THE most prestigious ballroom and Latin dancing competition in Asia — The 2012 WDC World Cup and 10th China (Shenzhen) Ballroom and Latin Dancing Open — has taken the city by storm.

More than 4,000 dancers from over 30 countries participated in the four-day open championships. “Shenzhen has become China’s capital of ballroom and Latin dancing and is a place where dancers come to fulfill their dreams,” said Jia Zuoguang, honorary president of the Chinese Dancers Association, at the opening ceremony Saturday.

Andrea Ghigiarelli and Sara Andracchio from Britain beat strong competition to collect first prize in ballroom dancing. The Latin dancing team of Michael Malitowski and Joanna Leunis, also from Britain, won in their category. In terms of Chinese participants, dancers Yang Chao and Tan Yiling from Shanghai won third prize in ballroom dancing while Shenzhen dancers Zhao Liang and Sun Ning came fifth in Latin dancing.

It’s the second time in the competition’s history that a band has been invited to play live music to accompany the dancers. The music of Rolf Becker Big Band from Germany created a lively atmosphere at the competition.

Chairman of Blackpool Festival Judge Committee Marcus Hilton, who was also a judge at the competition, thinks this year’s competition augurs well for the future of ballroom and Latin dancing in China.
