Update on Eurovision Young Dancers 2017
Geneva, Switzerland -

The EBU has announced that the 2017 edition of Eurovision Young Dancers will no longer take place in Valletta, Malta as previously stated.

Member PBS, who agreed to host the event in 2015, has due to circumstances beyond their control been forced to cancel their staging of the competition in June 2017. Unlike the Eurovision Song Contest, where Members agree to host if they win the event, there’s no obligation for participating broadcasters to host the Eurovision Young Dancers competition. The EBU therefore relies on its Members to volunteer to take on the responsibilities and partial costs of host broadcaster.

The EBU is currently looking for another host broadcaster but should one not be found in such a short timeframe the competition will not take place this year and is expected to return in 2019. The 2015 edition of the contest was held in Plzeň, in the Czech Republic and was won by Poland's Viktoria Nowak.

    Может быть Словения или Хорватия могли бы провести конкурс в 2017 году? report to the moderator

    Sad news, hopefully a new host broadcaster can be found in time. Any chance of a Eurovision Dance Contest revival? report to the moderator
