The GallaDance club held its fifth Media Dance Party 2009 – a ballroom dance contest for employees of media companies – at the Manezh Central Exhibition Hall on October 24. The event was staged as part of the Millionaire Fair exhibition. The contest attracted representatives from such media outlets as Cosmopolitan Shopping, Men’s Health, Shape, Elle, Sex & The City, Story, FashionTV, LisTV, Woman.ru and Interfax.
The competitors amazed spectators with their artistic talents. It was hard to believe that the women had attained such heights after only a few dance lessons. The participants themselves said they never could have achieved it without the high professionalism, care and positive teaching methods of the GallaDance club.
Beautiful representatives of Independent Media Sanoma Magazines Yulia Trushlya (fashion section coordinator for Men’s Health) and Nadezhda Krugova (fashion section director for Cosmopolitan Shopping) did a great job in defending the honor of the publishing house.
Yulia Trushlya and her partner Dmitry Astafev gave a fabulously beautiful and sensitive portrayal of the famous myth of Galatea in which a statue of a lovely woman is breathed to life in answer to the prayers of the sculptor, who has fallen in love with her. The pair took second place.
Nadezhda Krugova and instructor Alexander Pozdnyak were named the winners of the Media Dance Party 2009. Their performance was judged to be the most outstanding of the evening. The multi-colored mosaic from their Latin American dance made a great impression on everyone present.
We congratulate Nadia for taking the grand prize, and Yulia for her honorable second place finish.
