Get ready, Vancouver – the world’s top ballroom dancers will be competing for the title of World Cup and World Under 21 Champions at this fall’s Snowball Classic, hosted by DanceSport BC.

And it’s going to be a nail biter.

Like the FIFA World Cup for Soccer, or the Olympics for athletics; the Snowball Classic is a competitive ballroom dancing event that attracts top-level dancers from across the globe. Encompassing dances originating from Europe and Latin America such as the waltz, tango, and rumba; local and global dancers will be putting on a show like no other and we want you to be part of the action.

You and a friend could win free tickets on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8 to watch the event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

But just so you aren’t completely in the dark, you can watch Canada’s very own Under 21 Champions, Winson Tam and Anastasia Novikova, dance a show-stopping performance in the video below. Did we mention they’ll also be competing in Vancouver at the Snowball Classic?
