Found yourself dancing in front of the television for hours on end these past few years and feel you have what it takes to be the best “Just Dancer” in Australia? Ubisoft Australia have today announced that they will be hosting the first Australian Just Dance Championship as part of Ubisoft’s global quest to find the Just Dance Electronic Sport World Champion.
The championship will be held over two levels, the first being state qualifiers and the second being the Australian finals which will be held at the EB Games Expo in early-October 2014. Details on both stages can be found below:
Stage 1 – State Qualifications
3 qualification competitions will take place in Australia with the top 2 “Just Dancers” from each state qualifying to compete in the Australian Final to be held at EB EXPO on October 5th, 2014. The qualification dance offs will be held on the following dates at the following locations:
14th September 2014

The two best dancers from each state will receive a return flight for one to Sydney and one nights’ accommodation to compete at the Australian Final at the EB Games Expo.

We are extremely excited to have Australia chosen to host a local Just Dance ESWC qualification event. The opportunity to send a Just Dance player from Australia to compete on a global scale is something we had to be a part of and we are really glad that we get to do this for our local Just Dance community
