The world championship in latin dances took place in the nearly sold-out Cez Arena in Ostrava, Czech Republic. 78 couples competed in front of the cheering audience in order to declare the world champion. Marius-Andrei Balan / Nina Bezzubova danced a great competition and reached the final. Unfortunately, their wish for a medal did not come true, they reached place four.
Pavel Pasechnik / Marta Arndt danced great as well and were - unfortunately like last year - "only" runners-up to the final, rank 7.
For the third time in a row, Aniello Langella / Khrystyna Moshenska were the victors.
Result of the final:
1. Aniello Langella / Khrystyna Moshenska, Italy
2. Armen Tsaturyan / Svetlana Gudyno, Russian Federation
3. Gabriele Goffredo / Anna Matus, Moldova
4. Marius-Andrei Balan / Nina Bezzubova, Germany
