DanceSport In Chinese Media 12/12/2010

Chinese DanceSport gold at Asian Games © 2010 Asian Games

Chinese media are stepping up their efforts to cover DanceSport. CCTV broadcast several tournaments throughout the year and aired background stories on the sport and the athletes.

Some samples are found here and here!

From CCTV came this post-Asian Games report ...

For now, China's best will have to be happy with the stage they have... and under the spotlight in Guanzhou, they shone. In DanceSport's first appearance at an Asian Games...10 gold medals were handed out in various disciplines...and the host nation went 10 for 10.

Fan Wenbo, China Jive Gold Medallist, said,

"Our success is not a fairy tale. It is attributed to our efforts every step of the way."

China Jive Gold Medallist Chen Shiyao said,

"I think our achievement consolidates China's position in the field of DanceSport in Asia and the world. Thanks to the success of the Asian Games, I think more and more professional and amateur dancers will plunge into the sport and make a contribution."

And with a growing base...that may just be the case. China has become a hot bed for competitive dance, with an estimated 3 million people taking part in various traditional styles. And it was a packed and educated crowd on hand witnessing their hot-stepping heroes.

Dancesport spectator said,

"I think the Chinese dancers music and costumes are very beautiful. And their teamwork was perfect."

"They did very well to bring this honour to China."
