The 2011 GrandSlam Finals

Latin Photos Coming In 06/12/2011

Ferran Castañer with Andrey and Anna © RolandAfter our focus over the weekend was on producing the live feed from the two Grand Slam Finals, we have recovered from the many and rather stressful hours we spent in Salou, and we are now turning to the follow-up on an outstanding event.

Prof Roland went through the thousands of photographs he took on Saturday, made a first selection and forwarded many of them to us, telling us to "select which ones to include in the Gallery". We decided to upload all of them ... Or would you be able to narrow the selection (below) down further?

At the same time, our videographer/editor Ferran Castañer (pictured above togther with the Latin Grand Slam Champions Andrey and Anna) has started to work on the clips of the final, with the idea to have all 30 solo dances in the final uploaded once more by couple. This time in HD and with the full score included as graphics and!

Last but not least, we are also working on two 52-minute highlight broadcasts of the GS Finals which will, hopefully, air on TV channels around the world.

Thanks To Sergejus! 04/12/2011

2011 WDSF World Latin Formation © Vytautas KielaitisRemember yesterday, Sergejus Makarovas, the RLS Adminstrator for Lithuania, writing to us about including information on the World Latin Formation on this blog? He forwarded results and some excellent photographs, but he wrote ...

Nobody gives me videos :(

The resourceful man he is, he recorded his own. Since many people here in Salou were rather surprised when they saw the Vilnius results - "What, only fourth?", some of them said in uttter disbelief - we post Sergejus' videos to document how the top two teams and the fourth performed last night.

We also hope that the Lithuanian DanceSport Federation will be able to forward the broadcast (that was obviously produced) to us. That way we will upload more extensive coverage on the World Latin Formation.
