Global Dancesport Series

What is the Global Dancesport Series?
The Global DanceSport Series was Started in 2000 by 5 Pro-Am teachers running 4 events, whose sole purpose was to direct the benefits to the Pro-Am teachers and their students. The Global DanceSport Series began offering the highest Pro-Am prize money in the open divisions and starting scholarships in the bronze and silver levels, all the while keeping the package costs lower for the students. The Global events started giving Pro-Am parties in addition to the traditional Pro Party. The Mission was to ask what Pro-Am students and teachers wanted and structure events to that end.

The Global Group recognizes that the Pro-Am competitors are the primary reason we have some many wonderful dance competitions. The "GLOBAL MISSION" is a focus on how to better serve the Pro-Am student teacher teams. You are not just another number at a Global Event! Global events were some of the first in the country to literally "roll out the red carpet" for students and pro/am teachers. Global year end recognition for teachers and students!
