â€œWe’re very excited to launch the new championship title for professional dancers of American Ballroom, said Cassandra Schneider, co-organizer of the NDCA Sanctioned 44th Grand National Dancesport Championships.â€Ours is the only Sanctioned Championship Ballroom Dance competition held in South Florida.”
The popularity of television shows like â€œDancing with the Starsâ€ and “So You Think You Can Dance” proves that ballroom dance has captured the passionate attention and the hearts of millions. The Grand National Championships, which hosts many of the top dancers in the U.S., is world famous for its exciting dance shows and hospitality.
Running the Miami event for the twelfth year, Cassandra and Peter Schneider–themselves world-class dancers, judges and promoters–expect more than 200 competitors this year. The Grand Nationalâ€™s judges include World Championship class adjudicators from Great Britain, Australia, Germany, Russia and the USA.
Ballroom dancing is considered both a fine art and a sport. Contestants come from all walks of life, and range from 6 to over 90 years of age. Many older dancers enjoy this discipline for health reasons as well as for the pure joy of dancing. This yearâ€™s dancers will compete in one or more events featuring various dances.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
