Galashow s Latinou 14/10/2013

Ostrava, CZE - 12 October © Roland Czech public broadcaster CESKA TV had aired programmes featuring DanceSport on a Saturday night and in the best time slot (8 p.m.) on several occasions in the past.

Under its established label "Galashow s Latinou" CESKA aired another such programme on Saturday 12 October.

This time it was not a Gala with show performances by invited couples but a real WDSF PD World Championship that made up the bulk of the 80-minute programme. Innovative was certainly the way the six finalists were called up in the order of placing, and with all of them performing a dance of honour.

Watch the programme here!
