Donatas Vezelis - Lina Chatkeviciute, Lithuania

A short report on the 2013 WDSF PD World Cup in the Lithuanian capital was published earlier this week in the PD section of this website (here).

Prof Helmut Roland, who brought you the coverage on last weekend's European Latin Formation held concurrently with the World Cup in Vilnius, LTU, had the seven performances by the Show Dance finalists recorded too. Now they get uploaded to the WDSF YouTube channel DanceSport Total.

Even prior to the competition, the couples signalled to the officials that there is a definite need to continue work on the Rules for this spectacular event. An amended version of the WDSF PD Show Dance Rules will be presented to the General Meeting in Shanghai, CHN, in June.

Donatas Vezelis - Lina Chatkeviciute, LTU, perform their routine at the 2013 WDSF PD World Cup Standard Show Dance in Vilnius, LTU.
