WorldCDF Judge Education

As of 2022, the WorldCDF will use "Open Judging" across all it's events.

This means that dancers will receive their detailed placements with the judges names by email after the event.

The WorldCDF believes that every organisation should be transparent towards it's dancers. You spend countless hours training for your dance sport, you deserve the fairest results from us.

That's what you will receive !

The goal of the new Judge Education Board is to create not only certified, but qualified judges that feel comfortable with the WorldCDF Group & Rank judges system.


  • LEVEL 1 - JUDGE APPRENTICE : Judge in training, who has reached the age of 21 years old and has filled in their application form (see below).
  • LEVEL 2 - JUDGE NATIONAL : Judges that passed the exam.
  • LEVEL 3 - JUDGE INTERNATIONAL : Any judge who already has the status of International Judge and all the judges who have passed their National exam.

No active dancer will be authorized to judge unless they have reached the Star divisions or is dancing as a Pro in the Pro-Am divisions.

The WorldCDF is very proud to present it's new Judge Education Board...
