Simply marvellous! Last weekend, Styrian regional championships in Combination were held in the ATG hall in Graz. Under the watchful eyes of colleagues, trainers Lilly Schön & Eugen Brenner and of course our lovely Siret, many couples coached by Siret danced on this sunny afternoon. As you could maybe imagine after reading the header of this article, the results were simply breathtaking!
Severin Huemer-Kals & Anja Lena Gruber made a perfect start in the Allg. Klasse C Combination. With 6 out of 8 dances won, they ranked 1st as well as best Styrian couple – gold medal included! In addition, they also collected enough points and now climbed up in Latin C class. Their newly aquired skills in Paso Doble, the 5th Latin dance, were already presented during their start in Allg. Klasse A Combination, where they finally ranked 5th.
In the following, Wolfgang Kober & Nataliya Melnychenko rocked the Senior I A Combination. Clearly, they did not let any doubt in the judges minds and won with a straight 10 out of 10. As they compete for TSC Eden Graz, they also catched a gold medal for best Styrian couple in their class.
In Senior II A Combination, even two of Sirets’ couples reached the podium: Werner Baumann & Michaela Baumann ranked 2nd right before Christian Pilz & Michaela Stadler. Again, TSC Eden Graz president Eugen Brenner cheered as Werner & Michaela won the gold medal as best Styrian couple for their club.
Hans Mistelberger & Gertrude Kopp delivered a thrilling battle for first in Senior III A Combination: Fiinally, 4 first and 6 second places added up to a second place right behind the winners from Vienna.
The competition was crowned by the highest class, the Allg. Klasse S Combination. Here, Andrii Kamyshnyi & Karina Shpakovskaya showed again a great performance and beatiful dancing under Sirets’ watchful eyes. Impressively, they reached not only the first place but also the spectators amazement and enthusiasm.
Congrats to all dancers!
