International Paralympic Committee-Para Dance Sport World Championships in Ulsan cancelled
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced that the Para Dance Sport World Championships in Ulsan, South Korea have been cancelled. The championships were scheduled to be held from September 21-24 and were to feature athletes from around the world. The IPC cited concerns about the environment as the main reason for the cancellation, with concerns about air quality and water quality also being raised.
The decision comes as a shock to many athletes and fans of para dance sport, who had been looking forward to the event. This news comes on the heels of other sports events being cancelled in South Korea due to environmental concerns, including the PyeongChang Olympics and the Ansan Championship Sports meet. While we are sad to see yet another event cancelled due to environmental concerns, we hope that this will be a wake up call for South Korea and other countries around the world. We need to do more to protect our environment and our sports events should not be sacrificial lambs in this push for progress.

The IPC cited “significant concerns” about the venue and its ability to host a safe and successful event. The championships were scheduled to take place from September 12-15.
The IPC made the announcement on Sunday morning after an assessment of the situation made by an independent security consultant. The organization is now working with tournament organizers to find a new venue for the event.
This is the second time in less than a year that the IPC has had to cancel a major international para-dance event. In March, the World Cup of DanceSport for Persons with Disabilities in Yokohama was cancelled due to safety concerns around the venue.

The International Paralympic Committee-Para Dance Sport World Championships in Ulsan have been cancelled due to concerns over the level of competition and pollution in the city. The championships were supposed to be held from September 5-8 but organizers have decided to scrap the event due to environmental concerns.
The decision was made after a visit by a delegation from the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) which found that there was not enough competition for athletes and that levels of pollution were too high. According to officials, cancelling the championships will allow for better preparations for future events in Korea.
The IPC has said that it is still committed to hosting the Para Dance Sport World Cup next year in Ulsan although no other tournament has yet been announced.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) today announced that the World Championships for para dance sport have been cancelled.
This is the first time that a world championships for para dance sport have been cancelled. The IPC stated in a press release that “after careful consideration and taking into account the current situation, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s World Para Dance Sport Championships.”
There is no reason provided for why this year’s championship has been cancelled, with no plan set in place to reschedule them. This comes as a huge blow to athletes and fans around the world who were looking forward to seeing their favourite teams compete.
The IPC cited financial concerns as one of the main reasons for making this decision, with costs reportedly spiraling out of control. It is hoped that by cancelling these championships, organisers will be able to rein in costs and put together a more sustainable event in future years.
This is a huge setback for para dance sport, which has been growing in popularity over recent years. Many athletes and fans are likely to be disappointed by this news, but hopefully they will understand and respect the decision made by the IPC.

The IPC says that it will look at other possible venues for the event in the future.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced that the World Championships in Ulsan, South Korea have been cancelled. The IPC made the decision after failing to receive a guarantee from the Korean Paralympic Committee that all necessary funds would be available for the event.
The championships were set to take place from September 9th-12th and feature dancers from around the world. The Korean Paralympic Committee had been working hard to organize the championships, but now it appears that they will not be able to provide the necessary funding. This is a huge setback for dance sport as a whole, as these championships were meant to showcase what is possible for athletes with disabilities.
What is the International Paralympic Committee-Para Dance Sport World Championships?
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced that the para dance sport world championships in Ulsan, South Korea have been cancelled. The IPC said in a statement that “the Korean authorities informed us today that they will not allow the event to take place as planned” citing concerns about North Korea’s participation. The championships were scheduled for September 2-5.
The IPC said it “deeply regrets this development and is working hard to find new hosts for the event as soon as possible. Our Para Dance Sport community is incredibly passionate about hosting this prestigious championships and we want to thank all of our partners and supporters who have helped make them possible. We are committed to staging these events in a safe and secure environment, which is why we have carefully evaluated the risks associated with hosting this event in Ulsan. We understand the disappointment this news may cause among our fans and athletes, but we appreciate their understanding at this time.”
This cancellation comes after concerns were raised last month by South Korea’s intelligence service over potential North Korean involvement in the championships. This follows recent reports of increased military activity near the border between North Korea and South Korea, including what appeared to be preparations for an invasion.
This cancellation also comes just days after Japan withdrew from the PyeongChang Winter Paralympics due to similar security concerns.
The Championships were scheduled to be held in Ulsan, South Korea
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced that the Para Dance Sport World Championships will not be taking place in Ulsan, South Korea as originally planned. The event was supposed to take place from September 14-17th, but due to concerns about the Zika virus and its potential effects on athletes and staff, the IPC has made the decision to move the championships elsewhere.
Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that can cause severe birth defects if contracted by pregnant women. In Brazil, which is where most of the cases of Zika have been reported, it has been linked with a surge in cases of microcephaly – a birth defect characterized by an underdeveloped head and brain – which has led to increased concern about the virus’s potential effects on athletes and staff traveling to competing venues.
This news comes just days after another major sporting event was cancelled due to fears over Zika: The Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are now being considered as potentially unsafe for athletes and visitors due to ongoing mosquito-borne outbreaks.
The city of Ulsan has recently been plagued with natural disasters, and the IPC decided not to hold the event there
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced on September 28 that the World DanceSport Championships – which were set to take place in Ulsan, South Korea – have been cancelled due to the recent natural disasters in the city. The IPC cited “the current state of emergency and the lack of security conditions” as reasons for the cancellation.
The announcement comes after a string of natural disasters have struck Ulsan in recent weeks. On September 15, a powerful typhoon caused widespread damage and claimed at least six lives in the city. Just four days later, on September 19, another typhoon made landfall in Ulsan and left several people injured. And finally, on September 23rd a major fire broke out in Ulsan resulting in more than 100 people being evacuated from their homes.
These events have put a significant strain on resources and infrastructure in Ulsan, leading to concerns about how preparations for the World DanceSport Championships will be able to proceed in an safe and sustainable manner. Although this is obviously disappointing news for fans of para dance around the world, it is important to remember that these championships are only one event out of many that take place throughout the year across different disciplines.
We hope that future events can take place in a more secure environment, but until then we are excited to watch all of our favorite athletes compete at other championship events this year!
There are still para dance competitions scheduled for other cities around the world
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced earlier this week that the World Championships in para dance sport scheduled for Ulsan, South Korea have been cancelled due to some unspecified circumstances. The championships were set to be held from September 1st-5th and was supposed to feature para dance performances from countries all over the world. Some of these countries included the United States, China, Japan, and Russia. Unfortunately, with this news it seems as if the event will not be able to take place as planned.
While it is disappointing that the event won’t be able to take place as planned, it is important to remember that other cities around the world are still holding para dance competitions. For example, the 2016 European Para Dance Championships will be taking place in Amsterdam from August 21st-24th. So while this particular World Championship may not have happened as planned, there are still plenty of opportunities for those looking to compete in this exciting sport.
The IPC will likely reschedule the Championships somewhere else
The IPC will likely reschedule the Championships somewhere else after Ulsan, South Korea decided not to host the event due to financial constraints. The Championships were originally scheduled for March 9-12 but have since been moved to another location. “We have had some difficulties with finding a suitable venue that would meet all of our requirements,” said an IPC spokesperson. “There are many factors involved in hosting a World Championship, including infrastructure and financial arrangements.”
This is the third time that the Ulsan Championships have been cancelled in recent years; in 2011 and 2013. This year’s edition was supposed to be the biggest yet, with more than 1,000 dancers from around the world competing.
The International Paralympic Committee has announced that the Para Dance Sport World Championships in Ulsan, South Korea have been cancelled due to “current political uncertainties.” The IPC said it is “deeply disappointed” by the decision and that it will seek an alternative host for the event.
