Elegance and Dynamics 19/06/2012

Helmut Roland

What Helmut's long and distinguished service for DanceSport and its governing body consists of is best reflected right here, on the WDSF website.

Over the past two years, 90% of the photography going up here and included in other WDSF publications are his personal views on dance as sport.

"My passion is to take pictures and videos where you can feel the elegance and the dynamics of DanceSport."

Prof Roland is a renowned financial expert who teaches at a private university in Goettingen, GER, and who runs his own consultancy firm and rating agency from Switzerland.

Despite of his many professional obligations, Helmut has managed to cover 14 premier DanceSport competitions around the world in the course of 2011 alone. On location for World and European Championship together with the WDSF Communications team, he has worked tirelessly to bring you outstandingt pictures and videos through our "Live from ...." blogs and the Gallery.

WDSF President Carlos Freitag prsented the WDSF Long and Distinguished Service Award to Helmut on the occasion of the 2012 General Meeting in Berlin.
