The road to championships

Participating in international championships and major events in dance sports is a complex and demanding process. It’s not only the dancers who need to prepare, but also the coaches who travel with them. At major championships, it’s common for dancers to be nervous in the first rounds. Or in some competitions there are only 20 minutes between rounds and therefore the stress factor is high. Here, the coach’s job is to encourage the dancers to perform at their best – even in the final rounds.

Preparation and Planning

The planning starts long before the championship itself. This includes choosing which competitions the pair will participate in to qualify for the championship and creating a plan for their development leading up to the qualifiers and championship. There is no national coach in sports dance. Every pair has their own personal trainer, and many top clubs have a sports manager who has the overall overview.
