DWC is pleased to announce the schedule for the DWC World Finals 2023 in Braga, Portugal.

THIS IS THE FINAL SCHEDULE - Updated 6 June 2023

Please download the schedules below again if you downloaded them before 6 June 2023. The detailed schedule and competitor information is available for dance schools on their entry system, and will be available to the public on the DWC App from 22 June.

Timings are approximate. Please consult the Live Schedule which will be available on the DWC webapp during the event, for up to date information at the competition.


Dancers must check in 1 hour before their class start time, and be ready to perform a minimum of 30 minutes before their class start time. Audience members are also advised to be in the theatres well in advance before the class start time, should the programme be running early.

DWC will not enter into discussions regarding changes to the schedule or further information regarding the order of dancers within classes.  If you are scheduled to perform on two stages at around the same time, we will structure the order of the class to give you enough time between your performances.
