  • A Mixed Gender Sport: Really?

    The World DanceSport Federation takes a long and self-critical look at itself, asking, "If we are a mixed gender sport by default, why doesn't it show when it comes the our panels of adjudicators, our commissions or the Presidium?"

32 couples represented their countries at the 2013 World Cup Latin in the Vienna-Schwechat Multiversum. This new hall, which is also the venue for the 2013 WDSF World Championship Ten Dance and the 20th Austrian Open Championships, proved to be a perfect location for such an event. 

After cancellations due to health problems of three couples in the very last moment – one of them was Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus, MDA -  and one late entry, 32 couples showed up at the competition. It was not only a bad time for some couples, three adjudicators had to cancel too - even on the competition day. So for the organisers it was thrilling up to the first round.

In the end the audience enjoyed a seven-couple final, with three top favorites for the podium and close decisions from places to 4 to 7.
