Dutch Championships 2011 Standard Adults, top dancing

Again it was top today at the Dutch Championships Standard in Almere. After the seniors, it was time for the main challenge of the year for the adults. Many couples participated and our team members of Love2Move did a great job. Thomas Doodkorte and Kelly Basoski reached the Final of the B-class and became 6th. Dennis van Veluw and Esmeé van Doorn became 3rd in the A-class out of 22 couples. Also praiseworthy was the performance of Theo and Claudia van den Brink who became 3rd in the C-class out of 31 couples. They promoted to the B-class, so we dance together the next competition.

The highlight of the evening was the Final of the Championship class. It was just amazing, the 6 finalist danced really well and this is top sport at the highest level. The reining champion Marcello Nencini and Tessa de Jongh prolonged their title of Dutch Champion. They were the favourites and took the title for a second time. Everyone expected this and it was also clear for the adjudicators. Places 2 till 6 where not so decisive, all five couples performed to so well and showed excellent quality dancing. A very emotional Ciccio Pecoraro and Jasmijn van Jole claimed the 2nd place. Extreme happiness and something you can be proud of. Congratulations to all couples for such a great final.

Het was terug een top dag op het Nederlands Kampioenschap Standaard dansen te Almere. Na de Senioren was het deze keer de beurt aan de adults voor de grootste uitdaging van het jaar. Het aantal deelnemers was zeer hoog en onze teamgenoten van Love2Move hebben het uitstekend gedaan. Thomas Doodkorte en Kelly Basoski bereikten de finale van de B-Klasse en werden 6de. Dennis van Veluw en Esmeé van Doorn werden 3de van 22 paren in de A-klasse. Ook lovenswaardig was de prestatie van Theo en Claudia van den Brink die 3de werden van 31 paren in de C-klasse. Ze promoveerden naar de B-klasse en we dansen volgende competitie dus samen.

Het hoogtepunt van de avond was de Finale van de Hoofdklasse. Het was gewoon betoverend, alle 6 de finalisten dansten fantastisch en dit was top sport van de hoogste kwaliteit. De regerende kampioen Marcello Nencini en Tessa de Jongh verlengden hun titel van Nederlands Kampioen. Ze waren de favorieten en wonnen de titel voor de 2de keer op rij. Iedereen had dit verwacht en het was ook duidelijk voor de jury. De plaatsen 2 tot 6 waren niet zo gemakkelijk te verdelen, alle paren dansten zeer goed en brachten top kwaliteit. Een zeer geëmotioneerde Ciccio Pecoraro en Jasmijn van Jole overtroffen zichzelf en werden 2de. Extreem geluk en blijdschap. Iets waar ze absoluut trots kunnen op zijn. Hartelijk gefeliciteerd aan alle paren voor zo’n fantastische finale.
