"Roman's Touch" turned out to have much in common with the one of King Midas as Roman Ciflicli and Gliga Mirona, ROU, won the gold at the 2015 World Showdance Latin. Eight couples contested the final last night and all of them delighted the audience not only with great dancing but also with the strong narratives of their shows.

Second place went to Simone Casula and Laura Marras, ITA, who were "Smiling With Charlie" as they brought one of the greatest in cineastic history back to life. Fedor Poliansky and Dina Akhmetgareeva, RUS, presented an outstanding show dedicated to "Crazy Salvador Dali" this year, claiming third over an inspired "Zombie" by Lukas Bartunek - Katarina Hrstkova, CZE.

The members of the WDSF Communications team are heading for home and leave you with a considerable amount of great imagery from the three World Championships held here in Chengdu already. However, much more is still to get added over the course of this week. Come back to the blog frequently!
