And Suddenly ... 09/06/2013

8 June - Szombathely, HUN © RolandHeidi Goetz reports from Szombathely, HUN!

Good things have their value and are appreciated. This year the 48th edition of Savaria Dance Festival was held in Szombathely, HUN. When it was started it became one of the most popular international competitions. Every year it was reported about this event in the various dance magazines, such as Dance News. Top couples used to compete here and the list of winners sounds like a "Who is who in DanceSport?" list. Szombathely with all its dance clubs and dedicated trainers supported and developed dancing and it became one of the most important dance centers in Hungary. Formation DanceSport is very successful and well known from various Championships.

The local organizers "Agora" and Savaria TSE , supported by quite a group of sponsors, did all their efforts to add another great event in the long serie. A special thank goes to Mrs Berta Agota, she is the real good soul behind all this and meanwhile working in this DanceSport scene for 22 years.

The 2013 WDSF European Championship 10 Dance was held within this Dance Festival. It promised to become very interesting, the title was vacant. 32 couples entered and it was a really interesting field - well known faces as well as newcomers doing their first Championship. After the second round a group of favorites showed very clearly to be eager to become champion. Especially the representatives of Slovenia Miha Vodicar and Nadiya Bychkova danced a very impressive round. But in such a competition you have to prove your consistancy up to the very last dance. The new European Champions Anton Skuratov and Alona Oehlin, GER, showed a very good performence and deserved this success. Congratulations!

All the couples gave their maximum to make the Final and gave the adjudicators a hard time to mark 6 couples. So it happened that one of the favorite couples Daniil Ulanov and Irina Gogoladze, RUS, missed the Final. It was a pitty, but it was not their best night.

The couple from Finland Jaak Vainomaa and Taina Savikurka was well prepared for the day, showed excellent dancing in both disciplines and deserved well to finish 3.

... Romance ...Sergei & Nadiya

At the prize presentation, the couple in 2nd place Miha Vodicar and Nadiya Bichkova, SLO,  received their silver medals. Suddenly, we thought this is a special fan, who could not wait any more, somebody entered the stage: it was Sergei Konovaltsev carrying a big bunch of red roses. Hugs, kisses, tears, emotions and ...

Suddenly, ...

Nadyia had a ring on  her finger! Congratulations and all the best for the future!
