Couples Competition at Friesland

Yesterday was couples events only at Friesland Leisure Centre in Sandiacre. We were a select team but what we lacked in quantity we certainly made up for in quality.

IMG_1116Madeleine and Emily S led the way in the 12-15years age category by winning all three of their ballroom events, their sequence event and two out of three of their Latin events. What a very impressive set of results achieved in a mix of rhythms. They had to perform all four ballroom dancers – Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango & Quickstep. the Tango Serida and then Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble & Jive in the Latin. Well done not just on your performance and results but also the mental challenge of remembering all of those routines.

The adult team consisted of Dennis & Sue, Neil & Carla and Andy & Dawn. In their age group events they took 1st, 2nd and 3rd place positions in both ballroom and latin. With Dennis & Sue coming out on top in ballroom and Andy & Dawn in Latin, In the Open Adult Sequence Saunter Together all were recalled to the final with 1st, 2nd & 5th places being achieved. Again, in the Open Adult ballroom and Latin events all were recalled to both finals with 1st, 3rd & 5th place positions in ballroom and 3rd, 4th & 5th in Latin.

Thank you to all of you who went yesterday. We were proud of you all, apart from your dancing achievements you were also the best presented and dressed team.
