DanceSport in Sochi 2014 01/03/2014

Sochi 2014 © IOC After hundreds of dancers casted by the Russian DanceSport Union (RUDSU) were involved in the Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics already, many of them got to repeat in the closing cermony too.

This time they brought the history of art and literature back to life. Anastasia Titkova, a RUDSU Vice President as well as choreographer and trainer of the sequences with DanceSport, was quoted in "Russia Behind the Headlines."

"Over 300 dancers took part in both of the Olympics ceremonies. The soldiers of the Peter the Great era, dancing couples at the ball, the residents of the fantasy village, the literary characters and librarians – those were all dancers we have trained, who have come from various Russian cities. It was the first time that dancesport professionals were invited to work at the Olympics. I hope that the dream of the president of the Russian Union of Dancesport, Valentin Yudashkin, to see dancesport included on the list of Olympic events will soon become a reality."
