Sochi, RUS - 25 February © Roland

We have tried to put today's webcast on DanceSport Total | DST, our new streaming platform. Fact is that it is so new that we ran into some insurmountable problems between encoding and delivering the stream through Vimeo. To be on the safe side, we have now abandaoned the initial plan and resorted to YouTube.

Over the next four hours, we show you the semi-final and final of the European Youth Latin as well as the last round of the European Standard Formation ... And between these highlights you'll get to enjoy showcases.

When B-Boys Meet Cossacks | Sochi 2018 25 February 2018 08:38

It was a sight to behold when the closing act to yesterday's World Cup in Acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll brought a Cossack dancing group to the floor jointly with a crew of b-boys from Sochi, RUS. It is at moments such as this one that everyone appreciates that dancing of the most varied kind is the only dancing that tells the story across all the cultural divides.

There is more of the same in store for you today!

Tomorrow's Events 24 February 2018 19:19

What we have seen on day one of the DanceSport extravaganza staged at the Ice Cube in Sochi, RUS, was breathtakingly spectacular from start to finish. Young dancers showing their best stuff in Acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll were at the core of an entertaining programme. Medals were awarded for the World Cup in Juvenile, Junior and B-Class. Ukraine swept all three in Juvenile, Russia those in the B-Class. Two Russian couples and one from Croatia made up the podium in the Junior World Cup.

Tomorrow's main events are eagerly awaited already: the 2018 European Youth Latin and the 2018 European Standard Formation will round off the up-and-close look at almost the full breadth of DanceSport. The President of the All Russian Federation of DanceSport and Acrobatic Rock 'n' Roll, Mrs Nadezhda Yerastova, can only be congratulated on putting the quality programme together. Watch the recording of today's stream and you will know what we are talking about.

Active Coaches 24 February 2018 16:32

As the final of the Youth Rock 'n' Roll World Cup comes to an end, the table of the WDSF Communication team next to the floor keeps bouncing. This is not exclusively due to the lively characteristics of this type of dance, but to the enthusiasm of the athletes’ coaches who keep cheering and dancing along on the sidelines. The whole scene makes up for the missing acrobatics! Juvenile and junior couples are prohibited from doing acrobatics.

The role of the coach, however, does not stop there. From taking selfies on the podium to receiving a trophy, they are included in every part of this competition. The reciprocal admiration between coach and trainee can be seen both on and off-stage, and it looks like fun!
