That's Me!

Up Close!

How did you get into Dancesport; when did you start?

Already in early youth I was fascinated by dancing.

I loved Fred Astaire movies, ballroom music of the big band era, and watching ballroom competitions in TV whenever possible.

Mid/end of the 70's I spent almost all of my leisure time in dancing studio, longing to join that fascinating world of Dancesport.

But life had other plans for me. I gave up dancing for more than twenty years, married, became father of three wonderful children, got divorced...

One day I felt it was time for a change in my life and I came back to dancing. Beginning anew with dancing school, I met my first partner. Together we passed all levels of dance classes and then went for competitive dancing.

Having reached the level to participate in WDSF competitions, the dream of my youth came true: I am part of that fascinating world of Dancesport!

In summer 2013, my first partner had to retire from dancing, but with my new partner Uli Reitmayer I found the perfect counterpart.

Once again, dancing claims almost all of my (our) leisure time, and I (we) love and enjoy it! Together we are looking forward to many wonderful competitions.

 

What are the fascinations that keep you in Dancesport?

In his auto-biography “Music was my first love”, the famous German dancer and coach Oliver Wessel-Therhorn subsumes my feelings about DanceSport (and, of course, his own) in one sentence:
<Gerade dieser Traum Marke Hollywood, das Auftreten der Paare und die Eleganz des gesamten Umfelds, machten das Turniertanzen aus.> (Particularly that Hollywood-style dreaming, the couples’ demeanor and the elegance of the surroundings, that’s what ballroom dancing stands for.)

 

What are your aims in Dancesport?

To enhance our dancing skills and to give pleasure to our audience.

 

Is there anything in today's Dancesport that you are worried about?

The pursuit of increasing sportiness and drive bears the risk to loose elegance and musical expression.

 

Do you have time to meet friends outside of DanceSport?

Of course there are friends outside of Dancesport, too. A few, at least.

 

What would you do if you had an unexpected day off?

Having extra practice...

 

Do you have talents other than dancing that nobody knows about - yet?

Writing novels and short stories, photographing, cooking…

 

What genre of movie could motivate to go to the cinema?

Any kind of movie that is supposed to touch either my brain or my heart – or both of them.

 

Imagine you are on a deserted island!
What are the three things that you cannot imagine to be without, that you wish you had brought along?

My partner, a chest full of good books, and a Swiss army knife.

 

What are you most proud of in your sporting career or life?

My two sons and my daughter.

 

What dream would you like most to come true one day?

You better beware of your dreams and wishes, sometimes they’ll come true.

 

What are you looking at first when you meet a stranger?

The eyes, ‘cause eyes always tell the truth.

 

How do you cope with stress and bad moods?

High spirits, a thick skin and from time to time a glass of old red wine.

 

What is your motto in life?

<Nicht dem Leben mehr Jahre, sondern den Jahren mehr Leben geben.>  
It's not about adding more years to one's life, but adding more life to one's years.
(Curd Jürgens, German actor)
