At the press conference, Michael Wendt will be making a presentation on the Art Games dance auditions and competition and the IDO representatives will be available to answer any questions to invited guests and world-wide media from the IOC.

IDO President and Arts Games Dance Commissioner, Michael Wendt said: The Arts Games focuses on celebrating Culture and the Arts and will provide a global platform to demonstrate the excellence that exists in all cultures. We want to bring people together in a manner that inspires dignity and respect for each other?s cultures. The spirit of Olympism is about constantly striving to better one?s own best work, thereby challenging other artists and the world to achieve ever greater successes. The opportunity of being part of the Art Games will bring the IDO into the forefront of the world of sport. We are delighted to be able to be part of such a prestigious event and associated with the IOC.
