The competition will be held from 4 to 6 June at the Tower Genova Airport Hotel & Conference Centre.

The World Cup will be the first official World Para Dance Sport competition since the 2019 World Championships in Bonn, Germany.

Teams have until 15 March to submit a letter of intent in case they plan to take part in the World Cup. The deadline for entries is 5 May.

“Liguria Region will be hosting one of the most important international events in the Para dance sport calendar this year. The World Cup will be an important path for the promotion of the sport nationwide in Italy. We would like to thank World Para Dance Sport, NPC Italy, the Italian Dance Sport Federation, the Liguria Region and the Municipality of Genoa for their support.” said the Genoa 2021 Local Organising Committee (LOC).
