In Cambrils, Spain, on Saturday of the Easter weekend it was all about participations in the final and medal placings in the European Championship Amateur Latin. 69 couples from 39 nations faced the continental comparison. Tanzsport Deutschland was represented by Marius-Andrei Balan/Khrystyna Moshenska and Timur Imametdinov/Nina Bezzubova.
With strong international competitors the victory of a DTV couple can not be taken for granted, but Dumitru Doga/Sarah Ertmer did it.
From Friday until Sunday everything was about dance sports in Vienna last weekend. From the amateur class till senior IV there were a lot of WDSF competitions, in which the DTV couples could get various good reults.
In Thessaloniki, Greece, two German couples also were successful.
At the Grand Slam in Wuhan, China, the DTV top couples made the German delegation proud. Not only their performance and quality during the competition, but also their results are to be honoured.
It was a heart beat final in the sold-out city hall of Siegburg with an energetic atmosphere and standing ovations for the finalists of the German Championship Amateur Latin. Unfortunately, because of the closed judging system the audience could not witness how tight the decision was and how pulsating the final was. In the end, Timur Immametdinov/Nina Bezzubova became the new German Champion.
The country of the rising sun presented itself with a lot of sun, but also with low temperatures. But this was only outside, because the couples of the 19th Tokio Open Championship really put the heat to the spectators – with good results for Tanzsport Deutschland.
In the Romanian capital two DTV couples danced into the final of their world ranking list competition: Maxim Stepanov/Ksenya Rybina finished 4th at the World Open Latin competition, Olaf Habermann/Andrea Peters 3rd at the Senior II Open Standard competition.
The long journey to the 19th Tokio Open Championships was worth it for Benedetto Ferruggia/Claudia Köhler. They won the PD Standard competition absolutely sovereignly and were happy about thousands of fans in the Tokyo Center that cheered them excitedly.
At the ranking list competition amateur standard exactly a dozen couples started. Valentin and Renata Lusin won this competition well-deserved with the best result possible. The 2nd place was given to Daniel Radu/Anne Weber, the 3rd to Emil-Daniel Leonte/Kristina Limonova, who could reach the 3rd place in all dances. Fabian Wendt/Anne Steinmann ranked 4th, Tobias Soencksen/Angelika Solymosi 5th. The 6th place went to the siblings Joshua and Jadzia Kadjeh-Nouri.
27 nations were taking part and each nation was sending one couple to Copenhagen to the European Championship 10-dance in order to find the new champion. After a long competition day over three rounds the finalists were certain. Dima Doga/Sarah Ertmer could clearly win all the dances in the standard section and get three 2nd places and two 3rd places in the latin section in the final.
