In 2009, Dance World Cup was hosted in Jersey, Channel Islands. This was the first time the event had been held in Great Britain and we welcomed participants from as far away as Australia to the event.

With over 800 dancers participating in the competition this was an incredible cultural event for Dance and the Island. Jersey had never witnessed so many artistic performances from young dancers and it was truly memorable for all those involved.

The sun shone and all the participants had an amazing week making new friends at Dance World Cup. Many Europeans still comment on how much they enjoyed Dance World Cup 2009.

Here are some of our favourite memories of a fantastic Dance World Cup.
