Chengdu DanceSport Festival This year's focus of the Chengdu DanceSport Festival is on youth with the 2013 World Youth Latin as well as the Chinese Championships both Standard and Latin in Juvenile, Junior and Youth age groups. 

Once more, well over 2,000 participants will be involved in the competitions staged over several days at the he Shuangliu Sports Centre. Two WDSF World Opens are also scheduled: Standard on 13 and Latin on 14 July!

Live from Chengdu, CHN ... The Blog!

The WDSF Communications team will put its focus on the World Youth Latin tomorrow, 13 July, and report from the championship venue as close to real-time as the conditions there will allow for. One factor that will need to be considered: YouTube is blocked in mainland China and videos will need to get relayed through another country to get uploaded there and here.
