Vadim Lehmann and Maria Kleinschmidt (TC Seidenstadt Krefeld) announced their split. They danced together for almost seven years and were part of the national team. After "unforgettable and wonderful years", both wanted to thank their teachers, among them Harry Körner, Pavel Kurgan, Asis Khadjeh-Nouri, Dirk Heidemann, Martin Pastor and Horst Beer, as well as the federations TNW and DTV. "We have met a lot of great people during that time and would like to thank you for everything", a letter to the DTV reads. Both are looking for new partners.
