And Our Comment On Your Comments

You have been more active than ever in commenting on our posts here as well as on the videos that went up on DanceSport Total, our YouTube channel.

There were some comments that had to be removed for the simple reason that they did not comply with our basic rules (no foul language, no insults). There were others made by visitors who had an opinion different from that of the majority of the nine WDSF Adjudicators. Of those, some were rather impolite, even going towards offensive ... But we left them anyhow. Of all the comments we had to monitor over the past five days (close to 2,000), the best one (we think) was left by shadypinesmusic on YouTube.

nino & krystina: phenomenal and intense

andrey & anna: fierce and fast

martino & michelle: theatrical and expressive

gabriele & anna: artistic and different

timur & ekaterina: slick and hot

marius & nina: fresh and great characteristics

Encore 12/04/2012

Finally: The Final Reel | Part I 11/04/2012

2012 European Latin © RolandIt has taken time to have this edition of The Final Reel compiled. But all of us at WDSF Communications believe that it was worth the effort. As we are reading through your many comments on the adjudicating, the novel way of incorporating the results into these reels could help for a better understanding of the process.

Coming Soon: The Final Reel 11/04/2012

2012 European Latin © Roland"Live from Cambrils" registered the highest traffic of any blog so far. The same goes for DanceSport Total, the WDSF YouTube channel. The previous standout was the "Live from Singapore" coverage on the 2011 World Latin.

And the best is still to come: THE FINAL REEL(s) with the decisive stages of the 2012 European Latin are nearly ready and should go up here later today.

Obviously, this championship had all the right ingredients to make for compelling viewing. Great dancing, charismatic couples, suspense - plus a very "Latin" atmosphere at the venue. In the three Final Reels we tried to capture them all and to add essential information as well ... To tie our visitors over until the reels are available here, we have added Prof Helmut Roland's angle on the group Paso Doble. Enjoy!

WDSF Communications thanks the visitors to this blog, to the YouTube channel - as well as to the WDSF facebook and twitter - for following this championship in record numbers.
