First World Freestyle Championships 27/09/2011

World Freestyle © That the publication of the results took a little longer than usual had much to do with the fact that the new WDSF Judging System was used to produce them. Based on points awarded in the evaluation of five Programme Components for each dance, the system was used in the finals of Grand Slam events previously.

Two of the foremost authorities in world sports - SportSccord President Hein Verbruggen and IOC Sports Director Christophe Dubi - attended the World Freestyle Championships in Beijing, CHN, and looked closely at how the WDSF Judging System was being used to produce objective results in a discipline where artistry is a particularly important factor. Verbruggen and Dubi were impressed and commended WDSF President Carlos Freitag on the advances made in the efforts to continually improve judging in DanceSport.

Videos of the inaugural World DanceSport Championships Freestyle in Beijing, CHN, should become available here and on the WDSF YouTube channel DanceSport Total within the next two to three days.
