Two couples – two fresh duets. An interesting comparison and a social media controversy against an opposing federation.
Earlier, we have touched on the relatively fresh, but yet promising partnership that had shaken the dancesport world. Back in August, we covered the story behind Nino & Anna, which also included a little glance of their showdance. The internet mentioned that their closest competition together will be in October, and indeed it was.
A few months back, we were under the impression that Nino and Anna’s first competition together will be the 2015 Open World Championship in Poland. But they beat our expectations with their brave move, and came out at International Championships in early October.
They made Top 24 in Open Pro Latin, which we thought was quite good, considering the freshness of their partnership. The DanceSport Internet DISAGREED!
There was a bit of disagreement on the dancesport social medias with regards to their placement – opinionated statements of incompetence of the judging panel towards Nino’s previous choice of dance federation. However, we could not find any official confirmation or denial of such information.
On the other side of the fence…
Justinas Duknauskas partners up with Anna Kovalova
Anna Melnikova’s ex-husband-partner Justinas Duknauskas joined dance forces with US’ famous Anna Kovalova. Anna showed great results with her ex-partner Roman Kutskyy, winning 2014 Ohio Star Ball, but not really going outside of US. Recently, they debuted in Innsbruck, showing a very promising partnership and a strong competition to other couples!
These two amazing couples will eventually face each other on the competitive dance floor. Who is your favourite?
