The two solo dances were the Rumba and the Paso Doble. The audience expressed its appreciation of the performances with lots of spontaneous applause.

The bronze medal went to Anrey Zaitsev and Anna Kuzminskaya, RUS, ahead of Martino Zanibellato and Michelle Abildtrup, DEN, who narrowly failed to make the winners' rostrum but received the loudest applause from the audience.

2. Zoran Plohl/Tatsiana Lahvinovich, Croatia
3. Andrey Zaitsev/Anna Kuzminskaya, Russia
