BRIGHT SUMMER 2019 – where art and sport meet
June 29 2019

The sports summer of 2019 is at its height! The 2nd European Games 2019 continue to amaze not only with bright sports victories, but also with music and dance festivals held at the main venues of Belarus.

This Friday night was no exception, with Minsk hosting ‘Bright Summer 2019’ international dancesport competitions. The event was organised by the Sports and Tourism Ministry of Belarus, NOC Belarus, Minsk City Executive Committee, World DanceSport Federation, DanceSport Europe and the Belarusian Alliance of DanceSport.

There is a lot of symbolism in holding the tournament during the 2nd European Games 2019. After all, sport and dance have so much in common. Dancesport combines physicality and musicality, flexibility and coordination, grace and discipline, sense of style and team spirit. But, unlike other disciplines, dancesport can be considered not just a sport, but a true art.

The spectators absolutely enjoyed the skill of the participants who competed at the Republican State School of Olympic Reserve. 

The representatives of Belarus, the CIS and EU countries performed in DSE Children Grand Prix Junior 1 Open LA, DSE Children Grand Prix Junior 1 Open ST, DSE Children Grand Prix Junior 2 Open LA, DSE Children Grand Prix Junior 2 Open ST, DSE Children Grand Prix Juvenile Open LA, DSE Children Grand Prix Juvenile Open ST, WDSF U21 Open LA, WDSF U21 Open ST, childen 1+2 - E3, children 1+2 - E4, youth+adult C La, youth+adult C St, novice pairs 2009 and older (W, Ch, J), novice pairs 2010-2011 (W, Ch, J), novice pairs 2012 and younger (W, Ch), novice solo 2009 and older (W, Ch, J), novice solo 2010-2011 (W, Ch, J), novice solo 2012 and younger (W, Ch), seniors - Open La, seniors Open St Junior 1+2 - E+D La, juniors 1+2 - E+D St, juniors 1+2 - E4.

Bright emotions, graceful movements, feeling of music and great physicality were all demonstrated by the aspiring stars of the European dancesport. 

There is a chance that dancesport will be included in the competitive programme of the 3rd European Games 2023.
