Dear athletes,

unfortunately the Austrian Open Championships 2021 have to be cancelled. As the current situation and the increasing number of infections show us, further restrictions are to be expected in the coming weeks and months. All these unforeseen circumstances make the calculation and the probability of reducing the financial risk to a viable minimum almost impossible. The effects of COVID-related restrictions on the number of participants, audience numbers and the associated higher costs due to additional security requirements have forced the organizers with a heavy heart to make a decision at this point in time. From now on, cancellation costs would have come into play that cannot be covered by the organizing associations and private persons.

We hope for a better future and wish everyone to stay healthy!


Austrian Open Championships, November 20th – 22nd, 2020, CANCELLED!

The Austrian Open Championships, traditional annual event in Multiversum, Schwechat, unfortunately has to be cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020.

The Austrian government has meanwhile permitted the organization of events. To ensure the health and safety of both active participants and spectators, there is a comprehensive catalog of measures for organizers. At an event of the size of the Austrian Open, we see no way to do justice to these measures.

For the organizers it was a difficult decision. However, we are fully aware of the responsibility to ensure the safety and health of everyone involved. Therefore, the step to cancel was unfortunately necessary.

However, we are now using the time to plan the event in 2021, to take the catalog of measures into account and to be well prepared.

We are therefore looking forward to seeing you again from November 19th-21st, 2021 at the Austrian Open 2021 in Vienna-Schwechat.

AOC 52nd Viennes Waltz Championship – Open to the World

Goffredo / Matus new World Champions Latin

3.000 Fans were celebrating the new World Champions Goffredo/Matus
On Friday, November 20th, the Austrian Open Championships 2015 were officially opened. 2.000 couples from 55 nations were nominated for the 19 competitions and two World Championships. The AOC 2015 started with the Vienna Waltz competition in which the austrian couple Vasily Kirin and Ekaterina Prozorova danced to gold. In front of more then 3.000 enthusiastic fans, Gabriel Goffredo and Anna Matus were celebrating after they have reached gold at the WDSF World Championship Latin on Saturday. Vadim Garbuzov/Kathrin Menzinger closed the Austrian Open Championships with their phenomenal performance to „Fifty Shades of Grey“. After gold at the World Championship Showdance Latin, they are now also World Champion Showdance Standard.

It was one of the most successful finals ever seen. The former World Champions Nino Langella/Khrystyna Moshenksa were not dancing together any more as well as some other successful couples. Experts as well as officials and fans were not able to say who will be the favourite for the World Championship Latin.

In the final the moldavian couple Gabriel Goffredo/Anna Matus performed best and won Gold for the very first time. Anna Matus: „It was a tough championship. We were able to get better and better during the competition. We stil can´t believe that we are World Champion.“

In the WDSF World Open Standard competition Simone Segatori/Annette Sudol won another title in Austria after the World Championship 2014. The austrian couple Vasily Kirin/ Ekaterina Prozorova reached rank three, after their victory in the Vienna Waltz competition on Friday.

On the last day of the Austrian Open Championships, the host celebrated two gold medals. Hofer/Westermayer danced to gold at the WDSF Rising Star Standard competition. The highlight of the last day was the WDSF World Championship PD Showdance Standard. With their performance to „Fifty Shades of Grey“ Vadim Garbuzov and Kathrin Menzinger got 42 points in total and were ranked number 1. They are now World Champions Showdance Latin and Standard.
