Season's Greetings 20/12/2018

In competitions, we have seen some reigning champions mastering the events in an impressive way. We have seen some new champions making their way to the top, step by step. We have seen some newcomers that will soon stand up and have their say on the dance floor. Young, and old, and everyone in between, all enjoying the sport as a big community, supporting each other and sharing the moments which will remain in their hearts for the rest of their lives.

DanceSport premiered in the Youth Olympics and made it to the Big League within all sports. Young, talented athletes wow’d the Buenos Aires crowd and made a statement which will be lasting for a long time. Only time will tell what the premiere as part of the Olympic family will bring for DanceSport – and, what DanceSport will bring for the Olympic family!

DanceSport experienced a change of presidency as Mr. Lukas Hinder stepped down and handed over the position to Mr. Shawn Tay.

And there were more. Many wonderful and memorable moments and stories have been filling the pages of a book called 2018. Now, it is time to take it easy, have a little rest and load the batteries for 2019. A whole another year, whole another possibilities, whole another challenges.

Season’s greetings to all friends of DanceSport! Happy and Successful New Year!

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
