Diamant-Auszeichnung Corvin Frantsits

Diamond Award for Corvin Frantsits

In additon to this great result of all our dancer, we witnessed also three special awards:

For many years Corvin Frantsits was a student of KrisTina Decker where he gathered a lot of experience and inspiration. His self-choreographed Tap solo received one of only four Diamond Awards (awarded for dances with 110 or more points – out of 120)!

At the same time his dance achieved the Highest Points in his age group “Juniors II”!

From the Board of the ASDU, our Academy Student and Teacher Wei-Ken Liao received as special award for his long career as successful competition dancer and an “Exceptional Artist“!

KrisTina Decker is proud and thankful to work with so disciplined and talented kids and youngster and congratulates all of them to the success at the Austrian Open 2010! You are the Stars …

Don’t Dream It.
Be It.

We would like to thank the choreographers Sharon Booth, Blair Darby and Wei-Ken Liao, and the organisation team Gabi Reithofer, Karin Reithofer and Gerlinde Nepp and the parents for the active support. And last but not least O2 alive for the sponsored refreshments!
