For the programme of the 2019 Continents Cup section we announce:
1. Traditional Continents Cup Group Freestyle event
Groups of 4 – 8 athletes are allowed to participate in the Continents Cup Group Freestyle event with at least 50% wheelchair athletes.
Time duration of the Group performance: up to 3:00 min.
And very NEW Events:
2. Kids Single Conventional events
We invite participants at the age of 7-12 years (2007 - 2012 year of birth) to take part in that event.
The dance program of this group will be the same as the official Junior Single Conventional with 3 dances to compete: Waltz, Samba and Jive.
3. New events in Freestyle section!
- Juniors / Kids Single Freestyle

Time duration of Junior / Kids Single Freestyle performance: up to 2:00 min (it can be any time, but not more than 2 minutes).
Time duration of Junior / Kids Combi Freestyle performance: up to 2:00 min
As we have no idea of the number of Combi couples willing to take part in Junior / Kids Combi Freestyle event we decided to hold this event without age division. For example, there can happen that one athlete in Combi couple is of Junior age already and the other one – of Kids age.
Time duration of "Kid and Parent" Combi Freestyle performance: up to 2:00 min
This is a very new event we are going to try. Kid is a wheelchair user and Parent is able-bodied dancer. Let's see what happens!
It is already very good and exciting tradition that as the final point of the Saint Petersburg 2019 World Para Dance Sport World Cup – Continents Cup the unique show of the best wheelchair dancers of the World will take place. The "Show of Champions" to your attention!
