Why the World Latin Dance Cup in Colombia?

We are the largest latin dance competition in the world where we will join around 3,000 dancers in a new cultural experience.

The 10th edition of the World Latin Dance Cup will be carried out in Medellín, Colombia.  It is the first time we organize the event in a location outside of the United States. The reason is that, after ten years of trajectory, experiences and learning, we consider that it is the moment to make changes and offer a new experience to each one of our participants.

If you’re wondering why we chose Medellín as the venue for the 10th World Latin Dance Cup, it’s because the city is prepared for world-class events.  

We show you here the details:

Medellín is one of the most recognized cities in Colombia and Latin America for being the perfect space for business tourism. The “city of big events” as Procolombia calls it, has been the site of important international conferences such as the World Urban Forum in 2014, the World Entrepreneurship Congress in 2016, Colombia Moda 2019 and other events of great magnitude such as Madonna’s concert in 2012 that demands high standards of quality and shows that the city is prepared for this type of events and to provide quality and attention to national and international visitors. 

It has an infrastructure developed to realize successful events of high magnitude. It has hotels of a large capacity to accommodate visitors from all over the world and we take the opportunity to tell you that the Intercontinental is the official hotel of the competition which has benefits such as buffet breakfast, swimming pool, jacuzzi, wifi, VIP area to see the competition, and practice room, at a preferential prize for competitors.

In general, Colombia has good air connections with international destinations.  Most visitors remember Medellín as a hospitable city with helpful people, so those who will be part of WLDC 2019 will live a different experience.

If you’re wondering about mobilization, the city is known for its mass transportation system that integrates various forms of travel.  The most important is the Medellin Metro, which crosses the entire metropolitan area from north to south and has generated the metro culture. In addition there is the Tram and the Metro Cable that cover different zones.  Also important is the good taxi service and mobility applications like Uber and Cabify.

As mentioned above, Medellin is considered a strategic city for international congresses, fairs and summits, which attract the public for its tourist, commercial, cultural and specially for its landscape and spring climate. Get ready to show your talent in a new space!


As a Latin American destination, it works as a favorable place for the exchange of knowledge about Latin rhythms. Salsa is recognized as an element of Colombia’s cultural identity and is considered the cradle of this genre.  However, specifically in Medellin, Tango has become an important part of its popular culture and even has its own event “Festival Internacional de Tango Medellín”, which has also attracted thousands of tourists. Likewise, the rest of the rhythms have a great reception.

As an organization we are convinced that this edition will remain in the memory and hearts of all our participants, as it will be a different experience where our main objective is to cultivate a culture of dance and what better than to live it in the ideal place.

We will be announcing more details soon.
