Wijchen Swingt 2012 – Our competition report and video Championship Class

After our dance lesson yesterday, we tried it out on the competition in Wijchen. Our teachers and coaches Herman & Michele were present some last minute hints. There were 14 couples at the start of the B-class and we qualified directly for the first eight, so no redance for us. In the semi-final our dancing was also good and we were pleased with the progress. As already mentioned last week we feared the result and didn’t make the final. We became 8th out of 14 couples. The video of our dancing will be published tomorrow.

The open Championship class competition was special with 18 couples. A few newly formed couples danced for the fist time and some from the past came back. This resulted in a surprise final. We hope you enjoy the video of this super dancing.


Na onze dansles van gisteren, probeerden we onze nieuwe elementen uit in de competitie in Wijchen. Onze leraars en coaches Herman & Michele Lak waren aanwezig voor enkele laatste tips. Er kwamen 14 paren in de B-klasse aan de start en we kwalificeerden ons na de eerste ronde bij de eerste acht paren, geen herkansing voor ons dus. In de halve finale was ons dansen goed en waren tevreden met de vooruitgang. Zoals reeds vermeld vorige week vreesden we voor het resultaat in deze wedstrijd en bereikten we de finale niet. We werden 8ste van 14 paren. De video van ons dansen wordt morgen gepubliceerd.

De open hoofdklasse was zeer speciaal met 18 paren aan de start. Enkele nieuw gevormde koppels dansten voor de eerste keer in Wijchen en ook kwam er een gestopt paar weer terug. Het eind resultaat was een verrassende finale. We hopen dat jullie genieten van deze video met super dansen.

1. Maksim Osetrov & Danique Zegels (169)
