WELCOME TO AIDA! 
Welcome to 2009!
 
I would like to welcome you to AIDA - the Amateur Israel Dancesport Association.  We are a national association with strong international connections and proud to be part of the World Dance Council Amateur League and the International Dance Union. 
 
AIDA has been fully functional for five years and has attracted top teachers and dancers in Israel.  Every year we provide seminars and workshops at all levels for teachers and dancers.  Our best dancers represent Israel at some of the most prestigous competitions around the world. 
 
We hold competitions at all levels around the country including National, International and World competitions.
 
I hope this site is of service to you.  Please contact us for any further information regarding Latin and Ballroom dancing.
Ms. Patrice Perez.

WDC Italian Open Professional Standard
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.
Finalists in World Championship Ten Dance Under 21 - First and Third place went to Russia, Second and fourth to Italy, Fifth to Israel and Sixth to Denmark. 
אליפות עולם 2009 עשרה ריקודים תחת גיל 21 ביחד עם "איטליאן אופן" שכוללת תחרות WDC סידרה למקצועניים גם בריקודים לטיניים וגם בריקודים אירופיים.

 

שופטים מהמפורסמים ביותר כולל אוגוסטו שיאבו, מסימו גיורגיאני ואליסיה מנפרדיני, קטארינה ארזנטון וג'רי אברטה, סרגי רופין וסרנה לקה, אנדרו סינקינסון ועוד.

 

היו גם תחרויות בתחום ה"שודנס"  SHOWDANCE - - גם בחובבנים וגם במקצונים – מדהימים לראות.  אבל הכי על רמה הייתה הריקודים האירופאיים בכל הרמות פשוט גמרים קרוב לגמר בלקפול.  היינו מהופנטים מהריקודים המקסימים של כולם.

 

שלושה ימים של תחרויות ויומיים של קונגרס ואחרי הכל משחק בין לאומי של כדור רגל – שתי קבוצות – אנגליה ורוסיה עם אנדרו סינקינסון נגד איטליה עם אוגוסטו שיאבו.  היה לי קשה להאמין אבל הגיעו במיוחד לשחק כדור רגל ממדינות אחרות כמו אנגליה וגם אנשים ברמה כמו גוזולי וסלמי לשחק בשביל איטליה.  כמובן שאיטליה נצחה.  הם עכשיו מתכננים משחק בין חמש ארצות כולל אמריקה.

 

אנאבל פרז ואיליה מיאסניק ייצגו את ישראל בכבוד רב באליפות עולם עשרה ריקודים במקומ חמישי, וב"איטליאן אופן" היגעו למקום אחד עשר בamateur latin  אחרי שלא האמינו שעלו לחצי גמר.  היה כבוד גודל כשהציגו אותם בחצי גמר כזוג מישראל ודגל ישראל היה באולם עם עוד 21 ארצות.

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.

PRESIDENT

BRYAN ALLEN
