Don’t miss to watch our live stream on March 10, 2017, 12.00 pm!

The PRO-AM category implies that the dancing couple consists of a professional dancer and his amateur student. This concept was created in the middle of the XX century in the USA and is gaining increasing popularity nowadays. The PRO-AM format allows everyone to truly enjoy the dance by dancing with a professional partner. The best example of this format’s success is a worldwide famous and most popular project “Dancing with the stars”. PRO-AM is booming in contemporary Europe as well. We are happy to welcome the PRO-AM dancers from all over the world and any dance organization.
