ABOUT

GLOBAL DANCE OPEN

Founded just 3 years ago during the pandemic in 2020, GDO is one of the fastest growing dance competitions. Our 2023 season saw more than more than 4000 dancers enter our qualifiers & 1,500 dancers compete at our 2023 Finals from more than 35 countries.

The driving force behind GDO has always been to provide talented artists with opportunities both recreationally & professionally, which might have otherwise passed them by. 

 

 We work with industry leaders and institutions to produce the highest quality dance competition across all genres of dance. In our last finals GDO gave out close to 600,000 euros worth of international scholarships including 3 year tuition degree scholarships and company contracts, chosen by our world renowned jury. Global Dance Open is a journey & experience you will not want to miss!

 

We are around to be industry leaders and provide equal standard and opportunities across all styles of dance.

Global Dance Open is a unique dance competition experience made up of 39 country qualifiers leading to 1 global finals.

What sets GDO apart from many other dance competitions is the opportunities and connections we bring dancers.

We firmly believe that a dance competition should be more than just about winning. We are dedicated to giving talented young dancers experiences and opportunities that are worth far more than a medal or trophy. 

Due to our close connection and networking with many directors of professional schools worldwide, we are able to ensure that all of our finals judges come from the most prestigious full time schools & institutions, bringing many scholarships & prizes with them

Styles: Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Lyrical, National/Folklore, Hip Hop & Commercial, Tap, Showdance & Musical Theatre.
