World Dancesport Grandslam Series



The World Dancesport Grandslam Series features the world’s best dancers as they compete for the most prestigious titles in the world of dance. The series travels to Helsinki, Wuhan, Hong Kong, Moscow and Stuttgart for the Latin and Standard dance competitions. From the results in those cities, the top 12 couples are followed to the GrandSlam Finals in Shanghai, China.

Produced by the World DanceSport Federation and hosted by veteran dancer and coach Peter Maxwell, each episode provides viewers with an up-close-and-personal look at the contestants as they waltz, tango, slow foxtrot and quickstep in the Standard competition; and cha-cha-cha, samba, rumba, paso doble and jive in the Latin competition. Evaluating each team on both their technical prowess and artistry, GrandSlam competition judges break with tradition by employing a revolutionary system where dance pairs are judged by the quality of their performance, rather than compared to other couples on the dance floor.

Marigold Media Group is thrilled to bring this gorgeous and dynamic series to public television stations around the country.

  • Premieres on public television stations starting September 6, 2016 (check local listings).
  • Produced by the World DanceSport Federation and distributed by American Public Television (APT).
