From Bronze to Open Championship, Junior up to Professional, our company, Emotions DanceSport, had finalists in almost every major event, many of whom won or placed in the top 3 of their events, making Emotions DanceSport once again one of the most successful companies in the Pacific Northwest! We are so proud of all of our students, even the ones who didn’t place, because everyone works so hard and does so well. We love seeing all of our students’ progress and we can’t wait to get to work and really rake in the medals. So here are the biggest achievements from the dancers in our company:

Professional Open Standard: Simeon and I took 2nd place, behind our old-time friends Max and Lesya Sinitsa. Congrats, Max and Lesya!
Professional Open Latin: Simeon and I once again took 2nd place! Yay!
Important to note, that even though there were Rising Star events for the professionals in Latin and Standard, Simeon and I are no longer allowed to dance those, as we are the Bulgarian National Champions. Oh well! Good reason for being disallowed! I’m not complaining!
I wanted to mention two of our other students: Deanna Beglyarova, who danced beautifully and was unfortunately not marked where she should have been. I didn’t mention her above because she danced Pro-Am with Simeon only in the single-dance events, as she is not yet 15 and, therefore, not old enough to dance in the Scholarship events. If she had been able to, I am sure she would have done beautifully. Deanna looked amazing and I can’t wait to get back to work on her. Congratulations for your beautiful dancing, Deanna!
Also, Rachel Wu, who also danced beautifully with Simeon in the Pro-Am single dance events. Great job, Rachel!
