The final round – the competitive Latin-American program of dance sport are considered in this article. A standardized scheme for all five dances were developed to create an opportunity to assess the intensity of the Latin-American competitive program; all the rules of the performance in the final were following: 1 minute and 30 seconds for each of the dancing performances, 30 seconds brakes in between the performances, the work of the referee's board. To estimate the intensity, the methods of measurement of the pulse indicators were used, which can provide the number of the heart rates during all work period. Intensity rates of the Latin-American dance sport program indicated that all the performance is followed by a high pulse rates. That means that the heart rates are fluctuated between 100 and 190 bpm, which demands hard work from the cardiovascular system. In addition, the athletes not only have no chance to get enough recover for 30 seconds brake but, otherwise, accumulate exhaustion after all. All this requires a regular assessment and monitoring, and the individual program to increase athletes’ stamina should be developed.
