WORLD DANCESPORT GRANDSLAM SERIES
Part 2 Latin Series – The Showdown in Shanghai

 

The world’s best dancers compete for prestigious titles and prize money. This series covers both the Latin and Standard competitions of the last two regular legs of the series, held in Stuttgart, Germany, and Moscow, Russia respectively, plus the GrandSlam Finals in Shanghai. Dance legend Peter Maxwell hosts the series.

 

The GrandSlam competition uses a revolutionary judging system where the judges no longer compare one couple with the others on the dance floor. Rather, they focus on each couple individually and award points on an absolute scale for the quality of dancing. Combining athleticism and artistry, the 12 best dance couples perform Latin and Standard styles of dance, from the samba, cha cha cha, rumba and paso doble to the waltz, tango, slow foxtrot and quickstep.
