Bye, Bye Kaohsiung! 21/09/2013

Kaohsiung, 20 September, Helmut Roland The last day of the World DanceSport Games 2013 Kaohsiung was also the longest. Eight consecutive hours of competition were followed by the two hours of the closing ceremony that saw the athletes take centre stage one more time.

The performances by all the champions of the inaugural edition of the WDSG 2013 were the mainstay of the spectacular closing act.

In their speeches, both Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu and WDSF President Carlos Freitag qualified the inaugural edition of the games a great success. Indeed, over five days, the WDSG 2013 demonstrated that this sport is as diverse as the music it is danced to, and that DanceSport has found a formidable ally in getting this very message out to the world ... Thank you, Kaohsiung!

The section of this website that is dedicated to the WDSG 2013 will remain active for quite some time to come. Their story is far from being told yet. Go to the section by clicking here.
