World famous dance show in Spa Piešťany
Piešťany, 28. 2. 2014
During its world tour, the world famous dance competition Dance Star also stopped off at the Spa Piešťany convention centre on March 15, 2014. Dances were held in various categories, such as ballet, folk, acrobatic, performing and contemporary dance, and the dancers fought not only for the favour of the jury, but also for valuable prizes.
Dance Star is a competition where dance schools from various countries vie to qualify for the big world finals World Dance Masters 2014, which will this year be held in Poreč, Croatia during the last weekend of May.
In the dance world, this competition is something similar to Superstar, but is also highly regarded by professionals as its rules adhere to European Dance Union standards (ESDU) and the members of the jury are professional choreographers, producers or international dancers.
Dance Star Slovakia 2014 also featured a special gala show, “The Night of Dance”, where the best dancers performed for spa guests and the general public. During this ceremonial evening, a person from the audience was chosen to become a member of the jury. The evening’s special guest was famous Austrian singer Markus Neugebauer.
The standard was very strong, as all dance groups reserved their best choreographed routines for the competition. In the end it was Phantom’s Crew who amazing on-stage energy impressed the jury and audience the most, as they performed to the beats of the famous song “Who Let the Dogs Out!” For first place in the dance competition they received a prize of 1,000 Euros from the event sponsor, Mr. Maik Schröder, general importer of Krombacher beer. Second place went to the NOVUM dance club, who received a voucher from Spa Piešťany for a night’s stay in the 5-star hotel Thermia Palace. A young contortionist from the club Ballet HGH, who came third, will enjoy a spa stay at Taste of Piešťany. A special 100-Euro prize was awarded to two children’s dance ensembles.
The successful evening showcased the best young talents and at the same time showed appreciation for their hard work and great love for movement and dance! There’s nothing left to do but for us to cross our fingers for those competing in the world finals and to look forward to next year’s Dance Star Slovakia in 2015.
