Our Summer Program starts on August 5

Starting August 5, 2019 Kristina’s Broadway Connection is offering again a diverse summer workshop program.

Already in the first week, we start with our Musical Dance Camp which combines acting, singing and dance training and gives you a glimpse into the professional world of musicals. On Friday afternoon you will present our small show to your parents.

For beginners aged 4-6 we offer our 2-day Combi classes. For 6-12 year old students aiming to improve their acrobatic skills we have our 3-day Acro Workshop. And for advanced dancers who are looking for a good work-out and technical refresher, we offer every Tuesday our 2-hour long Dancer’s Training.

DanceStar World Finals 2019

Successful World Championships with many Surprises

DanceStar World Finals 2019

Kristina’s Broadway Connection Competition Team, DanceStar World Finals 2019, Poreč (Croatia)

This year’s DanceStar World Finals 2019 in Poreč, the world championships of the ESDU, had several surprises for us. It started with the organisers telling us that the KBC dance family could not have their regular hotel and that we had to find a new one.

Two weeks ahead of the World Finals we got the next surprise with an advanced start time and many of our numbers in it. We had to quickly organise an earlier bus, to book an extra night for 85 people and many extented absentee/holiday requests.

Had the weather forecast been rather pessimistic ahead of our arrival, Poreč surprised is with mostly sunny weather which also gave us some nice pool time.

The good result of our Competition Team with 8 Gold, 14 Silver and 6 Bronce medals was not really a surprise, as this was the result of the intensive preparation during the last weeks. We were especially happy for Lara Opavsky and Kaveri-Ann Binder who managed to re-qualify in Poreč and got rewarded with a Bronce and a Silver medal respectively thanks to their high marks. Lara and the fourth placed Valerie Birkner showed a strong performance in the Lyrical Solo Children category with 29 dancers. Also the Open Solo Children category with 20 dancers was highly competitive and therefore the Silver medal of Valerie Birkner and the fifth place of Luna Schößler are quite impressive. Anna Trabelsi also showed a very strong performance with Silver in the 29 dancers large Lyrical Solo Seniors category.

The overall high points of the world championship judges are testament for the good work of our dancers and choreographers, as well as the focus of our teachers on technique and basics.

Special thanks goes also to all the parents that always support us so strongly at the competitions with make-up, hairs or the transport of the required props. We also would like to thank for the many photos, most can be found in our online photo album at www.broadwayconnection.at/medien.

Don’t Dream It.
Be It.
