QUALIFIERS

Global Dance Open is a global championship dance competition built on a series of first round national qualifiers that lead to the international finals being held in Portugal in 2022.

 

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.

Global Dance Open is a journey you will not want to miss.
