Last month we started with new edition of DanceSport Europe Children European Grand Prix with competition in Zagreb, Croatia and Kedainiai, Lithuania. In March we had already three competitions of that series: Brno in Czech Republic, Skopje in Macedonia and Palanga in Lithuania.
In those five competitions we had 720 young dancers representing 29 countries enjoying the dance floors across the Europe. We consider it as a very good start of the year. Especially we like that more countries are involved into our competitions.
We are looking for next events. The closest one will be run in Portoroz, Slovenia and Cambrils, Spain.
DSE will start new season very soon – February 3rd in Zagreb, Croatia and February 16th in Kedainiai, Lithuania.
As every year DSE managing Committee update the Rules of that series to be more close to WDSF changes as well as our members wishes.
You can find already the new 2019 rules version on our website under Documents and Regulations.
What did we changed?
As you can see we have more and more competitions in more countries (new countries – Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Macedonia) so we decided to count 6 competition results for the Ranking system (before was 4). We also allowed 11 judges panels now (before was just 7 or 9). There will be a big differences in counting points according to the amount of countries taking part. From now on, we will count all countries not only DSE member countries to set the cooficient number . Another news is: no Redance any more and a bit flexible amount of couples to the next round in special situations. For the organisers we asked now to prepare the results in special txt file so we will be able to upload all results immediately (there were manually input to that time)
We wish all the couples very successful 2019…. Happy Feet…. Keep Dancing
DSE Children European Grand Prix series for 2018 was completed with Maribor, Slovenia. Durning Maribor Open 134 couples from 15 different countries were competed, earning the points for DSE Ranking with the hope to win all season trophy in each of six categories. We noticed the most pointed event ever in Junior II latin category with coefficient 1,6 during that competition, so it was a great chance for couples to upgrade their ranking position.
All the year includes 19 events which were running in 10 different countries. Totally 1821 young couples from 21 countries were competing in that series of competitions during that year. Its second season of DSE CHEGP and we notice unbelievable growing in numbers of couples and countries. We already looking for 2019.
