Vienna Dance Contest 2019

Last weekend was home to the Vienna Dance Contest 2018.

Recently, we heard from organiser, Roswitha Wetschka about the event and she shared her thoughts with us all:

“In the name of the organizing team a big thank you to everybody at the Vienna Dance Contest last weekend! To all dancers for being so joyful and inspiring, to the spectators for being so enthusiastic and loud, to the show people for being so amazing, to the helpers, sponsors, members of crew for making it happen. We had the time of our life! Please come back in 2020!!! The results are online since the day after the competition and available by clicking here

Well done to EVERYONE involved – another great and successful same sex dance competition for Europe!
