You don't want to miss a beat

In 1945 an event had humble beginnings at Melbourne Town Hall, then known as Competitive Ballroom Dancing. Now entering its 70th year, the premier DanceSport event in Australia remains one of the key events on the international circuit. This glamorous and exciting leisure activity has been renamed to suit its modern image as a demanding sport. Its characteristics consist of physical strength, agility, co-ordination, stamina, high level of fitness, discipline, teamwork, grace, style and musical interpretation. It is now recognised by the International Olympic Committee as a sport, and is expected to eventually be included in the Olympic program. It was featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

DanceSport provides opportunity for developing athletic discipline of body and mind and as well as artistic creativity through musical interpretation, costume design and choreographic programming.

Athletes from over 20 countries will travel to Australia this year to take part in this annual event that provides Australian athletes with the opportunity to compete against some of the world's best on home soil.

The DanceSport Showcase will feature World Professional Latin Super Star couple Stefano and Dasha Di Filippo. Stefano won his world title here in Australia in 2008, in what he described as one of his most memorable experiences of his career.

A Spectacular opening starring some of your Dancing with the Stars favourites will be featured on Sunday evening at the Grand finals DanceSport Showcase. Australia's top Latin couples will perform, and a full floor show from Stefano and Dasha will spice up a hot program incorporating the Junior Open, Youth Open, Professional Open, Masters 1 Open, Australian Closed Standard and the WDSF International Open Latin.

Experience the Glitz and Glamour as the stars of DanceSport kick up their heels at the annual 70th Australian DanceSport Championship. The legacy continues in this anniversary year, and ignites a new beginning with the champions of tomorrow with the champions of the past on a floor steeped with tradition.
