Hall of Fame

Universal Hall of FameThe history of our fabulous Dance World is very seldom handed down to generations and it has been our experience that many of today’s competitors have no idea about the people who judge them. They actually have no knowledge whether they have danced or what they have achieved.


The “Universal Hall of Fame “ will contain the profile and history of the famous people who have moulded our profession, and each year it is the intention to add one new recipient to the “Hall of Fame”.
