2014 World Youth Latin | Starting List 25/10/2014

2014 Dance Accord © MelnikovaIt is again a strong statement that the National Member Bodies of the World DanceSport Federation are making by fielding 75 couples in this championship. This almost equals the participation in the World Latin Adult that was held three weeks ago in Ostrava, CZE, and proves that Latin dancing is as popular as ever. Well done!

This starting list, while lacking official character, should show who will be dancing here at the Crocus Expo shortly. The live results will go up once the redance is completed.

Good Morning Moscow | Day 2 25/10/2014

24 October - Moscow, RUS © MelnikovaIt's day two of our reporting on the WDSF events that take place in Moscow, RUS, as part of this year's Dance Accord.

The Latin couples competing in the GrandSlam have taken to to floor more than three hours ago and started with their first round. It should be completed within the hour; live results are found in the column on the right.

The 2014 World Youth Latin is scheduled to start shortly. It will run parallel with the GrandSlam Standard all afternoon right into the evening. And much later in the day the professionals will dance the first round of their GrandPrix Latin too.

Our editorial on coaches recommending their protgees not to compete at certain times and in certain places was well received here and on facebook. Add your comments too! Click here!

Coaches' Orders | An Editorial (Repeated) 24/10/2014

Judging System 2.1In virtually every sport the main function of a coach is to prepare his or her athletes in a way that they arrive optimally prepared at the competition on a determined day. As the decisive date approaches, the coach starts implementing the training regime that he or she designed to make this achievable. The number of training sessions and workouts is generally increased. The nutritional plan is adjusted. Daily routines are altered to make them compatible with the schedule on D-Day. Many things are considered – nothing is left to chance!

DanceSport is certainly no different in that respect

In many sports, a coach also looks for opportunities to enter his or her athletes in competitions during the period leading up to the targeted main event. Nothing else prepares quite the way that competition does … That’s how the friendly matches in football come about.

DanceSport is different in that respect.

With the World Championships Standard only three weeks away, this GrandSlam could have been an excellent opportunity for couples to test the waters one more time before it counts in Vienna. But quite a few are ominously absent in Moscow. “Their coaches wouldn’t let them come,” is what some insiders say. “They cannot afford a loss at this time,” is what others add.  

After the World DanceSport Federation has gone to great length in developing a system that supposedly does away with bias in the judging, it is rather disappointing to discover that some coaches seem to have very little faith in it. Why could that be? 

What is certain is that the champions in Vienna will be determined with the same system.  Maybe those who have competed here in Moscow will be at an advantage then, because this system is not only transparent and fair, it also provides feedback. And with three weeks to go, whatever scored lower than expected here could get corrected. How about that, coach?
