This year's Championships will be broadcast simultaneously on live-broadcasting platforms like Huya, Bilibili, Douyin, and WeChat video channels, and will be rebroadcast by Italian media.
Launched in 2016, this competition has become a platform to showcase Chinese arts and culture, and to exchange dance culture with Latin-speaking countries.
It will become a new "calling card" for the Hengqin Cooperation Zone, according to the Championships' sponsor. Through digital communication channels, Chinese dance culture can be seen from an international stage, further enhancing the communication between China and other countries and regions. It will show the charm of Chinese culture and the spirit of Chinese people in the new era.
