By offering the opportunity for dancers to compete virtually as well as live we are able attract the most talented dancers from all over the world, making it accessible to all, no matter of where they come from.

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.
