It is with great sadness we inform you that the Professional Championships at the German Open Championships (Stuttgart) will no longer be part of the world renowned WDC World Super Series. This will surely be very disappointing to those visitors to the GOC who , for many years have enjoyed the performances of the Worlds Best Professional dancers, the competitors of the WDC.

The contract between GOC and the World Dance Council was terminated following the decision of the GOC to limit entries to the Professional Championships by entering into an agreement with the IDSF Professional Division. This occurred despite the long-standing mutual co-operation between the Professional organisation of Germany (DPV) and Amateur Organisation of Germany (DTV).

We would urge everyone reading this press release to inform all competitors and members of the Dance fraternity that the best Professional Competitors will no longer be taking part in Stuttgart which will surely diminish the value of these formerly great championships
