General Information

The Indiana Challenge is truly one of the most exciting Ballroom Competitions in the mid west. It’s the competition that has it all.

The World Pro/Am Dancesport Series

The World Pro/Am Dancesport Series is a network of over 90 Dancesport events held throughout North America that promotes their events with a highly desired reward system. The series is about giving back to you! Accumulating points is the name of the game! Points will rank you Regionally, Nationally, and get cash back to spend!

The top 20 overall students who compete in a World Pro/Am Dancesport event will each receive a Region pin along with their $100 Voucher Award, which can be used towards Pro/Am entries at any other World Pro-Am Dancesport event outside the region in which you reside.

The placements you receive in our Multi-Dance Championships will earn you points towards the largest Team Match in North America held at the Ohio Star Ball Championships in November.

All Teachers accumulate points towards the top overall teacher award ($25,000) to be presented at the Ohio Star Ball Championships.

The Best of the Best

The Best of the Best DanceSport Challenge is a yearly competition between some of the top Pro/Am couples in the country who are winners at the Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels of dance. The Best of the Best was originally started as a challenge for the Top Competitor between the Atlanta Open, Holiday Classic, and the Ohio Star Ball. The Challenge has now expanded to over 40 qualifying events held throughout the calendar year, including representatives from the Dancer’s Cup Tour, and culminating with the Grand Finale events at the Ohio Star Ball. Each qualifying event hosting a Best of the Best Challenge offers a different category, so interested competitors have their pick of several divisions in which to shine.
