The Lively Caribbean Dancesport Classic 2007
The Caribbean Dancesport Classic 2007 is set to take place from 7-11 November 2007 at the El San Juan Hotel and Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Situated just two miles from the San Juan International Airport in the fashionable Isla Verde district of San Juan, this stylish resort is right in the heart of the stunning beachfront and the vibrant night-life of the city.
The Caribbean Dancesport Classic 2007 features Pro-Am Dance Competitions, as well as a series of Open Professional Dancesport Competitions and the Caribbean Dancesport Classic Open Professional Showdance Challenge. This is the perfect opportunity for contestants brush up on their dance skills while competing to earn points towards the Dancesport Superbowl’s series finale at the Ohio Star Ball. The Caribbean Dancesport Classic 2007 will be hosting the NDCA recognized “Open to the World” professional salsa championship on Saturday 10 November. As an added incentive, there are also a number of cash prizes up for grabs.
Contestants have been invited to arrive on 7 November to enjoy a day of leisure while taking in the sights of San Juan before the competitions start on 8 November. There are plenty of activities to enjoy, including water sports, aerobics, tennis, golf and swimming in the sea or in the beautiful beachfront swimming pool. Enjoy some shopping and local cuisine in nearby Old San Juan as well as exploring many places of interest. For those that love to party – every night after the Caribbean Dancesport Classic event ends, party-lovers can join the Puerto Rico Hustle Salsa Festival at the Condado Plaza Hotel and dance until 4 a.m.
Dancesport represents dance as a sporting activity, with the International Dancesport Federation (IDSF) governing amateur dancers and the World Dance and Dancesport Council (WD&DSC) governing dance professionals. Amateur dancesport is very popular around the world and has attained high standards under the guidance of the IDSF. Efforts to have dancesport included in the Olympic Games as a medal sport have met with limited success so far. Although the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has given official recognition to dancesport as a sport, it will only consider incorporation into the Olympic Games after the 2012 event.
So dancing fans, whether you are a dancer or spectator, make a plan to head for San Juan in the beautiful country of Puerto Rico and enjoy the Caribbean Dancesport Classic 2007.
