XS travelled to Bremerhaven this weekend for the 2007 Latin Formation Dance World Championships. The level of competition was very high and XS was very pleased to be placed 15th out of 22.
The two German teams — the hosts, Bremerhaven, and last year’s champions, Bremen — tied for first place, while the Lithuanians were placed third.

To show off their new routine, XS journeyed to Düsseldorf to compete, for the first time, in the European Latin Formation Championships. The top teams from across Europe compete at this event and the standard was incredibly high. Despite a remarkable performance, particularly given the routine is so new, XS did not receive enough recalls into the semi final. Bremen, the reigning world champions, took first place.

The first training session for XS Latin this year saw the commencement of training on a new routine, entitled On Broadway. The new routine takes its inspiration from musicals of Broadway and the West End, and the music includes snippets of songs such as Big Spender, Whatever Lola Wants and Aquarius. The first competitive performance of the new routine is scheduled for the European Championships in May, which gives the team less time than they’ve ever had before to learn and refine the six minutes of choreography.

Taking its inspiration from some of the classic musicals of the 1960s and 1970s, On Broadway aimed to capture the feeling of the Broadway or West End theatre land.
