The term "Junior" refers to the age level rather than the skill level. Therefore, some of the skaters competing have competed nationally and internationally at the senior level, but are still age-eligible for World Juniors.

The 2007 competition took place in Oberstdorf, Germany from 26 February to 4 March.

The compulsory dance was the Silver Samba.[1]
