We regret to announce that we must cancel the
2020 Emerald Ball Dancesport Championships. We tried our best to hang on by changing our dates to June but the state of California is not ready for any large gatherings yet.

Thank you to all who sent in their entries, ordered tickets, and signed up for the dance congress. You have the option to receive a full refund or credit towards 2021.

We hope you all will join us next year,
April 26th – May 2nd 2021. We’ve planned so many exciting things for you to experience and can’t wait to show you! Until then stay safe, stay healthy and keep practicing!

Emerald Ball is a must see event! If you’ve never been, you must experience it at least once.

Janel Green, Lover of dance, 2018

To me this competition embodies what a major competition is all about. This will be my 29th Emerald Ball and it’s the only competition I’ve gone to every year I’ve been in America . For me, it’s run impeccably and no one sees all the craziness going on behind the scenes. Wayne and Donna are so unbelievably professional in all they do and are the reason this competition is so successful. As a competitor, you want lots of people to compete against so that winning really means something. At the Emerald, most if not all, the comps start as a first round. The Ballroom always looks fabulous and creates the atmosphere competitors like yet always in a familiar way so you know where you are . I really feel fortunate to have been able to have been both a Professional and Pro/Am competitor at this comp and now a judge . Thank you Wayne and Donna for continuing to providing this fabulous event for everyone to enjoy. I’m hoping to be able to attend for at least another 29 years.
