Success at the International Dance Championships!
In one of the UK's most stunning and iconic venues, it was wonderful to see some fantastic results for our #IDSEliteTeam couples in the International Dance Championships at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as over the two days in Brentwood.
Four of the six couples in the Amateur Ballroom Final are #IDSEliteTeam couples with China's Charles & Sara winning the competition for a second year in a row! Fedor Isaev & Anna Zudilina (Russia) were second place whilst Dusan Dragovc & Liis End (England) and Igor Reznik & Mariya Polishchuk (Ukraine) also made the Final in what was the same top six lineup as Blackpool! Si Cheng Li & Zhou Man Ni (China) and Artem Kuklin & Alika Dikaya (Ukraine) also made the Semi-Finals.
We also had three of the six couples in the Amateur Latin Final too! Petar Daskalov & Zia James (England), Salvatore Sinardi & Viktoriya Kharchenko (Italy) and Austin Joson & Nino Dzneladze (USA) made this Final! Luca Urso & Alessandra Tripoli (Italy) and Tagir Mansurov & Sasha Kondrashova (USA) also made the Semi-Final!
In the Professional Ballroom, Arunas Bizokas won the competition with partner Katusha Demidova (USA) and new #IDSEliteTeam couple Valerio Colantoni & Monica Nigro (Italy) were fifth-placed with Warren & Kristi Boyce (England) making the Semi-Final. Ben Taylor & Stefanie Bossen (England) who have just turned Professional, began their career as Professional's with a fifth-place finish in the Professional Rising Star Ballroom in Brentwood!
Gunnar Gunnarsson & Marika Doshoris (England) made the Professional Latin Semi-Final, with Pasha Pashkov & Daniella Karagach (USA) and Zilong Wang & Celine Li Yang (China) making the Quarter-Final.
