Avatar Ostrava, Czech Dance Open 2009

IDSF International Open Standard and Latin

   

The annual IDSF Ranking tournament in Ostrava took place in the JEZ Arena.

It was really a special event. All the qualifying rounds were danced during the day. For the Evening Gala only Semifinal and Final have been televised together with a great show, highest technical equipment in a 2 hours program. The organizer, Mr. Frantisek Davidek, again gave this special atmosphere in presenting the Harley Davidson machines, bringing the finalist couples to the floor. He did all efforts to prove that Ostrava is well prepared to organize the IDSF European Championship Latin 2010.

Winners of the IDSF Latin event were Alexey Silde and Anna Firstova,RUS, clearly and outstanding.

The IDSF Standard winners on Sunday were Donatas Vezelis and Lina Chatkeviciute, LIT.
