WINNERS OF AMATEUR LATIN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AND COST AND DIANNA WHO CAME FOURTH REPRESENTING ISRAEL

 
To all who attended and to all who missed out:-
AIDA organised one of the most spectacular competitions that we have ever seen in Israel - IDU WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2008 with thirteen participating countries. 
 
I wish to thank all those who participated from Israel and abroad and I wish to give a special thanks to all those people who were involved in organising this event on our behalf, in particular Igor and Tatyana Galiaga and their team in Maalot and especially the Maalot municipality who funded the entire event.
 
Top adjudicators from around the world arrived with their couples many for the first time in Israel.  Couples came from twelve different countries - Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and from all over Israel - to compete in an exciting two day event held in Maalot.  
 
The organiser Igor Galiaga together with a wonderful team from Maalot put on an outstanding production.  All our foreign participants dancers and adjudicators were wined and dined and given hotel accomodation, plus cups, cash prizes and presents.  The event was extremely lavish with dancing at a very high international level.
 
Thank you also to our president Mr Ilan Vaiman who has helped build international relations and encouraged many to attend this event.
 
To all our dancers, parents, teachers, fans and supporters thank you for continuing to raise the level of dance in Israel.  We are extremely proud of all of you.
Patrice Perez,
Sports Director.

One outstanding young Israeli couple came first in the Junior Latin at the World Cup 2008 in Petach Tikva.  We wish to congratulate Liaskovsky Artem and Dovgan Elena from Rishon.  This is another couple who have recently seperated and it is a great loss to the Isreali dance scene.  This couple had a lot of fans and we hope that both continue dancing.
 
National competition in Arad 2009 organised by Janna Ragotski
 
We have 30 dance schools across the country and dancers of all ages and all levels.  Our top couples represent Israel in international and world events.
We hold regular seminars and workshops with top instructors from around the world.

TO ALL DANCERS, TEACHERS AND ORGANISERS,
I am very pleased that AIDA - the Amateur Israel Dance Association has been approached by IDSA - the Israel Dance Sport Association asking for cooperation in competitions.  This has long been my main aim - to unite the dancers, dance teachers and organisers so that all of us can benefit from working with each other.
 
Unfortunately, IDSF - the International Dance Sport Federation has refused permission for this to happen. 
 
I wrote to IDSF personally and have received a negative reply from the General Secretary stating  "It is not a fine solution for the IDSF and our policy does not allowed  the way you proposed..."
 
It is a great pity that IDSF does not allow for cooperation between people when the willingness on our part exists I only hope that they will eventually allow us to dance as we wish for the benefit of all involved.
Patrice Perez. 
 
All across the country we have seminars for teachers, judges and dancers organised by AIDA and by our teachers together with top instructors from Russia, Ukraine and England in an endeavour to constantly raise our standards and keep up with the latest developments in both Ballroom and Latin.
Thank you to Valeri Zakcharchenko from Kiev for a wonderful five day ballroom seminar and to the organisers - Anatoli and Tatyana Treliski
