With the Blackpool Dance Festival coming to a close yesterday, AIDA Dance US would like to mention some memorable results from couples who choose to wear the most comfortable and best ballroom dance shoes, AIDAs! This year the Blackpool Dance Festival was special for AIDA Dance US as we had 3 of our own sponsored couples who had amazing results at the event!
- Pasha Stepanchuk and Anastasiya Danilova finished 8th (out of 337) in Rising-Star Amateur Latin and 25th (out of 250) in the Amateur Latin events
- Craig Smith and Micheline Marmol WON the Exhibition Showdance
- Patryk Ploszaj and Anna Kaczmarski placed 4th in the Under-21 Ballroom and Top-48 in the Rising-Star Ballroom events (and they're only 16 years old!)
There were a number of North American couples who AIDA Dance US would like to wish a special congratulations to:
- Congratulations to Tal Livshits and Ilana Keselman for becoming the Vice-Champions of the Rising-Star Amateur Latin and placing 24th in the Amateur Latin events at the 2014 Blackpool Dance Festival. These were absolutely remarkable results for this couple and they have been showing tremendous improvement in the past few years!
- Congratulations to Kamil Studenny and Anna Pelypenko for placing 6th in the Rising-Star Professional Latin and 19th in the Professional Latin events at the 2014 Blackpool Dance Festival. Kamil and Anna are one of the hardest working couples and these results are affirmations that hard work goes a long way!
- Congratulations to Austin Joson and Sasha Kondrashova for placing 4th in the Under-21 Latin and 11th in the Rising-Star Amateur Latin events at the 2014 Blackpool Dance Festival. AIDA Dance US remembers seeing this couple competing for the first time only a few months ago and are so proud to see this couple have such amazing results!
- Congratulations to Adam Hathazi and Morgana Lakatos-Hayward for placing 5th in the Under-21 Latin and 8th in the Rising-Star Amateur Latin events at the 2014 Blackpool Dance Festival. Adam and Morgana have shown that they are reaching their potential sooner than expected and have posted their best results ever during this Blackpool!
- Congratulations to Nurlan Gallyamov and Jessica Swietoniowski for making the Semi-Final in both the Under-21 Latin and Rising-Amateur Latin events at the 2014 Blackpool Dance Festival. After dancing together for only a few short months, this couple have shown that dedication on the practice floor translates to results on the dance floor!
