Interview with Emanuel & Tania – Part I
March 10th, 2010
At the Snowball Classic earlier this year, Joel and I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with the winners of the IDSF Standard event, Emanuel Valeri & Tania Kehlet. Although Emanuel is Italian, the couple represents Denmark and are currently ranked 2nd in the IDSF Standard World Ranking List. Having traveled to Denmark and having trained with their Danish coach, Hans Laxholm, ourselves, Joel and I had a lot to talk to them about.

As you can see from this hard working and dedicated couple, success does not come easily. You have to be patient and focused; you have to work hard and be committed; and you have to have faith and believe strongly in what you are doing… All vital ingredients to get you to the top!

Interview with Simone & Annette – Part 1
January 28th, 2010
At the Snowball Classic in Vancouver this past weekend, Joel and I had the opportunity to have a chat with two of the couples who were competing in the IDSF Open Standard event. Currently ranked 4th in the IDSF Standard World Ranking List, Simone Segatori & Annette Sudol, representing Germany, were gracious enough to let us publish our conversation together. They were willing to divulge all their ‘secrets’ (well, almost all!) to help inspire up and coming dancers like yourselves. Joel and I used to train and compete with them in England when they were just coming up the ranks, so it was nice to be able to sit down and catch up with them.
Bringing Inspiration to Vancouver – Snowball 2010
January 26th, 2010
Wow! What a weekend! The Snowball Classic was held this past weekend Jan 22-24, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was 3 days full of action-packed events from morning ’til midnight. Joel and I were absolutely exhausted by the time it was done. There was so much to see and nothing that we really wanted to miss, so we were in the ballroom all day and all night.
