Simone Segatori - Annette Sudol

After the first press conference in September 2012 focused on the games' general nature an scope, as well as on Kaohsiung's commitment to be an outstanding host once more, the second took the presentation one step further.

Several steps, in fact! It was the athletes themselves who conveyed the games' message - "Do Your Dance in Kaohsiung" - best with their performances.

Latin, Standard, Wheelchair, Formation, Cheerleading were superbly demonstrated by dancers from Kaohsiung, Taipei and from Germany. Marius-Andrei Balan - Nina Bezzubova and had travelled to Kaohsiung after the GrandSlam Hong Kong to put the international touch on the press conference.

Speeches by Kaohsiung Deputy Mayor Li and WDSF President added the formal touch. William Lue led through the almost 90 minutes with outstanding multilinguality.

Over the coming days, WDSF Communications will monitor the take-up in the Taiwanese media.
