Celebrity Guest Judges – World Dance Competition

Dance Events Blogger

Since the beginning of World Dance Competition at Walt Disney World®, we have always had a judging panel of celebrity guests, professional choreographers, and Disney Talent/Entertainment Directors to ensure the highest level of expertise. The intermediate and advanced dancers with the highest scores from this panel will earn a spot in the Finals. This presentation will be held at the Theater of the Stars in Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, a venue known for its production of Beauty and the Beast.

We are thrilled to also announce that none other than the renowned Pasha Pashkov and Daniella Karagach from Dancing with the Stars will be joining us in Walt Disney World® to adjudicate the Finals for your performers.

The sensational pair joined the Dancing with the Stars cast in 2019 and have since become household names. Currently in its 32nd season, Pasha is wowing audiences with his partner Ariana Madix while Daniella is setting fire to the stage with the talented Jason Mraz.

But there’s more to this dynamic duo than just their impressive dance moves! Pasha and Daniella have been inseparable since they tied the knot in 2014 and their love story blossomed further with the recent arrival of their adorable baby girl, Nikitia. Before they became the power couple we adore, they conquered the world of dance together by winning numerous international competitions and becoming seven-time United States 10-Dance Competition Champions. In fact, they are the first couple in four decades to represent the US in all four dance styles at the World Championships.

We are so excited to have them join us and hope you look forward to meeting them!
