04.02.2023 - "Birds of a feather flock together"

What´s better than dancing a great show at the “Ball of Nations” in Munich? Dancing a great show at the “Ball of Nations” in Munich WITH FRIENDS!

“It is another step forward to what we think a modern Teacher-Student relationship should look like” Marius & Kristina said after they shared the show-dancefloor with some of their students (Eric Nitu/Andreea Toma & Andrei Petcu/Alexandra Motoc) for the first time. 

“Our support for our students is beyond teaching. We would like them to learn from our habits and to get to know and, at the end, to live the life of a real professional”. 


So together with their students Marius & Kristina created something great which we would like to share with you as well. Check out the link

01.01.2023 - Same Same, but different

"Our roots are in Pforzheim and will remain here"
The news hit like a bombshell: It was announced that Marius & Kristina had left the Schwarz-Weiß-Club Pforzheim. But even though the top performing German couple will now be competing for the TSC Rot-Gold-Casino Nürnberg, they will still be staying in their hometown in Baden-Württemberg. Both on a private and professional level.
Since they began their dancing career together in 2014, Marius & Kristina have been among the figureheads of the Schwarz-Weiß-Club. Now, however, the joined journey has come to an end. "This step was not easy for us. At a certain point, however, it was unfortunately unavoidable" Marius & Kristina say, but emphasize their deep gratitude for the support they have received from their former club, from the Landestanzsportverband Baden-Württemberg (TBW) and from the city of Pforzheim over the past years. For 14 years Marius had represented the Schwarz-Weiß-Club at national and international tournaments, the equivalent of half of his life and two thirds of his dancing career. During this time, he won over 75 important international tournaments and became German Champion ten times. Seven times together with Kristina, with whom he also brought one World and two European titles in Latin American dancing as well as a European title in showdance Latin to Pforzheim. "Without the team, the club and the TBW, these successes would not have been possible. That´s why we are incredibly grateful for everything we were able to experience during this time together and would like to remain club members"
For the native Romanian and the native Ukrainian, the Goldstadt has long since become home, especially because of the many fond memories the two associate with it: "The Goldstadtpokal as our home tournament with its special atmosphere and all the great emotions will always be remembered and stay deep in our hearts." That´s another reason why the two don´t want to pull up stakes here - even though they are now dancing for Nürnberg and the Bavarian national association. "Our roots are here and will remain in Pforzheim. In the future, too, we would like to work well and amicably with everyone in and around this city."
A new professional project that the two have already set in
motion will bring them a little closer to the city in the future. 
So, the future plans of the world champions, whose hearts beat for the city of gold, remain exciting.

24.12.2022 - Merry Christmas

Marius & Kristina would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy Holidays.
It was an exciting year with one highlight after another. So now it is time to recharge and preapare for what is to come in 2023.
Have a great time with your family and loved ones!
Kisses, Marius & Kristina
