WDSF Communications has recently received excellent video footage of the International Open Latin and Standard that took place in Tallinn in April. A perfect time to upload it on the WDSF DanceSport Total channel, as many/most of the couples who danced in the Estonian capital will undoubtedly be in Stuttgart too.
One is getting the top billing! 2010 World Champions Standard Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Koehler, GER, will try to accomplish what no other couple was able to do so far in Stuttgart: win their third consecutive Grand Slam title there. Watch the current world # 1 and some of the other favourites as they performed in Tallinn ... We do apologise for the slightly varying audio levels in both videos.
The Grand Slam Latin stands to pre-empt the upcoming World Championships in Singapore somewhat. Of the 20 top couples in the WDSF World Ranking 19 (!) are in Stuttgart for the Grand Slam. Latin world # 1 Zoran Plohl and Tatsian Lahvinovich will try to reverse the order of standings at the last Grand Slam leg in Chengdu, CHN. There they came in second to Italians Aniello Langella and Khrystyna Moshenska. Watch both couples dance in Tallinn.
