Good News from Australia

Our very own 64 classmate Philip Lee李榕堅 had won big in a dancing competition in Australia. The event took place on 25th March in Olympic Park. There were 18 couples competing for the Masters 2 Open events that they entered. Six rounds of dancing later they won first place in all dances which included 5 dances in Modern Standard and 5 dances in Australian New Vogue.

“We were really pleased with the results as there were quite a lot of changes in the choreography of the  Modern Standard style: Waltz, Tango, Slow Foxtrot and the Quicksteps although  the Viennese Waltz stayed unchanged. We practised very hard, sometimes 5-6 hours a day to internalise the new choreography. As late as yesterday we  were unsure if we could pull it all together for today's competition.
The idea of getting a good result in the Standard style in this competition is to satisfy ourselves that we can dance the new choreographies confidently so as to serve as a dress rehearsal for the Jupiter National Championship in Easter. The feedbacks from the professionals were very encouraging. They said that we danced with confidence and attitude, moved well around the floor and looked good. Tomorrow is back to the drawing board to rectify figures which we didn't dance so well as we could see in the footage of the competition.”
