We were so excited to go to Romania for the first time!! It is so cool for us to see where this dance is growing to; I never would have imagined that one day I would be traveling to Romania to teach WCS! We loved getting to meet this new community… They have so much potential and were so eager to learn everything they could from us while we were there. It’s always nice to see a new community’s hunger for knowledge of the dance 🙂
We were teaching alongside the lovely Adam and Rita from Budapest! It was really great to spend time with them and get to know them as teachers better 🙂 We really had a great time with the workshops and almost felt that they went by too fast and wished we could have had more time with the groups!!
This was the first time an event like this had occurred in Timisoara, and they are trying to grow this event to have WSDC points someday. Citadel Swing has a lot of potential, and we can’t wait to see where it grows to!
Our favorite part of the event was on Friday night at the welcome party. They organized a fun game with everyone at the event, called Knight with Shining Armor. It was really a fun 30 minutes of dancing and switching around with partners trying to collect the most stones for leaders and the most ribbons for followers. It’s a little hard to explain the game, but everyone got really competitive once they started figuring it out! It was really a fun atmosphere involving dancing with everyone at the party!
We enjoyed our time in Romania, and we hope we can go back again sometime 🙂
