The traditional annual competition took place last weekend in Warsaw. This time in the brandnew Hilton Hotel Warsaw, which provided very good conditions for the couples and officials.
The organizers, Mr. Marek Chojnacki and his team, together with the dance club CONTRA and their sponsor CIN&CIN took all efforts to create a rather elegant atmosphere.
The main events were the IDSF International Open Standard, IDSF Open Latin and IDSF Sen I Standard.
64 couples out of 14 nations entered the Standard competitions The very clear winners Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Köhler/GER gave a very good performance, very much applauded by the audience.
