The 2013 WDSF GrandSlam Latin went underway earlier this morning with the first group of 161 couples dancing round one. In the early afternoon a second group of 143 couples danced their first round. And by now, at just before 5 p.m., the second round is in full swing.
41 couples have been able to benefit from their star ratings and will only now or in round three join in the action.
345 couples dancing this GrandSlam leg tops last year's record participation (315).
