport contests are held in five disciplines:
Standard Dances comprise 5 dances: the Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep.

Latin American Dances comprise 5 dances: the Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive.

Ten Dance is the combination of all Standard and Latin American dances performed as a one-day event.

Formation Dance has eight couples dancing a fixed choreography, in either Standard or Latin American disciplines, to their own music.

Competition Rock-'n'-Roll features alongside the four traditional disciplines in The World Games 2005 Duisburg.

Proper technique is the foundation of all dancing. The music for all disciplines except Formation is selected by the organizers. The athletes do not know which melodies they will dance to; although the basic rhythm and the tempo for the music are both governed by the competition rules.
