What is Dancesport?


Ballroom dance competitions are known as dancesport competitions. They are athletic and artistic endeavors, where couples compete against other couples in their proficiency level, age, and dance style.

What is Pro/Am Competition?


Pro/Am stands for Professional with Amateur (student). Their are 2 types of  Pro/Am teams: lady professional with gentlemen amateur &  gentlemen professional with lady amateur. Some dancesport events will separate the 2 types of pro/am teams for competition, and others will combine the 2 types so the gentlemen and lady amateur will compete directly against each other.
