WELCOME TO GLOBAL DANCE OPEN!

 

LET´S DANCE!

 

Global Dance Open is a live online dance competition built on a series of first round national qualifiers that lead to the international championship in the second quarter of 2021.

We invite the global dance community to join the GDO to connect, create and compete at international level in front of a live audience and first-class professional adjudicators.  Dancers from all backgrounds may enter to represent their country on the world stage, to experience, compete and reach the highest rankings of the GDO Champions 2021.

We're working with industry leaders to produce an online competition that provides real value in these extraordinary times.  We're bringing international scholarships and workshops to the show, and combined with our world-class judging panel and Senergy Digital's expert media team (Club Wow), this is a journey you will not want to miss.

For dancers aged 6-24 years. Styles: Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Lyrical, National/Folklore, Hip Hop & Commercial.

Country qualifiers are taking place now and will continue until the worldwide championship in Quarter 2, 2021.
