INTERNATIONAL RS CHAMPIONS
Dancing in their hometown of Bournemouth, in front of all of their friends, family and students, Andrey and Alexandra danced their final Ballroom competition before announcing their retirement. They took home the bronze medal in this National Championship.
"We would like to take this opportunity to announce our retirement from Ballroom competitions. We are not going away completely, as we are now looking forward to a new challenge in Showdance events. Over the last 14 years we have had an abundance of support from our family, friends, teachers, sponsors, and coaches, and we cannot put into words how grateful we are. We wouldn't be where we are today without them. A special thanks to our number one supporter who we know was watching over us on Saturday night and always 💞 Thank you to the DPA for running this successful dance festival, which has allowed us to retire in our home town with our family and friends around us."
