EuroGames 2016 – Second Competition Day

Today was the day of the Senior Dancers and the Adult 10-Dancers. The audience enjoyed also some frightening and moving show dances.

Due to the changed rules for the granting of titles for the European Championships it was the first time that all places 1 to 6 (regardless of the class a couple was classified in) for each competition were honored by ESSDA with certificates and trophies for the first three places.

Today the practicing sessions took place at the venue. It is not easy to add a touch of class to a basketball field but I am sure the dancers will do it during all competitions.
