The Home of Lyrical Dance

Founded in Dublin, Ireland, WLDF has become the absolute centre of all things Lyrical Dance. As the company has grown it has branched out into other countries. We have WLDF Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, Iceland, USA, South Africa and Canada. But it doesn’t stop there. There are lots more countries just waiting to join. This website has been created to keep you up to date with our news.


About WLDF

The World Lyrical Dance Federation welcomes all dance groups. To get involved Dance Teachers need to register first before any dancers can register. For more information on how to register as a Dance School please download the WLDF App.

The WLDF works on a grading system. Each dancer receives their own card so they can keep track of results and lost lives as they work their way up through the grades.


WLDF Grading

First Timer: This is for dancers brand new to WLDF.
Level One: Once dancers dance in First Timer dancers go straight into Level One.
Level Two: Loss of 3 Level One Lives and dancers are promoted to Level Two. Dancers can also get an automatic promotion to this section from First Timers if the judges consider them to be at this level.
Advanced: Loss of 3 Level Two Lives.
Super Star: Dancers with special needs.
Professional: Dance Teachers.
Pro/Am: Dance Teacher and a Student
