Last sunday we heard spesific news from TTK Finland covid-19 case which was why this show was on break. One dance student finalist -ex hockeyplayer Niklas Hagman- got the covid-19 and he decided to quit the competion. He was feeling so week and didn’t have energy to train anymore (still after the quarantine).
Luckily his dance teacher pair didn’t got infection but they were one of the winner favorites so it’s very sad they had to quit and just before the finals! Dance teacher Kia Lehmuskoski was weeping in tv when they were interviewed. They had eagerly waited the finals and trained hardly so naturally the disappointment was great!
I can imagine the feeling. I have also performed (in flow gymnastics and before that in cheerleading). Lately I have been wondering what if for example the WG -15 (the international massive gymnastics event) would have been canseled. https://tanssitytto.wordpress.com/2015/07/17/gymnaestrada-2015/
or SG -18 (national gymnaestrada event) would have been canseled.
It would have been very devastating to me and for all of us. We had been training about 2-3 years for both of those events. Field shows are so big spectacels so training must beginning at an early stage….So I really do understand the feeling of TTK-dancers!
Well, this Sunday is the 2.final show where the winner will resolves. Hopefully we don’t get anymore any devastating surprises and…
Devastating, for sure, but the right call.
Yes, you’r absolutely right!
