Hi, I´m a competition dancer from Germany. Next year I stay a few month in San Francisco for buisness. I´m looking for a professional trainer for high level Latin & Ballroom international Style. Perhaps you can give me a hint.
My teachers are Tytus and Silke Bergstom. (She is from Germany by the way). They teach everywhere, Allegro, Stars, Pick Studio, and they are wonderful!!!! I'd contact Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville to get a number or watch them work.
I visit the German open Championships in Mannheim last week, but I see only two couples from the USA. Shvarts, Anatoliy - Golbert, Renata Professional Latin and Chmerkovskiy, Maksim - Togni, Samanta Amateurs Latin. So its very difficult for me to compare the level of dancing in the USA with Germany. I dance in the second highest amateur class ,and with a little luck at the next regional championships in September I move up to the A-class.
I look for a real high level trainer.(and a dancepartner?!? ) )I look at the webpage of the Metronome Ballroom but there are no infos about competition classes. I think also that a beginner class isnt the right thing for me.
I dont no much about the conditions and organisation of competitiondancing in the USA. Where can I get some informations about it? Perhaps it is possible to compete in the USA with a US partner.
I recommend Hannah Cole, or Mark Weise & Valentina Kostenko. I don't have their contact info, but you can get in touch with them through the Metronome Ballroom in San Francisco. www.metronomeballroom.com
Hi!!! I know this post is very old, but I found it 'cause I was searching on the web something about Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Samanta Togni They're no longer dancing together, but I know they danced in Usa some years ago.
Do you know anything else, or do you have any picture or video about them
