The final, edited, Full HD programmes without any breaks or technical flaws are now available:
2018 WDSF GrandSlam Series Final Latin
2018 WDSF GrandSlam Series Final Standard
Just like before, six couples proceed to the final. From there on The Final Showdown will begin.
Two couples at a time will share the dancefloor. They will push and challenge each other to perform better, to show the ultimate maximum, to rise to the next level… The crowd will be able to focus better on every couple’s performance.
How does it work?
The heats will be drawed so that each finalist couple will face each of the five fellow couples once. After the draw everybody will know which couples will share the dance floor in which dance.
Five dances and six couples, 1-on-1 on the dance floor. Three heats per dance, total of 15 dances. At the end of each dance a double Kiss & Cry.
It is the Showdown in Shanghai!
The long journey, which started in Bucharest (ROU), travelled to Taipei City (TPE), had some sunshine in Rimini (ITA), some memorable moments in Stuttgart (GER), and gave the last chance in Moscow (RUS) is now coming to an end in Shanghai (CHN). The couples have been enjoying on the dancefloor all year, pushing each other to the next level, and this is the last time in 2019 where they meet on the same floor. The last chapter on the journal of the 2019 WDSF GrandSlam Series will be written during the next weekend.
The events around the Series Final will start already on Friday with the Red Carpet. The glamorous entrance and introduction for the public in the city centre has always been catching the journalists' eyes and lenses of their cameras, and this year will not make an exception.
