Ottawa’s rising stars of ballroom dance, Oksana and Yuriy Shelkovyy, again represented Canada at one of the most prestigious dance competitions of the year: The World Professional 10 Dance Championship, where couples competed in International Latin and Standard styles. Oksana and Yuriy were the first ranked qualified couple to represent Canada in the World 10 Dance in Austria this year and the only couple which actually resides and practices in Canada!
The event, which was held in Innsbruck, Austria October 18-19, 2014, was one of the three most prestigious professional dance championships in the world again this year. Competing dance partners, representing over 20 different countries, flocked to this destination Austrian city to participate. Ottawa’s own Yuriy and Oksana were one such partnership.
Yuriy and Oksana were thrilled to again be representing Canada at this prestigious competition. This year they bested their standing over last year and they came away very pleased with the results. It was a good showing for Oksana and Yuriy who are very proud to be chosen for this second time and hope to continue representing this country which they have to come to call their own.
See them compete below. Enjoy!
