The Duel format at 2019 WDSF PD Super GrandPrix 13/02/2019

Double kiss and cry at 2018 GS Final Shanghai

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 boost and challenge each other to perform better, to rise to the next level, and to do their best to steal the spotlight. The crowd will be able to focus on every couple’s performance.

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, one-on-one on the dance floor. Three heats per dance, total of 15 dances. At the end of each dance a double kiss & cry.

Since the Duel format had its debut in 2018 WDSF GrandSlam Final, we thought we would ask some of the couples how they felt it and what was it like to replace solo dances and group dances with a duel.
