On March 7-8, Kyiv exhibition center «АССО International» (40-B, Peremohy Avenue) will host ХХХІ Dance Sport Festival «Parade of Hopes 2020», Ukraine’s oldest dance sport festival. With support from the Foxtrot Group of Companies and Gennadii Vykhodtsev, Fedorchuk Dance School is preparing a traditional holiday of sports and elegance scheduled for the first spring weekend of 2020. The organizers are gathering an international panel of judges from Ukraine and Europe, and preparing high-level services: a spacious hall with the dance parquet floor, comfortable changing rooms, styling, hairdressing and photography services, a café and a sports dance shop, a show by dance sport stars and the special competitive atmosphere.
During 2 days the participants will compete for 300 sets of medals in 36 categories of European and Latin-American programs, including such basic ones as «Children», «Juveniles», «Juniors», «Rising Star Juniors», «Youth», «Adults», and «Seniors».
The Parade of Hopes 2020 foxtrot dancers will traditionally compete for the Foxtrot Cup. For the 18th time, the Foxtrot brand will reward the best performance of the dance rhythm, plastic movements and patterns. The cup of this kind is unique for the Parade of Hopes, it has no analogues either in Ukraine or abroad, according to the organizers.
– Foxtrot is considered the most elegant dance in the European program, says Valentyna Fedorchuk, head of the judge panel of the Dance Sport Association of Ukraine, honored coach of Ukraine and founder of the Parade of Hope international competition. I am grateful to our partners for the chance to include the Foxtrot Cup competition in the program, which is not in any other dance sport competition program. The best sportsmen compete for this cup! For instance, last year it was given to inmates of the Kyiv club «Аlta» Yelyzaveta Perepelytsia and Dmytro Rodin, three-time dance sport world champions.
– This year’s Parade of Hope is opening the spring to all the lovers of dance as a sport and an art, says Gennadii Vykhodtsev, Chief Executive Officer of the Foxtrot Group of Companies, who has been the general partner of the competition for 18 years. – We’ve been supporting dance sport development in Ukraine, and we are proud that our partnership with the tournament has come of age. – We’ve been enjoying the true friendship and cooperation with the famous dance festival for 18 years.
Over the years the Parade of Hopes organizers have been maintaining a tradition – every participant receives presents and leaves the tournament happy. That is why at the very start, when the long column of participants is entering the dance hall, all of them receive presents – beverages by TM Sadochok, PepsiCo Ukraine. TM Gulliver Country, a good friend of the festival, has been taking care of the youngest participants by giving them cuddly toys.
