In dance, American pair Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue claimed the title by winning the free dance. Ksenia Monko and Kirill Khaliavin of Russia were second while short dance winners Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam of Canada dropped to third.

The Nebelhorn Trophy was also the final qualifier for the Sochi Winter Olympics. Israel, Romania, the Philippines, Australia, Ukraine and Italy got the final six men's spots while China, Turkey, Australia, Japan and Spain will round out the field in ice dance.
