WDC Italian Open
Italian Open 2009
The standard was very high with some of the best couples from around the world.
Professional Ballroom - Roberto Villa and Morena Colagreco from Italy came first. Other couples came
from Slovenia, Germany, England, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine.
Professional Latin - Emanuele Soldi and Elisa Nosato from Italy came first. Others came from Germany,
Finland, Ukraine, Russia, Greece and Czeck Republic.
Annabelle Perez and Illia Miasnick from Arad came 11th in Italian Open Amateur Latin.
The famous Italian Open was a wonderful experience. The panel of judges was awesome - Massimo Giorgianni, Augusto
Schiavo, Caterina Argenton, Jerry Abrate Vice President of WDC, Serrena Lecca - all from Italy, Andrew Sinkinson from
England, Sergei Ryupin from Russia, and others including Brigita Elksne, Lalla Turra Dell'Orto the founder of the Cervia dance
festival, Svatislav Vloch President of IDSA, Annatoli Treliski President of IATPD of Israel and more.
Annabelle Perez and Illia Miasnik from "Love To Dance" Arad came fifth in the Amateur League World Championship 2009
Ten Dance Under21 category and got into the semi finals of the Amateur Latin Italian Open 2009 which they did not expect or
even believe when it happened.
Italian Open Finalists - Amateur Latin
22 couples competed - 4 Russian couples, 1 from Denmark and 1 from Azerbaizhan got into the finals.
First place went to Kirill Belorukov & Elvira Skrylnikova from Russia. I have been following this couple for many years. Kirill I first filmed in Blackpool
dancing 10-11 where he came third. He then came first in ten dance in Mannheim 12-13. He came first in Junior
one and Junior two in Holland. He then came first in youth. His first year in amateur Latin in Holland he came
17th, second year 3td and third year 1st. This year he came 7th in Amateur Latin in Blackpool and I am sure will
continue to rise. He was first in the Amateur League championships in Paris in December 2008. As far as I know
he is no longer dancing Ballroom.
Amateur Amateur Ballroom above - you only see the first three couples of the finalists - first
place went to a wonderful young couple from China - Chao Yang and Yiling Tan, second to Azerbaizhan and third to Serbia, others
from England, Italy, Czeck Republic and Ukraine.
Annabelle and Illia were shocked and overjoyed at getting into the semi finals and coming 11th in Amateur Latin. In the photo above together with Sergei Rupin from Russia and Anatoli Treliski from Israel.

Press Release 3rd March 2009 Click here for PDF download
BDC PRESS STATEMENT.
The British Dance Council is disturbed to note that an IDSF member body, FIDS, has imposed a ban on Junior and Juvenile
dancers from Italy participating in the British Open to the World Junior Festival 2009. There has been no direct contact between
FIDS and the British Dance Council, the Organiser Sandra Wilson, Leisure Parcs or the IDSF member body in England , EADA.
Although a meeting was held in Bournemouth in January at the request of FIDS it would appear that the internal disputes
in Italy have resulted in FIDS imposing a ban on Italian Junior and Juvenile couples, prohibiting them from participation
in the 2009 Junior Festival in Blackpool . It was claimed that the organiser was interfering with Italian domestic affairs
when it is clearly obvious that it is exactly the opposite, FIDS are interfering with the domestic affairs of Great Britain
This deplorable ban, many people having already booked flights and hotels, has obviously caused great distress to children
and parents. Making matters worse is the declaration of solidarity, again on the FIDS web site, from another IDSF member body
in Russia supporting FIDS and additionally the sending out to all IDSF member bodies by the IDSF Secretary on behalf of the
IDSF President, details regarding this dispute, most of which are totally inaccurate. The reasons given for this unsupportable
and unjustifiable ban are untrue and wholly irresponsible causing damage to relations between organisations and disgraceful
distress to dancers and parents.
The British Dance Council is especially troubled that, in view of the wonderful relationship between itself and the IDSF
since the foundation of the ICAD (now the IDSF) in this matter no contact was made to ascertain the true facts. We sincerely
hope nothing like this can happen in the future.
DUTCH OPEN 2008
Yes we were there again - this is our fourth year running - to watch all the excitement and the drama and the wonderful
music and dancing of couples from all over the world.
Here are some of the moments. Professional Latin Dutch Open - Riccardo and Yulia - What an amazing couple to watch
close up - exciting, exuberant, exhillarating, a powerhouse of musicality and movement.
Professional Ballroom - Jonathan Wilkins and Hazel Newbury from England - exquisitely elegant and vibrant in their dancing.
Dancing their famous leap in the quickstep - Domenico Soale and Gioia Cerasoli came second.
