Dazzling Dubai 6 January 2020
At the end of last year several of our couples and adjudicators attended the Dubai Dance Week 2019 which gave a great end to the year for all.
Although Dubai has such a great reputation for glitz and glamour there are very few Ballroom and Latin competitions held there. Dubai Dance Week has certainly shown the Dancesport world how sparkling a competition can be.
George & Ada along with Nick & Charmaine both traveled from the UK on a relatively short flight and were greeted with all the hospitality that you would expect from the people of Dubai. Thanks to only a small amount of time difference little adjustment was required before our couples headed to the competition floor.
DDW 2019 was held across a number of days and included competitions for all, both amateur and professional as well as all age categories. For our two couples the competition provided an opportunity to dance in a number of events from Rising Star to the World Open both in Adult and Senior 1.
Great success was had by both couples with George & Ada placing 5th in Senior 1 Standard and 7th in Senior 1 Latin whilst Nick and Charmaine reached 3rd in the Senior 1 Latin and 7th in Senior 1 Standard.
