I returned earlier this week from the first meeting of the WDSF Sports for All Commission. WDSF President Carlos Freitag welcomed us and made some opening remarks about the establishment of this Commission and the important work he hoped it would tackle.
Chair Heidi Estler of Germany, Sandy Brittain of Canada and Professor Rainbow Ho of Hong Kong and I spent the early part of the meeting getting to know one another better and discussing our respective backgrounds and what motivated us to become interested and involved in promoting dance and DanceSport in our own federations. We also discussed how promotion of DanceSport could be tied in to the Olympic Movement as a whole. We then got down to the business of planning future projects that we hope to roll out later in the year and in 2015.
I was happy to take the minutes of the meeting, and once the minutes are reviewed and approved, information will be released on the future plans and activities of the Commission.
