German Open Championships 2019

Published

on

The biggest and most awaited World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) event of the year has now been archived with more than 4,000 registrations, 58 present nations, and 45 different competitions. Once again, the 33rd edition of the German Open Championships 2019 gave people unique sentiments to remember for a long time.

The Professional Division

The competition week started with the WDSF PD Super Grand Prix Latin. Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus confirmed to the world that they are, without a doubt, number one in their category, boasting a near ten-point gap between them and Marts Smolko and Tina Bazykina, the runners up.

Not only was a night full of energy and sparkles, but of strong emotions too, as Alexandr Shmonin and Maria Shmonina announced their retirement from their competitive careers.

Day after day, the feelings grew to their highest peak, when Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova performed outstandingly on the floor of the Beethoven Saal – the same floor that saw them win the Amateur title twice, in both 2017 and 2018.

“Today we felt really free mentally, and it made us fly. The main importance to us was to dance: to dance really from the bottom of our hearts, and we loved it!”

The Amateur Competitions

Standard

The amazing performances of the pros fired up the Amateurs’ atmosphere in the last two days of the German Open Championships 2019. It’s tough to surprise the public with marvelous dancing after a lineup of professionals. Nevertheless, the top amateur couples weren’t worried at all.

On Friday, the title of the Grand Slam Standard Champions went to Evaldas Sodeika and Ieva Zukauskaite, who earned a standing ovation after their spectacular Quickstep. Therefore, the adjudicators noted it more than a full point higher than that of the runners-up, Francesco Galuppo & Debora Pacini

The real fight, though, was between Moshenin-Spitsyna and Glukhov-Glazunova for the bronze medal. In the end, Evgeny Moshenin and Dana Spitsyna got the third place by only 0.169 points!

Latin

At the German Open Championships, Saturday night rhymes with latin night! 

This time was a special edition for the home public; two German couples claimed the highest podium steps. Nonetheless, Marius-Andrei Balan and Khrystyna Moshenska confirmed their title with their unique and passionate dancing. Still, Timur Imametdinov and Nina Bezzubova – the silver medalists – put on a stunning show as well.

Why are the German Open Championships so special?

The German Open Championships holds a very special place in dancers’ hearts. It might be because of the beautiful venue, the orchestra, or the importance that this event has gained over the course of its rich history. 

Whatever the reason, what really matters to those who love dancesport is being part of it and experiencing the feelings that can only be given to you by the German Open Championships.

Mirko Gozzoli & Edita Daniute: Our Vision For The Presentation Before The Dance

Published

on

In our online course with Dancesportlife Academy, we have touched a lot of important subjects in the ballroom dancing world. We shared our vision starting from personal posture to couple’s hold and going to key principles and choreography. But we also discussed one topic that is not often explained by teachers: the presentation before the dance. 

How important is the presentation before the dance?

The answer is: very important!

At the competition, before we start the dance we need to introduce ourselves. It’s very important even how we walk onto the dance floor, let alone how we present our partner in the correct place!

So here are a few things that you need to check if you want to have a good presentation on the dance floor.

The walk

First of all, you need to decide on which side, corner or space of the floor you need to start. But be careful: you also need to be flexible to change your spot if there are too many couples in your spot. 

How you walk on the floor is one of the most important aspects. You need to take your time so that it doesn’t look like a race for the most wanted space of the floor.

Walk with confidence and show yourself to everyone! Then you select your corner and wait patiently while the MC/Chairman counts the couples.

The invitation

We are ballroom dancers, thus an elegant attitude is a must! The man is wearing a tail suit and the lady is wearing an exquisite dress: we need to invite her in an appropriate way. 

The man’s invitation should be in relation to the music. So, if I have a waltz, the invitation will be on the first bar of music. Once the partner arrives, we take our hand position. We should take the hand position in relation to the preparation step, like this will all look very natural and not mechanical. 

Everything should blend and be in harmony! 

The connection

Be also careful with the space between the man and the lady! If you stand too close, you may end up looking a bit panicked as if you would need each other’s protection. 

The connection is very important, as there are many couples that too far away from each other and they look like they don’t even dance together. Furthermore, it will be unclear for the lady how exactly she should be positioned.

The bow at the end of the dance

This is also a very important part, as it the last impression that you leave to the audience and the adjudicators. 

We suggest that you bow in the same direction and, if possible, have an underarm turn and then a bow. Never leave your partner alone!

The small details are the ones that make a difference and always remember to take the appreciation of the public and not ask for it!
