On the 12th of March 2005 UNIque Dance organised the Second Zwolse IJsselcup. It was a great day, with a great atmosphere, a lot of dancers, good music and sportsmanship. All in all a great success!!

This year the competition was an international one with competitors from The Netherlands, Germany and Great Britain.

George Tzoulas and Michael Hall Unfortunately the earlier announced couple from Hungary had to cancel due to illness. Hopefully they will be there next year!

In total we had 32 couples who registered, more than double registrations in comparison with last year!!

In addition to the Hungarian cancellation there were 4 other couples who cancelled. So there were 27 couples at the venue. About 20 couples danced Ballroom and 24 couples danced Latin.

The results will be  published on this website soon.

The competition was held in Multi functional centre De Bolder. A new location for us, which worked out very well. A nice big dance floor, 200m2, a nice bar, enough dressing rooms and free parking in front of the building.

Furthermore we had a highly qualified and international panel of adjudicators.

From Germany we had Mr. Rudi Marks. He's a world famous dance teacher and adjudicator, who's even well known in Shanghai and Japan. Also he is the former president of the German Organisation for Professional dancers.

From Great-Brittan we had Mrs. Marian Ward. She is an international adjudicator licentiate by the IDTA.

Last but definitely not least Mr. Piet Kuijmans from The Netherlands. Also an international adjudicator and licensed by the ISTD and IDTA. 

Presenting the whole day: Mr. Jacob Meijer, chairman  of ANDOS and EADO.
