Live from Moscow

How live? The "Live from Moscow" blog on the 2011 World Standard will happen! The WDSF Communications team made up of Heidi Goetz, Helmut Roland and Ferran Castañer have booked their flights and their their rooms, but they are still waiting for pertinent information from the Russian organisers regarding access to Internet and certain other parameters that will ultimately decide over the format of the coverage.

All options remain open at this point: live stream from the venue, posting of edited clips immediately after each round, and also the uploading of clips from a location other than the venue. The latter would imply considerable delays between the rounds and the posting. We will keep you informed on what it will turn out to be.

The promo reel for the blog on the 2011 WDSF World DanceSport Championship Standard conveys what will certainly be the theme for the coverage.

"Another sparkling night that you should try not to miss. The stars will be out for the 2011 World Standard on 29 October. Be in Moscow, RUS, with our team! Follow the competition through the lenses of our cameras, be first in knowing who makes the final, who wins. Meet the couples."
