The home of the Paralympic Movement – Bonn, Germany – is ready to welcome its first major Para sport event when the 2019 World Para Dance Sport Championships kick off Friday (29 November) at the Hardtberghalle.

The event will be historic for Bonn, which has headquartered the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) since 1999.

Furthermore, the 2019 Worlds will be a milestone for Para dance sport itself.

With the support of the City of Bonn, Aktion Mensch and Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung (DGUV), Para dance will see its biggest World Championships ever with 225 athletes (124 female and 101 male) from 26 countries competing across 21 medal events.

The competition runs until 1 December, with three full days of action.

The Bonn 2019 World Para Dance Sport Championships will be streamed live on the event website
