Hessen tanzt continues to develop from year to year. Once again we are offering 14 world ranking tournaments. Four international decisions are on the program on Friday. Last year, DTV tournaments were offered for the first time on this day during the breaks caused by the international competitions. This was so successful that we have expanded the program this year. This will improve the double start opportunities, especially for young dancers.
On Saturday, a special highlight will be a world ranking tournament for the main group in the standard dances at 12.00 noon. On Sunday morning, the couples of the main group Latin danced for the coveted victory of this traditional tournament series.

And so, with the support of over 300 clubs and dance sport departments, we are now able to offer you, dear spectators, “total dance sport” over three days. Simultaneously, on up to eight dance floors, you, dear spectators, can experience dance tournaments of all performance classes and age groups, both in the standard and Latin American dances “live”.

More than 6000 dancers from 8 to 80 years of age from all German federal states and increasingly also from abroad take part in the tournaments.

Around 180 judges and a further 200 employees in the tournament management help to organize “Hessen tanzt”.

A tournament management team consisting of a tournament director, assessor and helpers, who sit at the front of each dance floor, ensures that everything is carried out in a sporting manner. The above-mentioned adjudicators are also part of the tournament process. They are responsible for the not always easy task of judging the couples’ performances. Five to seven judges are assigned to each floor. They classify the performances according to the following criteria:

Music – Balance – Characteristics

For you, dear spectators, there are plenty of seats available around the 1,800 square meter dance floor of the ice rink.

Please leave the passageways to the individual tournament areas clear!

And if you want to stretch your legs, you can do so on the upper walkway of the ice rink. Here you will also find interesting sales stands for dance sport equipment, cosmetics, music, etc.
