Caroline Coomber School of Dance
Falkirk 1 September 2019
On Sunday 1 September the latest Dancesport Scotland competition was held at Falkirk Town Hall.
Representing our Dance School were:
– Peter Alexander and Joanne Bugden (who you will recognise from the Inverness classes)
– Brian Watt and Kathy McGrath Gunn
Both couples had been working exceptionally hard and practicing non stop, and were also trialing new routines. They were required to do nine different dances in the categories they competed in, most dances more than once: Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep, Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble.
Peter and Joanne did extremely well, especially in the Intermediate Ballroom where they won very convincingly against very strong competition:
– 1st Over 35 Intermediate Waltz, Tango, Quickstep
– 2nd Over 35 Intermediate Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive
– 2nd Senior 1 Over 35 Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive
– 3rd Over 35 Pre Champ Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep
– 3rd Over 35 Pre Champ Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Jive
– 4th Senior 1 Over 35 Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep
Brian and Kathy also did very well:
– 2nd Senior 3 Over 55 Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep
– 2nd Senior 2 Over 45 Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Jive
– 3rd Over 35 Intermediate Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive
– 3rd Senior 1 Over 35 Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive
– 4th Over 35 Intermediate Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep
Congratulations to them for doing so well.
A very impressive achievement in itself as all of their routines are at an advanced level. Lots of dedication, practice, discipline and stamina required. Fantastic results against some stiff competition.
