2014 Forum | WDSG 2013 Documentary 19/06/2014

Pedro Toro With a duration of just over one hour, "Do your dance," the documentary on the inaugural edition of the 2013 WDSF World DanceSport Games Kaohsiung, had the audience with the eyes glued to one of the two screens set up in the Nicolae Iorga Hall of the Romanian Parliament building in Bucharest.

As was the case in Hong Kong two weeks earlier, the applause was persistent when the screens turned black after the final credits. Unfortunately, Pedro Toro, the director, was not able to be present in Bucharest to receive the audience's praise. It has been relayed to him since.

The documentary will now get distributed by the World DanceSport Federation to broadcasters around the world. The National Member Bodies are encouraged to assist  in establishing contact with TV channels in their countries. 

In due time, most likely by mid 2015, it will become available for online viewing too.
