The variety of the performances offered to the audience by the IDO choreographers and dancers was more than impressing. A hard working IDO team of Adjudicators, Scrutineers, Chairperson and Supervisor supported by a helpful organizers team took care of this unexpected high number of entries for this continental IDO event.í
