MY DANCING CAREER
Dancing with the Stars
I was only 18 years old and was in my final year of school when the request for the world-famous BBC “Dancing Stars” format arrived in Vietnam. 2012 I lived in Vietnam for 6 months and danced with Vietnamese celebrity Quách Ngọc Ngoan – an actor. We ranked 7th, despite the difficulties I faced. I managed to exert everything I could. He was a lovely guy, but he was not the most talented one (no sense of rhythm, no coordination, no conditioning). He wasn’t the most motivated participant either. There was very little time and desire to train. In addition, the language of communication was also a barrier for us because he only spoke Vietnamese. Without a translator, with a lot of patience and the right training tools, we still managed to dance 3 rounds and win 7th place. I am proud of his success.
Dancing with the Stars
2013 I participated again in the next season of “Dancing with the Stars” – Vietnam. This time I danced with the Vietnamese actor- Hoa Hiep. With whom we managed to rank 6th. We had a great time together as a team and were able to present our performances in Hip Hop, Cha-Cha-Cha, English Waltz, and Indian Dance. After we left the show in the 4th round I worked as a model and as a choreographer on additional projects.
In 2020 I participated for the first time in the Austrian ORF production of “Dancing Stars” and danced successfully together with football legend Andreas Ogris until the 6th show. He was the oldest of the celebrities on the show, and I had to take his physical health into consideration. We were publicum favorite couple and had the most votes. He did great job. I am glad I could get him to dance and expire him to take care of his health. A great friendship was born between us.
In 2021, I made it to the final of Dancing Stars with professional cyclist Bernhard Kohl. Just an unforgettable moment! At first, no one believed we would make it past even one round of the show, as he had never danced before. He was also not a crowd favorite because of his doping history. But despite the difficulties and uncertainties we made it to the final and took 4th place. I am proud that I was able to support him not only on the dance floor, but in his personal life and emotional growth. I will never forget our emotional last performance when the audience rose to their feet and applauded us wildly. just an unforgettable moment!
