Carnivalesque DanceSport 03/04/2014

Carnivalesque DanceSport? Yes, and it is serious business in Germany, in a country where the carnival is also taken very seriously ...

Even if 'die närrischen Tage' (the foolish days) are long over, carnival seems to perdure a little while longer in Germany.

The German Championship in Carnivalesque DanceSport (sic) took place over the past weekend in Erfurt. 2,500 dancers contested the titles dancing as "guards" (groups), as couples or as soloists.
