Just as their adult counterparts at the European in Marseille, FRA, 66 Junior II couples put in some outstanding performances at the 2011 IDSF World DanceSport Championship Latin in Moscow, RUS.

In the two concurrent championships, the level of dancing seemed to be exceptionally high. Visitors to this website were able to appreciate that through the "Live from Marseille" blog already. With some 60,000 videos viewed there over the past few days, the European Latin was - and continues to be - watched at record levels around the world.

The Russian organisers, too, had a video production linked to YouTube during the World Junior II Latin at the Crocus Expo. 15 clips are available from the Moscow Dance channel. Two of the clips - showing the 2011 World Champions Latin Leonid Tishkin and Catherine Sharanova, RUS, in the Rumba and the Jive - can be watched right here.
