PBS Ballroom Dancing is back! America’s Ballroom Challenge

The legendary PBS coverage is back this year on America’s Ballroom Challenge.  It is airing on PBS in 3 parts on Fridays, April 24, May 1 and May 8, each at 9:00 pm.

It was filmed last November at the Ohio Star Ball, one of the world’s largest ballroom competitions, organized by Sam Sodano, long time coach with Arthur Murray International.

America’s Ballroom Challenge features all 4 of the styles of ballroom dancing, American Style Smooth and Rhythm and International Style Standard and Latin with the competitors at the highest levels in current professional ballroom competition placements.

Featured will be the finals derived from the many rounds of competition from hundreds of couples over several days that have been distilled down to the 6 finalists in each division.  Also featured will be the showdance competition where each couple will present a dance to their own music and compete for placement in that category.
