The long wait for competition was finally over in June when Genoa, Italy hosted the 2021 World Cup marking the beginning of the Road to the Ulsan World Championships in November in South Korea.

Czech Republic will stage for the first time a Para dance sport official event with the Prague 2021 World Para Dance Sport International Competition in August.

The St Petersburg 2021 World Cup is set to take place in Russia from 10 to 12 September.

In early October, Para dancers will head to Lomianki, Poland to compete in the traditional yearly Para Dance Sport Polish Open. The city also hosted the last edition of the European Championships in 2018.

The Road to Ulsan 2021 kicked off in Italy with the successful Genoa 2021 World Cup taking on 82 athletes from seven countries across 21 events at the Tower Genova Airport Hotel & Conference Centre.

The Italian city was set to host the European Championships last year, one of the Para dance sport events cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 - alongside landmark competitions such as the Lomianki Polish Open, the Cuijk International in the Netherlands and the Mainhatten Cup in Germany.

Ulsan 2021 closes the season from 26 to 28 November, marking the first World Para Dance Sports Championships in Asia since 2013 in Tokyo, Japan.

You can follow all the action from the Road to Ulsan through World Para Dance Sport social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
