As in the past, Marcel is bringing a wonderful display couple to Lombok to perform dance shows. This year spectators will be wowed by World Champions in Classic Show Dance Ivan Kyrlov & Nataliya Smirnova from Moscow Russia.
Lombok will also have its own display of talent with Saturday’s Traditional Dance performances in the morning, followed by Artistic & Freestyle taking place in the afternoon.
It is thrilling to know that more than 20 couples from Lombok, will perform Latin dance, synchronic dance, and line dance in front of a fabulous international line up of Judges from all over the world.
These dance students aged from 6 years and upwards are part of a fantastic social program specialising in dance for young people.
The social dance program is funded by “Friends of Puri Mas” – namely the guests who are staying in Puri Mas Resort, and backed by Mr. Marcel De Rijk and the Lombok International School of Dance.
Marcel is a renowned international dance teacher and adjudicator who is passing on his skills by training these young people not only in the wonders and ways of dance, but through dance, they are learning confidence, balance, co ordination, discipline, timing, sharing and friendship which gives them a tremendous boost in life, school and a more positive future.
More than 16 countries will take part in the Ballroom & Latin categories naming a few – Australia, Italy, UK, Russia and Holland as well as the Asian countries such as Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, China, and of course Indonesia.
Guest of Honour.
The Organisers are also anticipating that the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Ms. Mari Elka Pangestu will attend with her family to present awards and prizes to the competitors as she did last year.
