Andrés Botero © COLDEPORTESIn an interview with the Colombian newspaper El Heraldo, Andrés Botero, the State Secretary for Sports and a member of the IOC, singled out DanceSport from among the 30+ that featured on the programme of The World Games 2013 in Cali, COL.

Asked what competition he enjoyed the most during the multi-sport event, Botero made flattering remarks about DanceSport staged on 27 and 28 July at the Cali bullfighting ring. Full interview here!

It was something spectacular, something never seen in Colombia or in South America: watching the best dancers in the world compete in the Waltzes, the Tango, ... the Salsa! Beautiful! And that we were able to sell out the Cali bullring with DanceSport - something that had not happened in the last 17 years! That was the most spectacular event for me ...
