2017 GrandSlam Hong Kong 05/07/2017

Even if it could well be for the last time, the WDSF GrandSlam Series (GSS) returns to Hong Kong for the third regular leg of 2017. The Latin is scheduled on Saturday 8 July, concurrently with a national breaking competition, and the Standard on Sunday 9 July.

After it had to be moved to an alternative venue, the MacPherson Stadium in Kowloon, because of a scheduling conflict in 2016, the GSS returns to the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium on Hong Kong Island.

It is the best of all settings for DanceSport enthusiasts to enjoy the performances put in by the top couples! The excellent view from all seats pairs with good accoustics plus the charm and humour of a superb Master of Ceremony. Everything so perfect in fact that WDSF should try to persuade the Hong Kong organisers to bid for another five-year cycle!
