2018 WDSF GrandSlam Standard Rimini | Quarterfinal
14 July 2018Subscribe now
Nine years after a GrandSlam was held in Rimini, ITA, for the first and last time until 2018, the premier Series in DanceSport returned to the Adriatic resort town. This time with both disciplines and - as the Italians say - "allo grande." At an imposing venue, in the "Blue Arena" at the Rimini Fair, the 92 Standard couples outdid themselves in a setting that looked every bit as perfect as those seen on "Dancing with the Stars." The top two couples in the GrandSlam Ranking would be able to confirm that Rimini as a DanceSport destination has evolved much since 2009. That was the year they finished 14th (Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova) and 21st (Francesco Galuppo and Debora Pancini). But so have they!
