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.

Inspiring Standard workshop with Matis Toome

Last sunday, on mothersday, a Standard workshop with Estonian dancer and trainer Matis Toome was again held. With his experience of many years and deep knowledge about the principles of movement in Standard dances he led invaluable group and private lessons for both beginners and advanced dancers. The presented contents were a welcome addition to Sirets teaching. With the gym of the school in Stattegg being again location for a Standard workshop, the dancers were able to train the correct creation of momentum and their position within the dance pair with sufficient space to move and a perfect dance floor.

Once more, big thanks to Matis Toome and his great collaboration with Siret! In addition to the outstanding quality of teaching, these workshops always act as a great source of inspiration and motivation for the dancers.
