The start­ing field con­sis­ted of 59 cou­ples who came from Ita­ly, Aus­tria, the USA, France and Lithua­nia, among others. Due to this lar­ge num­ber of par­ti­ci­pan­ts, the tour­na­ment stret­ched over 4 preli­mi­na­ry rounds and the final. The dancing took place in the Beet­ho­ven Hall and the Old Riding Hall.

After ano­ther 5 dances in the final, they were able to pre­vail against the com­pe­ti­ti­on and achie­ved 1st place.
