Tweed dancers bound for China

TWEED dancers Rhett Salmon and Kristie Simmonds are about to showcase their skills overseas.

The pair are heading to China on July 14 to compete in the Star Championships against couples from all over the world.

Mr Salmon has previously danced in England, Denmark, Sweden, Italy and Singapore.

“We have been training hard for the competition,” Mr Salmon said.

“We train six days a week for three hours.”

Mr Salmon said the three-day competition will be the ultimate test of his dancing skills with partner Ms Simmonds.

“It will be a great competition; the best of the best will be dancing there,” Mr Salmon said.

The Tweed dancers are currently riding high on their successful performance at the National Capital Dancesport Championships.

“There were over 60 couples competing in our section and we were one of seven couples to make the final,” Mr Salmon said.

“We came fifth in the final; it was our first

competition dancing

together.”

Mr Salmon and Ms Simmonds will continue their rigorous training regime in China in preparation for the Star Championships.
