In Quincy, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 7th, over 300 people gathered at the New England Dancesport Championships with over 3500 entries. The crowd was on their feet for Radostina Gerova and Plamen Danailov as they performed a six–dance show based on Broadway hits. Their final number, “You Can’t Stop The Beat,” from the show Hairspray was a blur of energy and enthusiasm that left the crowd inspired and cheering for more.

Plamen and Tina started dancing together in 2000. They have been the reigning Fred Astaire National Latin American Champions for two consecutive years. They are four times undefeated as the Bulgarian Latin American Champions. Plamen and Tina were Rising Star Latin American Finalists at Blackpool and are regular finalists at almost every national Dancesport Championship. Tina is an instructor at the New York Eastside Fred Astaire Dance Studio owned by Marina and Taliat Tarsinov.

“Tina and Plamen were terrific to work with,” said Karen Green, the competition organizer. “In addition, they were so friendly and personable with the crowd.” They even took time after the show to chat with several members of the audience including a young man who had been a student of Tina’s in the past.

“Our compliments to Marina and Taliat Tarsinov for developing another top-quality, professional, and gracious couple,” added Kim Haidinger, the New England Area Director. “Tina and Plamen were another fine example of the wonderful couples associated with the Fred Astaire organization.”
