Toronto Dancers Excel in America’s Ballroom Challenge
Dancesport instructors Andrei and Natale Paramonov, Amateur Latin champions Kamil Studenny and Katya Trubina, and Junior 10-dance champions Winson Tam and Anna Kus, all from Toronto, participated in the recently televised American’s Ballroom Challenge 2007. Andrei and Natale placed an astounding third place out of hundreds of couples in both the Professional Latin Division and the Professional Showdance Division!
Winson and Anna,only 11 and 12 years old, were selected to do a suprise Samba presentation. Says Anna “I was a little scared because there were all these judges around me and people that are my idols,” … but “Winson calmed me down and we went out and got a standing ovation”.
Anna and Winson are students at Viva Dance Studio, where the Paramonovs are also teaching.
