Kremlin Cup: high level of Russian couples!

All the best representatives of sports ballroom dancing in Russia gathered on the floor to demonstrate the excellent level of training, the highest skill and bring unforgettable emotions to the demanding Kremlin audience.

The organizer is the Honored Art Worker of the Russian Federation, President of the Russian Union of Dance Stanislav Popov. The general partner is Gazprombank (JSC). Information Partner – “Soviet Sport”.

The fate of this year’s tournament was not easy.

– Previously it was planned that today we will host the European Championship, which has already been postponed several times due to the pandemic. But this time it didn’t happen for a different reason. Political events intervened. But we decided to support our dancers, give them the opportunity to perform in a big tournament, show their skills, dance on this wonderful floor. Therefore, an event with the symbolic name “Kremlin Cup – Pride of Russia!” is being held here today. This hall brought together the best couples in the country, as well as foreign dancers who were able to come to Moscow to participate in our event. These are representatives of Georgia, Croatia, Belarus, Armenia, Romania, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, – he said Stanislav Popov.

Professionals from the Latin American and European programs competed for the right to own the Kremlin Cup. Pro-Am pairs also performed at two events. And the amateur category was represented by Latinists.

The champions of Russia 2022, Kirill Belorukov and Valeria Aidaeva, became the winners of the Latin American program among professionals.

Valeria Aidaeva share your impressions of the competition:

– As always, very festive, beautiful, cheers up. Everything at the highest level. I don’t think that the fact that there are almost no foreign dancers affects in any way the scale of the tournament. The level of Russian couples is very high! For many duos, there was an opportunity to prove themselves in such an important tournament. Of course, for a dancer there is always more stimulation, adrenaline, when there are known rivals from other countries with whom we compete in Blackpool, in the United Kingdom. This, of course, always motivates more, adds excitement. But it’s great that we can enjoy this tournament today. I think the viewer saw a lot of Russian couples who, perhaps, could not, did not have the opportunity to express themselves before, but this time they succeeded. Therefore, the absence of dancers from other countries is both a plus and a minus.

Kirill Belorukov:

– All went well! The force was enough. I am very happy with our dance and the tournament in general. Today the atmosphere in the room was just fantastic!”

The silver medalists of the tournament in the European program between professionals Eldar Jafarov and Anna Sazhina were among the few couples representing foreign countries, they danced for Azerbaijan.

The act of give:

– This is a great time to get everyone together and dance in a tournament that stands by its name. And the place is historic. It is a great honor for all the dancers to perform here, including Anya and myself!


– I see how happy everyone is, everyone finally reunited, everyone with their families. I think this is a true celebration of life, a celebration of dance. So I support the words of Stanislav Popov: Dance and be happy!

Russian dancers Fedor Isaev and Anna Zudilina became the best professionals of the standard. The Kremlin Cup in amateur competitions on the Latin American program was won by Mikhail Popov and Anastasia Dubrovskaya.
