A very formal gala dinner was the last in a series of events that were to precede tomorrow's (which downunder is today's) World DanceSport Championship Standard in Melbourne.
The athletes and officials together with their fabulous hosts sat down for an exquisite dinner at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins hotel.
Speeches were held and some of the participants were honoured for their contributions to the success of the 2012 World Standard ... plus the other two World Championships (2004, 2008) already staged in Australia's sporting capital.
WDSF Treasurer Tony Tilenni received an award for his meritous work for and on behalf of DanceSport in Australia. Congratulations!
