2012 European Standard

Thanks for Your Understanding! 28/04/2012

Single Fighter To some extent, it was anticipated: the WDSF Communications team will not be able to bring you the video content from the Oberwerth Sports Hall in the timely manner that it had hoped for.

We mentioned in a post yesterday that circumstances ...

... reduced the deployment of forces to the "single fighter" ... Prof Helmut Roland will be alone at the Oberwerth Sports Hall ... 

Thanks for your understanding if the coverage on the 2012 European Standard should be a little less and slower than usual!

With only one team member on location in Koblenz, it has now become a matter of assigning priority to the recording of the next three rounds. While we will still publish results immediately after each round, we will have to wait with the uploading of videos until after the final. Thanks for your understanding!

2012 European Standard | Team Denmark Today 28/04/2012

After we have resorted to archived footage (from the Tokyo GrandSlam) for the comments by Emanuel Valeri - Tania Kehlet, DEN, in the first clip yesterday, here we have them TODAY at the hotel, about to leave for round one of the 2012 WDSF European DanceSport Championship Standard ... Tension is building!

At the Oberwerth Sports Hall ... 28/04/2012

Oberwerth Sports Hall
 

Another panoramic view, this time it is of the venue for today's European Standard: the Oberwerth Sports Hall. Dancing is in progrees there, and we will soon find out what it looks like now, after people have put in some hard work since yesterday.

http://www.facebook.com/em2012koblenz On the organisers' facebook page we found some photographs of how it presented itself in the afternoon of 27 April.

The appropriate comment: "Even if it doesn't look like it, we will dance here tomorrow!"

No we wait for Helmut Roland's first batch of pictures to come in to get full confirmation.

 

 

2011 European Standard: Think About Germany! 27/04/2012

Emanuel Valeri - Tania Kehlet, DEN, started thinking about Koblenz, Germany, on 11 March, the day they came in second to Benedetto and Claudia in the GrandSlam Tokyo. And their gold medal won at last year's World Standard in Moscow is again safely left at home ... Another teaser for the 2012 WDSF European DanceSport Championship Standard!
