In ballroom dance, there is only one goal – to win and to be the best.
Each episode features three fiercely passionate dancers and their pros as they strive to achieve perfection in the pursuit of the coveted first place medal in highly competitive national competitions. While they come from every conceivable background and age group, every dancer has several mutual characteristics: an intensely competitive spirit, incredible tenacity, and an all-encompassing desire to win.
To some, the cost of being the best ballroom dancer has no price tag – they will pay whatever it costs to dance with the best pros, wear the best costumes, and have the best hair and makeup artists at their disposal. While others must take a more practical approach to the ballroom lifestyle, even if that means working multiple jobs, or selling off their own personal items in order to compete. Despite one’s background, once these dancers set foot on the dance floor, they have one common goal – to battle it out and reign victorious. BALLROOM BLITZ is produced by Dance Dance Dance for TLC.
Throughout the marathon, viewers will travel across the coast to the most prestigious ballroom dance competitions. The competitions featured include: Colorado Star Ball (Denver, Colorado), Millenium DanceSport Championship (Tampa, Florida) , Manhattan DanceSport Championship (New York, New York), Desert Classic DanceSport Championship (Palm Springs, California), Virginia State DanceSport Championship (Reston, Virginia) and the International Grand Ball Championship (San Francisco, California).
