This week London hosted one of the most prestigious dance competitions, The International, where young talents from all over the world come together to show off their skills in standard and Latin sports dance and compete against each other at the highest level. Two of Bendixen Dans’ couples, Marcus & Daria and Albert & Celina, represented the club and Denmark with impressive results.
Marcus and Daria made a strong start by winning a great 4th place in the U16 category’s standard tournament. But the couple didn’t stop there. Later they also participated in the standard competition for U19, where they managed to dance their way into the semi-finals among the 12 best couples. This was a remarkable result, defeating last year’s U16 Blackpool winners and many other good couples.
Albert and Celina also achieved very good results at the competition. In the U16 Rising Stars Standard cateogry they reached the semi-finals, which is their best result to date at The International. In the big U16 Latin competition, they placed among the top 48 couples out of a strong field of no less than 108 couples, which is also a significant achievement.
These results are not only a triumph for the young dancers, but also proof of the dedication, training and support that Bendixen Dans stands for. We are incredibly proud of Marcus, Daria, Albert and Celina and look forward to supporting them in their continued dance careers.
Unfortunately, it was not allowed to capture the magical moments on the dance floor during the competitions at The International, but instead we have something very special for you. We invite you to an exclusive sneak peek “behind the scenes” from the warm-up and award ceremony to one of the world’s most prestigious dance competitions.
We hope you enjoy this little journey behind the scenes and feel the excitement we have for our young stars from Bendixen Dans.
