DSM offers 3 different packages that include hotel, breakfasts, preferred seating, program, and the VIP Cocktail Reception on Saturday. It is unclear if they include entrance to the ballroom on other days. They range from 2-4 nights and $605-$1010 per person for a double and $905-$1595 for single. Additional nights can be purchased for $320.
DM includes Professional Open competitions. It also includes a Professional Showcase which has featured couples such as Neil and Katya and Justinas and Anna K. It has been announced that 2018 will feature Arunas and Katusha. DM posts photos of scholarship winners on it’s website, which is a nice touch. DM is one of the largest pro/am events in Canada. We will be watching for information on the 2018 event and hope to be able to provide improved information for 2019.
