Live from Ostrava!!! 27/09/2011

Where Stars Are Born! 73 couples representing 42 WDSF Member Bodies enter Saturday's World Youth Latin in Ostrava, CZE. That is down slightly from 2010 Linz, AUT, when 79 couples and a few more nations had entered. But there is still time for some late entries to make it to the floor of the CEZ Arena on Saturday 1 October.

A WDSF Communications team will be on location too. It will to try bring you all the action on the World Youth Latin (Saturday) and on the Grand Slam Latin (Sunday) live ... or in "nearly real time" ... on the "Live from Ostrava!!!" blog - as well as on the WDSF YouTube channel DanceSport Total.

Prof Dr Helmut Roland, another member of the team, travels to Saint Petersburg, RUS, to report from the Grand Slam Standard held there on Saturday, 1 October, within the Nevskiy Cup. You will be able to follow this competition on the "Live from Ostrava!!!" blog too. So there should be plenty of reasons for everyone to return to this website many times over the weekend. As was the case for the World Latin coverage from Singapore already, the "Live from Ostrava!!!" blog will also go up on the homepage.
