Taipei Arena will be hosting a major ballroom dance competition on March 30. The 2024 King’s Cup Taipei Open to the World is expected to see more than 800 participants from 30 countries including the U.S., Canada, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The world’s 24 top-ranked professional dancers will be among the competitors this year, as well as modern dance champions and Latin dance stars. Let’s hear from the organizers.

We have invited the globe’s elite dancers. For example, the top two dancers in the world will come to the Taipei Arena to perform and compete. That is the biggest highlight.

It can put Taipei and Taiwan on the map. With everyone’s efforts and the work of the organizers, we hope the event will be held at the Taipei Dome in the future. We will provide all the assistance and encouragement we can so that ballroom dancing can take root and grow.

The Taiwan Dancesport Development Association says it hopes to hold the tournament at the new Taipei Dome one day, so that ballroom dance can attract as much attention as baseball. The Taipei Department of Sports says it is happy to host high-calibre competitions in the capital, adding that the event could help local dancers hone their skills.
