World Champion Couples Retiring 20/08/2013

Dancing Away Two Slovenian couples that were dancing in the WDSF Professional Division announced their retirement from active competition this summer.

On 31 July Luca Bussoletti and Tjasha Vulic announced that they would continue their career in coaching to share their passion for dance with the world.

After ten years of making finals in all major competitions and winning two Professional World Champion titles in Ten Dance, the couple put an end to their active career in Caorle, ITA, by thanking their families, friends, sponsors and - above all - their trainers and coaches.

Zoran Plohl and Tatsiana Lahvinovich bid farewell to competitive DanceSport  on 13 August during the German Open in Stuttgart. 2011 World Champions and 2012 - 2013 WDSF PD World Champions in Latin, they chose the GOC as the most appropriate occasion to make the announcement and perform a moving show in front of a huge and appreciative audience in the Beethoven Hall.

WDSF Communications will put together career review videos for both couples over the coming months. For the time being, you will certainly enjoy their performances that were recorded in Stuttgart (Luca and Tjasha in 2012; Zoran and Tatsiana in 2013).
