Mind of a champion 19/05/2020

It’s been said that necessity is the mother of invention, and that’s certainly been the case under COVID-19 isolation, with athletes around the world coming up with creative ways to train, teach and simply keep their feet moving.

As such times require adaptation, many dancers have made efforts to stay in touch with their dancing by finding ways to practise at home or outdoors.

To support these efforts, the WDSF Academy has taken the initiative to present a series of educational videos on DanceSport technique taught by some of the world’s best athletes and coaches.

A new video will be published each Tuesday on the WDSF website.

The first video is presented by magnificent partnership, both in life and on the dance floor, reigning World and European Champions in Professional Division Latin, Gabriele Goffredo - Anna Matus from Moldova.

Gabriele and Anna speak about the basic principals in Samba Whisk.

Enjoy the video and stay healthy!
