Photographer Prof Dr Helmut Roland is in Moscow and ready to report on tomorrow's IDSF European Ten Dance.

Dr Roland has already sent the first pictures from the Russian capital. Among them the self-portrait! "Just to signal: I am here; and I brought my camera too," he says.

Tomorrow, throughout the day, he will attempt to provide visitors to World DanceSport Dot Org with a steady flow of information, and with his trademark photography, on the 2011 IDSF European Ten Dance.

Among the favourites in tomorrow's DANCESPORT DECATHLON: Bjoern Bitsch and Ashli Williamson, DEN. The two are shown here at last year's World Chamionship in Vienna, AUT. The picture, of course, is another © Roland!
