During the Opening Ceremonies there was a special moment when WDSF President Mr. Lukas Hinder transferred the President's mallet as a symbol for the President of the World DanceSport Federation to Mr. Shawn Tay.
In his speech the newly declared WDSF President Mr. Tay emphasized his commitment to DanceSport with its multiple disciplines and thanked the Presidium and his family for support.
Mr. Tay presented the Honorary Life President diploma to Mr. Hinder.
At the end of the ceremony the couples returned back to the floor by surprise and greeted and showed respect for both gentlemen with loud applause.
