Dancing the night away at the 2018 Asia International Dance Championships
More than 800 ballroom and Latin dance enthusiasts performed at this year’s edition of the Asia International Dance Championships that took place in Hong Kong a few days back.
With a wealth of talented dancers showing their moves in tune to foot-tapping music, the event was not one that dance aficionados would have given a miss! Indeed, all the who’s who of Hong Kong’s elite descended at HKCEC including distinguished guests like Prof. Anna Pao Sohmen, Karen Chuang, Lynn Hsieh, Michelle Ong Cheung, Rosanna Gaw, Monica Wong, Betty Sun, Ronald Lu, Patrick & Lucy Wang, Vivien Chen, Yumi Honda, among others.
After several rounds of fierce competition, the coveted ballroom championship – and of course, the US$100,000 prize money – went to Victor Fung and Anastasia Muravera from the US. The Latin championship also went home to an US team, represented by Stefano Di Fillippo and Dasha Chesnakova.
Indeed, with all the allure of dance and physical prowess required for sports, the Asia International Dance Championships are fast gaining popularity for raising the entertainment quotient each year. It’s time to put on those dancing shoes and waltz into glory, we say!
