There are also some photos from early rounds here.

I'm not completely convinced that the captions are accurate, but if that couple is actually Danish, my best guess is that they aer Nicolai Hansen and Claire Ratcliffe (or possible Charlotte Aamand or Cecilie Lassen). It seems a bit odd to send a soloist to such a competition, but he would be well within the upper age limit of 27, though I'm not sure about Ratcliffe.

Greetings!
My years of Chinese classes finally come in handy! I was almost right - the couple is Nicolai Hansen and Cecilie Lassen. Dawid & Marcin Kupinski (for Poland) & Sebastian Kloborg are also listed as competing.

The list of competitors is here

That's Sebsatian and either Dawid or Marcin in the red shirts in the 14th picture (3rd from bottom) on this page. I think that might be Nicolai looking at the number. And I believe the caption says something to the effect that drawing a small number (dancing early) is not very good!

Le Corsaire...thanks for the link! If you have any results please post! My Chinese is not good enough to figure out where the results are listed (if they are).

My thanks too, Le Corsaire. That top image is one of the most beautiful studio scenes I have seen.
