We are adding this "Live from Debrecen" blog to the archives together with the memories of a competition that had created a unique atmosphere. It only happens occasionally that the dancers on the floor inspire the members of the public around them to get off their chairs and to start jiving themselves. The 2018 European Latin will be remembered for that.
It will also be looked upon as a championship that had one of the highest levels of dancing across all rounds. If you look who failed to make the semi-final or what margin separated the places six and seven in the semi, you will have to concur that more dancers than ever are vying for the top places.
BTW: after the semi-final, the margin between seventh-placed Edgar Marcos - Alina Nowak, POL, and sixth-placed Guillem Pascual - Rosa Carne, ESP, was a very negligible 0.002 ... Considering this freak math, a virtual tie, and admitting seven couples to the final would have been an option.
In any case, you can take another look at the 2018 European Latin from Friday 18 May, the day we will release the Vimeo on Demand package.
The programme is made up of four parts: the full-length semi-final, interviews with the semi-finalists and finalists, the full-length final and interviews with the medallists. The quarterfinal and an in-depth interview with Andrea Silvestri - Martina Varadi, HUN, are the bonus features. Get it all for US$ 3.75 (6-month streaming period).
