Their motto keeps Danish couple Martino Zanibellato and Michelle Abildtrup at the top of their game: the Latin dances. Michelle and Martino answered a few more questions on their quest to be among the world's best ...
How did you get in contact with DanceSport? My mum took me to a dance school when I was two.
What are the fascinations that keep you in DanceSport? The emotions and motions shared betweeen two people. And, of course, the music!
What is your aim in DanceSport? To fulfil our feeling for music and movement.
Is there something in DanceSport today that worries you? The political issues take too much focus away from the development of the couples and dance itself.
Do you have time to meet friends? Once in a while, yes, but we have very good friends amongst the dancers. We meet them very often, either during training or in competitions.
What would you do if you have - unexpectedly - a day off? Just relax!
What kind of movie could motivate you to go to the cinema? Anything from funny to scary! Just to have a chance to go to the cinema would be great.
Imagine you are on a deserted island. What are the three things you would want to have with you, you cannot imagine to live without? A picture of my family, my dancing shoes and my toothbrush.
Do you have other talents that nobody knows so far? Not really!
What are you most proud of? We are proud of having achieved most of our personal goals in DanceSport so far.
Which of your dreams would you like most to come true? For our families and ourselves to have good health, and to be able to touch people with our dancing.If you meet a person you don't know, what do you look at first? The eyes, the window to the soul!
How do you cope with stress and a bad mood? They are both part of the life we choose to live, so we talk about our problems or go for a long walk.
