The Star Dance Tour combines the couples’ scores from a group of attended competitions. There are two types of competitions available: Official and Points Only (with no solos). You can learn more by reading the Rules. The Star Dance Tour also gives the audience a voice by including an “audience vote” , which counts towards the grand total. All the Star Dance Tour events that include the solo performances will be streamed live online, so the audience includes thousands of dance enthusiasts watching in their own homes. This is a huge increase in the usual live audience of a dance competition, so tell all your friends to vote for you!
This year the Star Dance Tour will be in the Latin and Smooth styles.
