2012 World Formation Standard 23/11/2012

2012 World Formation Standard

After Braunschweig, GER, in 2011, it is now the turn of Ludwigsburg to host this year's World DanceSport Championship Formation Standard. And there is no doubt whatsoever that the organisers around Jörg Weindl will put on a similarly convincing show as the one that was covered extensively on this website a year ago (here).

WDSF Communications will again be on location with Prof Helmut Roland bringing you videos and photos of the performances by the 16 formations in the trademark "nearly real-time" mode.

These videos, however, will not be available for viewing from Germany until 26 November, after the host broadcaster SWR has aired its programme on the World Championship.

Participation in 2012 is down slightly from last year (19).
