WDSF Final Grand Slam in Shanghai China

Report by Renata Shvarts

Every December for the past 5 years Shanghai graciously hosts the grandest and the most prestigious WDSF event in the world.

"Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor." 

The Final Grand Slam invites the top 12 couples based on their performance scores through the year at the other 5 Grand Slam events.  In 2013 the 5 countries that had the honor of hosting Grand Slam competitions were: Spain, Hong Kong, Germany, Beijing and Moscow.  The biggest difference between Grand Slam events and traditional competitions is the judging system.  Created especially for Grand Slams, this system strives to take subjectivity out of judging. It is modeled after the system used in judging figure skating.  The vision is of course is to perfect it in order to, one day, use it in The Olympic Games.
