The concept of strictly come dance not just in television. An amateur dancer lets his professional teacher help him to step into the competition world of dancing. But those amateurs are working very hard and regularly to improve and dressed like a professional it is hard for an unexperienced specator's eye to tell the difference to a professional dancer.
8th Dance school Championship with international participation - Dance school students have their first experience in a competitive dance floor
It has become a tradition to run a competition for our dance school pupils, so that they can match each other on a dance sport level. In a so called classification round they are split up in two groups, making sure that absolute beginners and advanced dancers will be judged separately.
For some years already a lot of excited dancers from Tirol and the rest of Austria, as well as Germany are coming to Innsbruck and have their first exciting experiences on a competition floor.
