More from Sitges, ESP ... 08/04/2010

The 2010 edition of the D.O. World DanceSport is history … More than 1,000 couples competed over the four days in Sitges, ESP, a coastal resort 50 km south of Barcelona. The IDSF World Senior II DanceSport Championships Latin and Standard alone registered a participation of 76 and 219 couples, respectively, from 27 countries.

The other highlights were three IPDSC Professional World DanceSport Championships: two in Showdance (South American and Classic) and one in Latin. Together with the other premier events staged during D.O. World DanceSport, they were recorded for airing by television channels in Spain and abroad.

In two weeks’ time IDSF will be able to put a combined 200 minutes of streaming video on the Professional and Senior II World Championships online. Stay tuned: a new YouTube and a live streaming channel will be rolled out by IDSF soon.
