Gooiland Trophy 2011, Hilversum

Our third competition after our injury period was going to be a success again. However the adjudicators didn't appreciate our dancing or appearance. We crashed in the first round and end on place 9 out of 10 couples. We danced at the same level as last week when we received 20 marks out of 20 and reached the second place. Strange that different adjudicators see things totally different. We decided never to dance in this place again, they frequently invite the same jury so we draw our conclusions. Our next competition is on 20 February, Tilburg Moves.

Onze derde competitie na onze kwetsuur periode ging terug een succes worden. De jury dacht hier echter anders over, zij hebben ons dansen of onze uitstraling niet geapprecieerd. We bleven steken in de eerste ronde en eindigen op plaats 9 van 10 paren. We dansten op het zelfde niveau als vorige week toen we 20 van de 20 crossen kregen en op plaats 2 eindigden. We hebben besloten nooit meer in Hilversum deel te nemen, hier nodigen ze veel dezelfde juryleden uit en daar trekken we onze conclusies uit. Onze volgende competitie is op 20 februari, Tilburg Moves.

  1. Sounds like a wise move to not compete there again. It must be hard to accept that there is such a personal bias in the judging.

  2. not nice to hear... but the important thing is you two really enjoy joining these competitions.


  3. What a pity over the judging. :(

    Good luck in your future competitions!
