Grand Slam Results after 3 Comps

Finally the rankings for the Grand Slam are ready for publishing. All couples who have already danced at least two competitions (Pink Jukebox in London, Rendez-vous de Paris, German Open) are in this ranking – by participating in the European Championship in Berlin they have the chance to get into the final ranking.

We hope that we can welcome all couples to the European Championship. Keep in mind that the first three couples in each category will win a bottle of Champagne.

First-time competitors and showdance-in-teams-only competitors at EC 2017 in Berlin

Reduced fee for first-time competitors and showdance-in-teams-only competitors.

ESSDA 10th anniversary Grand Slam

As a 10th anniversary special we will be awarding four Grand Slam titles for same-sex dance couples in 2017!

This will be based on a combined result from the following European competitions for adult male and female couples:

– the PJ in London on 18 February
– Le Rendez-vous de Paris on 15 April
– the German Open Championships in Fürth (near Nuremberg) on 29-30 April
– the EC in Berlin on 27-29 July

A couple is eligible for a Grand Slam title if they compete in three of the four mentioned competitions.

The best three results from these competitions per couple (male/female) and event (latin/standard) will be combined by the following calculation:

– A ranking of all couples per event regardless of the class
(if a couple wins a class and also dances in a the higher class, then only the higher class will be taken into account).
– The ranking will be taken as points (1 point for the first place, 3 point for the third place e.g.) and added to make the three best results of the mentioned competitions.

The four titles (Latin/Standard Grand Slam for male and female couples) will be awarded at the European Championships 2017 in Berlin. Good luck!
