Patrick Rucinski and Ella Nusenbaum Canadian Champions
will perform on
Sunday August 30th 2009 Tickets: $10
Patrick Rucinski and Ella Nusenbaum dance together for over 4 years. They started
dancing together in February 2005. Patrick and Ella are both 16 years old and dance
at the championship level in the Youth division.
Patrick and Ella have competed in many notable competitions across Canada, the U.S,
and Europe and have obtained several prominent results. The couple has represented
Canada at 3 distinct World Championships; in Latvia, Ukraine, and Spain. They are
World Junior Latin semi-finalists and World Junior Standard quarter-finalists.
In November 2008, they came into 1st place in the Junior Championship Standard
category and 2nd in the Latin category at the Ohio Star Ball, one of the most
notable and largest competitions in the United States which is also televised as the
"America's Ballroom Challenge”. In March 2009, Patrick and Ella travelled to
Columbus Ohio to compete at the Arnold Dancesport Classic competition. They placed
1st in both latin and standard at this exceedingly renowned competition which is
promoted by the Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Virtually a month later, in April,
the couple competed at the Canadian Amateur Closed Championships held in Montreal
and placed 1st earning the title of Youth Canadian Standard Champions. Winning this
year’s Canadian Closed Championships entitles the couple to represent Canada at the
World Championships held in Latvia, Riga this coming December.
Patrick and Ella will continue to compete and represent Canada in competitions
across the world.
Dances Cha-Cha: During the 1950's, the Cha Cha was made famous by many Latino bands. Cuban
in origin, the Cha Cha rhythm is found in the much of today's popular music.
Samba: The Samba originated in Brazil. Unlike the other Latin dances that are
stationary, it has a traveling action around the floor with lots of spins and
Rumba: The Rumba is a Cuban dance and is often referred to as the "dance of love."
Sultry and romantic, the music is a mixture of African and Latin rhythms.
The Paso Doble is a theatrical Spanish dance that characterizes the man
as the matador and the lady as his cape. Based on Flamenco dancing, the character of
the dance is arrogant and passionate.
Jive: The Jive is a very fast, acrobatic, and lively dance made popular during WWII
by swing music. It is danced quite bouncy with very sharp foot kicks and "flicks".
