From World Artist Dance Federation and SalsaNor, a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Arturo Rojas and Grupo Agua from Sweden, winners of the Wadf Rueda de Casino World Championship 2018!
Friday 7th of September the beautiful Sala Malaga in Hotel MS Amaragua in Torremolinos, were trembling with nerves and concentration from the 7 Rueda teams and nearly 80 dancers participating in the championship.
In the first round the focus was improvised Rueda de Casino to the organizers choice of music, in the finals Rueda choreography. The audience were both from the Rueda Congress and locals from the Malaga area, and the championship received great attention both in the Malaga local press and television.
The competing teams represented the UK, Spain (3 teams), Slovakia and Sweden (2 teams).
We also send our congratulations to 2nd place in the World Championship, also brought home to Sweden by the team Rueda Fuerte, and to 3rd place by Ruedón Bratislava from Slovakia.
Well done all 7 teams that bravely participated in the championship with great effort, enthusiasm and brilliant dancing! The next Wadf Rueda de Casino World Championship will take place in September 2020.
