Wijchen Swingt 2012 – Part 2 – Videos B-class first round and The Swing Dancers

As mentioned yesterday, below you find the video of our dancing in the B-class competition Ballroom Dancing in Wijchen. We selected the first round because there were 14 couples together on the floor. It gives you an idea how busy it can be and difficult to avoid hitting each other. Sometimes it is hard, people could fall or hit another couple. It would not be the first time someone is knocked down.

The second video shows a summary of “The Swing Dancers” who gave a demonstration. It is a group of 101 young people between 5 and 18 years old. This proves that dancing is also cool for kids and teens.

Zoals gisteren vermeld, zie je hieronder een video van ons dansen in de B-klasse competitie Ballroom Dancing in Wijchen. We kozen voor een video van de eerste ronde want toen waren we met 14 paren samen op de vloer. Het geeft u een goed idee hoe druk het kan zijn en moeilijk om elkaar niet te raken. Soms is het hard, mensen kunnen vallen of tegen elkaar botsen. Het zou niet de eerste keer zijn dat er iemand wordt neergeslagen.

De tweede video toont een samenvatting van “The Swing Dancers” die een demonstratie gaven. Dit is een groep van 101 dansers tussen de 5 en 18 jaar oud. Het toont aan dat dansen leuk is voor kinderen en tieners.

  1. You have the world's greatest hobby.

    I know how difficult it is to dance on the floor if you have 14 pairs at the same time ... But you waited quietly to calm and even dance the situation calmly. Kristel, you have a wonderful position and Filip you have a great back. Truly a beautiful sight ..
    Once again I looked at you, then I was reminded of my own time, and on the other hand I would hope that it would be continued.
    Where the age ranges you dance?

    Best recards

  2. So enjoyed this video of you and Kristel! I can definitely see that you have to be a very good leader to avoid running in to other couples. Looks like the two of you are very well "practiced " with each other, and that certainly helps. I can readily see thought that with so many people on the floor at the same time, someone could definitely be injured. Very lovely to watch.

  3. I had a lovely glass of red while I watched you and Kristel dance, Filip! I toasted the two of you at the end. Kristel's red dress is fabulous. I am breathless just watching you. My Granddaughter has taken dance for several years (she's 8) - sometimes tap and this year ballet. I think dance helps to instill confidence both physically and emotionally.

  4. You are both just a vision, so light on your feet, like you are floating, beautiful posture! You two really seem to live the dream life. The swing dancers are very young, so cute!

  5. Wat zijn jullie goed, het plezier straalt er vanaf!
    Groetjes Cristien.

  6. Wonderful videos from your performance and from The Swing Dancers. Great !
    Have a nice day.

  7. Hoi Filip en Kristel,
    Wat gaaf om jullie samen zo stijlvol over de dansvloer te zien gaan. Wat moet dat fantastich zijn om dit te kunnen. Knap hoor!!
    Leuk dat het gefilmd is.

    Groetjes, Marco

  8. its great to share with us your dancing videos-thankU! looks so peaceful, but I suppose it a lot of tension inside of you to make everything right...

  9. Es sieht schön und elegant aus, wie ihr über die Tanzfläche schwebt.
    Ich wünsche euch weiterhin viel Freude und Erfolg.
    Herzliche Grüsse

  10. Leuk dat ze ook de jeugd erbij betrekken. Dat is goed voor ze te bewegen. Jullie dans ziet er mooi uit, echt topsport.

  11. You both look so divine and noble, I love watching ballroom dancing. I danced ballroom dances at age of 13 or something for year or two but then I focused to figure skating.
