The first edition of the International Christmas Dance Festival (oldest name: International Polish Championships) took place in Raszyn in December 2020 as part of the 20th edition of World Dance Week. Their organization resulted from the need of the hour and effectively filled the place of the World Championships canceled due to the pandemic. The International Christmas Dance Festival refers to the tradition of the World Dance Week, which we have been organizing continuously since 2001.

The location of the competition at the Raszyński Sports Center is not accidental. The positive decision to start permanent cooperation with the Sports Center in Raszyn is a response to the professional approach of the Director of the Sports Center, Katarzyna Klimaszewska - a woman who is devoted to sport and culture, for whom the impossible does not exist. The Sports Center in Raszyn meets the expectations of the Organizers, and all employees of this institution are always helpful and positive towards cooperation.
