The prestigious UK Closed competition in Bournemouth was such an exciting event this weekend with so many couples dancing beautifully, and it was amazing to see so many lovely Chrisanne Clover Couture dresses adorning the dancefloor! It was incredible to see many of our Sponsored Gold and Sponsored dancers placing fantastic results with our Sponsored Gold taking home the trophies for the Pro Ballroom and Amateur Ballroom!

'What a wonderful UK closed - our first in Youth! We placed 3rd in u21 Ballroom (with rule 10 for 2nd place) and 5th in Latin (rule 10 for 4th place and placing 2nd in Paso). We also made the am Ballroom semi final and had the pleasure of dancing to Ross Mitchell orchestra for first time on the Saturday evening. We are delighted with our results and so happy as placing in top 6 of youth means we are again invited to the annual BDF Youth Dance training Camp for 4th year (and as youth dancers on this occasion).

Thank you to the DPA for another wonderful festival ! Thank you to our amazing coaches and sponsors. We love you all and are so appreciative.' Mia Linnik Holden
