Looking Back ... 17/05/2011

And the audience was a global one indeed.

“… The live feed did not pause due to buffering, even when changing to full screen mode. A truly remarkable and successful endeavour accomplished by the Polish organisers, trail-blazing along with IDSF to make Dancesport accessible to all. IDSF put up informal reports along with official results on Their amazing new website along with their tech-savvy crew continue their successful campaign that is proliferating DanceSport around the world.”
