DanceSport at the East Asian Games 2009

30 couples from 5 different east Asian countries entered in the todays competition. The format was completely different to whar we are used to in IDSF competitions. During the day there were held competitions in single dances. That means : e.g. English Waltz, all couples – this time there had only been a 6 couples final- danced a group dance for 1 min 10 sec., then each couple did a solo performence in English Waltz for 1 min. After this again an English Waltz was danced in a group for 1min 10 sec. This procedure was done in every Standard and in every Latin dance. So in the end there were many price presentations, many gold, silver and bronce medals.

In the evening session there were held 5 dance competitions in Standard and Latin. The winners in both events came from Japan. Standard winners were Ishihara Masayuki and Kubo Ayami, who recently took part in the World Cup Standard in Vienna as reptresentatives of the Japanese DanceSport Federation.

Latin winners were Kubota Yumiya and Kubota Rara, Japan as well.

The organisation was in the hands of the Hong Kong DanceSport Association, Chairman Mr. George YIP. They provided best conditions for the couples, perfect schedule and great atmosphere in the Star Hall, Hong Kong International Trade and Exhibition Centre.

The victory ceremony was a bit different to what we are normally used to – the athletes came in their track suit.
