Tifosi della Danza Sportiva 15/02/2013

PD World Standard - Bassano, ITA © Roland

When it finally started on 10 February, it was not only a heated contest on the floor, it also turned into an all-out cheering battle between the supporters of two very opposing styles.

Nobody was left untouched by the superb performances of the six finalist couples dancing just before midnight. Above all the fans of couples # 40 and # 43 were the ones that expressed their emotions with high decibels: vocally and with the full instrumentarium of the 'tifosi' (Italian for ardent supporters in sports).

In the end champions were proclaimed and celebrated. And much has been commented ever since. We stay with the  comment below.


Gozzoli and Bosco are - for me - two different ways of dancing, but both are my inspiration.
