It was an eventful weekend in Samorin, Slovakia, where the WDSF European Championships Under 21 10-dance took place. Bendixen Dans was strongly represented with two talented couples: Lucas Walsted & Amalie Bønnelykke Eir, representing Denmark, and Dimitru Sardari & Melissa Wederkinck, dancing for Moldova.
With 47 registered couples, the competition was intense. Our own coach, Sofie Koborg, was there to support and guide our couples Lucas and Amalie delivered a strong performance, reaching the quarter-finals and finishing in a commendable 24th place. Dimitru and Melissa went all the way to the finals, confidently securing silver medals by winning two dances and placing second in the remaining eight dances!
The results were as follows:
1. Yaroslav Kiselev – Sofia Filipchuk, Armenia
2. Dumitru Sardari – Melissa Wederkinck, Moldova
3. Padurariu Stefan Alexandru – Constandache Malina Elena, Romania
4. Jonas Tomanek – Sarka Kosmakova, Czech Republic
5. Tamas Kristof Kis – Maria Nagyova, Slovakia
6. Martin Slavoev – Maria Moiseeva, Bulgaria
24. Lucas Walsted – Amalie Boennelykke Eir, Denmark
This championship was a fantastic opportunity for our dancers to showcase their skills on the international stage. Competing at such a high level requires dedication, hard work, and a passion for dance. Participating in such prestigious events provides our dancers with invaluable experience and exposure. It’s not just technique and performance that are tested, but also mental strength and endurance, especially in 10-dance competitions. Both our couples were well-prepared and demonstrated that they have what it takes, both physically and mentally. We are incredibly proud of both couples and look forward to more triumphs in the future, where they will continue to represent Bendixen Dans and. Denmark and Moldova respectively on the global dance arena.
