In addition to some of the world's top competitors, attendees can look forward to a dazzling Show of Shows performance to be held both Friday and Saturday evening. The Show of Shows will be crafted by former U.S. ProAm champion Pamela Bolling and feature the newly crowned Blackpool Professional Ballroom champions Victor Fung and Anastasia Muravyeva as well as world-famous international ballroom superstars Karina Smirnoff and Slavik Kryklyvyy.

The competition will host some of DanceSport's top adjudicators, including Ana Llorente from Cuba; Rufus Dustin, also know as the "Godfather;" and former U.S. champion Marianne Nicole. Competitors range from age 4 all the way to age 100 and will compete in the youth, amateur, Pro/Am, and professional divisions. For a look at the tentative schedule, visit here.

Possibly the juiciest part of the competition will happen in the Professional Latin division, as Andra Vaidilaite and Nino Langella go head to head against Troels Bager and Ina Jeliazkova in what is sure to be a close battle for the trophy on Friday night.
