Leipzig in Analysis 04/11/2013

Leipzig, GER | 2 November © Roland That the 2013 PD European Standard would be making headlines had to be expected. After all, the organisers know how the media work - and they expertly make the media work in DanceSport's favour.

However, not all observations and comments made by media representatives were favourable this time around. Some touched on the sport's dark sides that WDSF is committed to erradicate.

WDSF proper will comment on those after careful study of what had occurred in connection with this European Championship. Meanwhile, the focus should remain on the DanceSport that was able to convince through its strongest sides in Leipzig. Here are the six finalists performing the Waltz.
