Everyone who had the privilege to be at the Ditan Gymnasium in Beijing, CHN, on either 24 or 25 September seems to agree: sights, sounds and the dancing were out of this world.

The organisers and the crew operating the Judging System at the World Freestyle have forwarded many more photos and the first videos of the performances in Latin. The latter will be uploaded to this site and to the WDSF YouTube channel DanceSport Total. The reformatting of the clips will take some time, and viewers need to be aware that they were recorded for judging purposes primarily. In any case, WDSF Secretary General Shawn Tay will also try to secure the multi-camera footage that was recorded for the screen and for a broadcast that airs on CCTV across China tomorrow.
