                                         *Edita & Samadhi*
                                     *The True Story of Edita & Samadhi*

Edita and Samadhi met in meditation studio in Berlin in 2004.

Coming from different backrounds - Edita being professional dancer, having long professional dance career and  many experiences in other dance and moving, yoga and martial arts techniques and concepts,
Samadhi having his succesfull professional career in boxing. 
To combine their body abilities with the spirit and strength of meditation, they saw great and rare possibility to merge their experiences to create and perform it as very speial, new, way of  dance.
Though, it has to be mentioned, that until this time Samadhi had no experiences in ballroom dancing at all. It would be compleately new, unknown field of experiences for him.

But the Idea was very strong. They decided to dance together and compete as professional dance couple in April 2004. 
From Juli 2004 they moved to London and startet to train in  London Grafton Regal Dance Centre.

With very little money, they had to find way to pay accomodation and studio costs, there was nothing to left to take some dance tuition or coaching, as other couples do.
They had to use their knowledge in best possible way to build the dance, to prepare from nothing to the competition level at highest at soonest time.

With concentrated and focused mind and knowledge the improvement was coming. After 3 Month!!! training, they entered already their first professional competition - The International Championships in London 2004. For Samadhi - it was his first competition in his life!!!

It was big proove, awaking to see reality. Then the problem was not dancing, but the "agressive" energy field created by competitors on the dance floor.

So far as being competitor for long time, we are used to it. But for the new person is it something - appearing agressive, disturbing dance. 

So there was the task how to get this experience into practice in soonest time to be able to deal with it. This was a long road of tryouts, misstakes, improvements, giving up, struggling with keeping bodies alive, to be alive, and still keeping dancing, luck of money to such state, then at the times there was no money at all.

But we had the will to keep going, like thin thread - connected all this pictures. And many times, like miracle, suddenly we got some money to pay entry to competition, travel. Sleeping on the airports, in the train stations, after competitions, because we could not afford hotels, totaly frustrated, leaving hall to the cold rainy night, with no idea where to sleep, being regected again and again and again.
Seeing "the others" in the fullfilment of goods, warm, smiling faces acompanied by friends and families.

But there was something, why we didnt give up. 

Going through this struggle, from 2005 we have somehow manage to enter the all important World Competitions and Championships. But the struggling with life was too immense. 

We just knew, what we do is highly good, right, and important, and we should keep the dancing, but we could not overcome the situaion of the failures on the competitions, not to be accepted by the dance field in the way to succeed. Difficulty to survive on life was drawing energy away, we didnt know what to do.

Journey to India Spring 2006.

At this point we decided to search for help of spiritual master and we manage to get 2  tickets to India. We could face life from totaly different point of view, and received great help and advice from many kind people. Returning back directly for Blackpool competition.

From this point thinks start to improve slightly. We returned back to Berlin, could find simple way to live and studio for practice.

Bit by bit we was moving forwards, keeping competitng, dancing, travelling.

From 2005 until 2008 we manage to enter about 60 Internatioal Professional  Championships, nearly all World Ranking Championships, World Professional Championschips 2007, 2008, Asian Dance tour 2008.

In April 2008 we come already on the place 51 in World Professional Ranking List. 

The meaning is: then In 3 years, someone who never danced before, could build up perfomance for place 51 in Professional World Ranking List - on his own abilities and powers.

Because of luck of money, we could never offer to take any single lesson or coaching.
