World Para Dance Sport made sure that the pandemic did not prevent them from reaching new audiences. In 2020 they held a Freestyle & Showdance virtual competition, which 100 participants from 19 nations joined. Athletes submitted their videos online, allowing their performances to be judged by a panel of international adjudicators in seven different categories. The virtual event was a unique opportunity for athletes to stay active and motivated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Winners from five countries in the seven categories of the first ever Freestyle & Showdance virtual event were announced on their website.
