The students of the Broadway Connection are unbeatable! All 10 dances we sent to the European Open made it to the podium: they won 4 Gold and European Championship Titles as well as 5 Silver and 1 Bronze. One of our winning groups got so many points that they got promoted to the professional league.  That’s the great result of the Viennese Dance Studio Broadway Connection at the European Open 2005 in Musical & Showdance.

The European Open 2005 was the biggest Musical & Showdance Championship so far. Around 1,500 participants from 10 countries were in Linz/Leonding on the weekend of May 6-8, 2005 to compete for the European Championship Titles.

Already at the Austrian Open the team of the Broadway Connection scored: Next to 3 National Titles and 7 Runner-Ups, Michaela Pircher was awared Future Talent and KrisTina Decker was recognised for the Best Choreography.

“I am very proud of my students. After the great success at the Austrian Open, they proved their skills also at the European Open. The outstanding result of Gold and Silver Medals is the result of hard word and intensiv training. It is really important to me to cater to the needs of my students which is also the reason for manageable class sizes. Our professional teachers provide our students with a solid base for a future stage career, while ensuring there is still fun. I am really happy about the fact that after only such a short existence of the Broadway Connection we have so much success, this really promises a lot for its future. One can see that Vienna can easily compete with Musical and Dance Metropols like London and New York.” says KrisTina Decker, the founder and director of the Broadway Connection.

The next chance for our young talents to proof their skills will be at the “US Open“. Two of our European Open dances qualified and will compete in July for the World Championship Title in Las Vegas.

Don’t Dream It.
Be It.
