The 15th edition of DanceMasters 2018 is here: +1500 dancers, 55 referees, and 45 competitions

One of the most important international events organized in Romania, DanceMasters, takes place this year between March 30th and April 1st in Bucharest at Sala Polivalenta.

Over 1500 dancers from 26 countries are expected to compete in front of  55 referees in 45 competitions organized by age category and dance class.

Starting with 2004 every year in Bucharest the prestigious DanceMasters, an International Open dancesport tournament, gathers top dancers from all over the world. The event is one of the strongest dance competitions from Central and Eastern Europe, considering the tournament coefficient granted by the World DanceSport Federation.


2.15 coefficient for WDSF World Open Latin

2.0 coefficient for WDSF World Open Standard.

DanceMasters Competition Calendar

Friday, March 30th is fully dedicated to national competitions for beginners (and absolute beginners). Parents and grandparents will be overjoyed seeing the little dancers have a blast.  There is no doubt the sporting enthusiasm and home-grown talent is here to stay!

Saturday, March 31st and Sunday, April 1st are dedicated to both national and international competitions. From 9am until midnight, the dancers will lay down their elegant moves for Standard, their sparkling routines for Latin. Smoothness and seduction will blend in the same room.

During the breaks between the categories, the organizers have prepared special dance shows and dance moments to delight the audience. At this edition, in a moment dedicated to Titus Munteanu (a TV personality and a real supporter of the dancesport beginnings in Romania) the organizers will offer the complete amateurs (dancers who do not practice dancesport on a regular basis, within a dance club) a chance to compete in Viennese waltz.

The Gala Programs include World Top 10 dancers, the crème de la crème of competitors, and will start at 19:30. As in 2018 Romania celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Great Union Day, and the Dance Masters celebrates the 15th edition, a special show will be staged for the two Galas.

DanceMasters is guaranteed to be packed with great competition, plus an incredible atmosphere that is sure to become an unforgettable experience.

About Dance Masters

Licensed by WDSF, the event is organized under the patronage of the RDSF (Romanian DanceSport Federation). The three Organizers are Virgil GRIGORE (President of the PAS IN DOI Dance Club), Bogdan PAUN and Gigi RADUCAN (President of the PHOENIX Dance Club). But this event wouldn’t be possible without the support of volunteers, parents from dance clubs, friends, partners and sponsors. Since 2010 the team strengthened with the addition of Andreea and Dan ILIESCU (Gant & Sterling Consulting), constant supporters of DanceMasters and dancesport in general.
