WHAT
DO WE DO

 

OUR DEDICATED TEAM

This is not our main profession. The A.S.D.U.International is a non-profit association which organises championships for dancers throughout the world every year. We are convinced that dancing is a wonderful sport and we want to promote it further. Dancing is not only physical education, dancing is art, dancing is showing emotions in motion… And holding events for dancers is a lot of fun.

That´s why we organise these competitions every year.


 

HOW WE CAME HERE

1998 – The beginning

Everything starts somewhere. The Austrian Showdance Union International was founded by Rudolf Mlaker whose daughter is a dancer. He had the idea of connecting dance schools and dancers. Cohesion, challenges, fun dancing … to name a few of his reasons for founding this association.

2004 – For the first time …

we had more than 650 registered dances.

2012 – Change of President

In 2012, after 14 years of successful championships, Karin Csitkovics became the new president.

2016 – Our rating system

Evaluation sheets are a thing of the past, so we switched to a new digital system that is not only more efficient but also better for the environment.
Can you imagine how much A4 paper were used per championship? Approximately 10.430  A4 sheets!

DANCING

We don't just organize championships, we live them. This is also reflected in our expert jury, which comes from the international dance scene. The jury is trained every year to be able to evaluate the new dance talents.
