Dance Champions Interviews
Chicago Harvest Moon Ball Dancesport
TVDANCE.LIVE got the chance to interview winners like Arthur and Chang from Illinois, who won the Gold Open. The winning dance couple did the foxtrot, quickstep, waltz, and Venice waltz. Arthur started dancing young, at 7 years old, while Chang began at 20. The couple has been dancing for quite a while. “We’ve been dancing for like… 5… 7… 10 years?” Arthur said. This ballroom dance couple has built a strong connection and chemistry in dance.
The Kings Ball
Emma Ridley, our star interviewer for TVDANCE.LIVE, got an exclusive talk with the presenters of the Kings Ball: Rita Algara. Algara expressed her excitement and gratefulness for the presenters of every ballroom dance genre and the hype of the people who were present. The Kings Ball was one of the competitions that Algara entered. Now, she is one of the people who proudly presents the event to dance enthusiasts from across the world but mainly Russia and the United States.
The Burlesque Hall of Fame
The daring and exquisite dance event, the Burlesque Hall of Fame, was joined by many talented performers. TVDANCE.LIVE interviewed one of the performers and the first runner-ups of the competition in 2008 Lux Lacroix. She performed as Prince for the evening. She is also a choreographer based in New York but her love for performance arts urged her to present her dance at the Burlesque Hall of Fame. Her secret? Coffee.
This competition was held in San Francisco, where Emma Ridley interviewed Jessica and Slava, one of the performers. They have been partners for over 9 years, no wonder they’re great dancers showing their level of expertise. Emma asked the duo the golden question, the secret to their winning. Guess what it is. Well, they just simply enjoy dancing together.
Austin Joson and Nino Dzneladze: The Ballroom Power Duo
The technique, connection, and chemistry are the ingredients of ideal ballroom dance partners. And these are what Austin Joson and Nino Dzneladze have. TVDANCE.LIVE had the chance to film their performance at an exclusive dance interview at the Hilton in Prague. The duo is undoubtedly on fire. Their winning streak started in 2014, where they won the Dutch Open and the Open World Championship in Paris. Who would believe their partnership was only a few months old then.
Since their partnership, the couple harvested award after award. From the U.S. National Amateur DanceSport Championship to the Blackpool Dance Festival in England, and now the Czech Dance Championships in Prague, they literally danced their way to success.
How did this fantastic Latin dance couple become this superb? It has everything to do with their development years.
At the early age of 4, the young Nino began studying Latin Dance. Her confidence and skill were harnessed by competing at 6. The powerful and charming Austin, born and raised in New Jersey, also trained and competed at a young age. Austin competed when he was 9 and that honed his skill in dance. The two first met as competitors with Nino, together with her partner, beating Austin on their first encounter on stage. Austin admired Nino’s skill and passion, and the other held mutual thoughts. The quest for a partnership was hard to achieve at first with their geographic divide. However, the love for dance and the pull to partnership made everything happen.
Now, Nino and Austin are taking over the ballroom stage with their unbreakable connection and chemistry bound by their mutual passion for dance.
