  • Description

    Only a few swinging, gyrating couples were left for the recent finals of the World Championship "Rock and Roll" dancing competition at Montreux, Switzerland. Demonstrating more energy than Olympic Games marathon runners, the males threw their trusting partners over their heads and under their legs to a hot jazz beat.

    Many young enthusiasts favoured the style of the French couple - Jocelyne and Jean Delhomme - but it was the near-exhausted Italian couple, Violette Quarti and Benito di Lernio, who won the judges' acclaim - and the world cup.
