DanceSport in High Demand 02/04/2009

AvatarDanceSport makes for a record sell-out at The World Games 2009 Kaohsiung.


Just 20 minutes after ticket sales for The World Games 2009 had started in Taiwan, at noon on 1 April, all 440 floorside VIP seats to the DanceSport competitions at the Kaohsiung Arena were sold out. Even more remarkable: these were by far the most expensive of altogether 350,000 tickets to 31 sports on offer at over 4,000 7-ELEVEN convenience stores around the island.

5,000 NT$ - about 115 Euros - had to be paid per ticket to be able to watch the 68 top couples in Latin, Standard and Rock 'n' Roll from the most privileged vantage point on either 24 or 25 July.

Over 26,000 tickets for DanceSport's regular arena seating are available. They range from 400 NT$ (9 €) to 900 NT$ (20 €). And they are reported to be selling very fast too!
