And here are my last photos of Berlin Dance Festival. For me it was a photo preparing marathon this weekend. But now I’m ready and happy. The third day was as usual a little bit shorter. Only two competitions. The morning starts with 19 couples of the Europeans 10 Dance for Seniors I. And at the end the vice world champions 10 Dance Fabian Wendt and Anne Steinmann (photo) from Berlin won this competition. The victory in the second competition in latin dances goes to Bremen. The vice German Champions Daniel Dingis & Alessia-Allegra Gigli won all dances.

29.03.2024 - Berlin Open - Country- and Linedance in Hohen Neuendorf (Sunday)
Day 3 of the Berlin Open... On the last day of the tournament there was again Couples Dance, Linedance Open, Social and Classic to see. Dancing at the highest level. The awards concluded the tournament very punctually, to the delight of the participants who had traveled. We are looking forward to March 14th, 2025, when it will be time again: The Berlin Open starts!
Ute Hahn from Saxony (photo) was the only star dancer who presented her medley to the audience. Ute moved up to the Star Division at the Worlds last summer in Belgium. You could see that she was in her element when she performed her freestyle.

Here are the photos from day 3. Now all photos can be seen here in the galleries on my website.
