*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,
But the Idea was very strong. They decided to dance
together and compete as professional dance couple in
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.
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
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.
Some of our
results and competitions:
3. Place in Czech Open Professional Championship 2005
4. Place Slovakian Professional Championship 2007
Semifinalist (Place 11) of European Professional Showdance Championship 2007 in Balingen, Germany, with own Choreography "New Dimension"
Place 42. World Professional Ballroom Championship, Blackpool, England 2007
Place 41. World Professional Ballroom Championship, Bonn, Germany 2008
Place 51. WDDSC - Professional World Ranking Place, May 2008
We didnt become World Champions yet, and we didnt get any money or reputation for - giving up our lifes for our dance dream.
So why we was doing it?
Because there was fire - fire in our hearts. And we knew we are giving our lifes for something very highly important.
For next - pioniers - for next Era - then they are NO LIMITS.
NO LIMITATIONS to our abilities. How ever - The Mission, The circumstances can be difficult.
To open "New Dimension".
"New point of View" - what success means.
Never loose the dance fire in the heart.
Always strive to reach The Highest Possible Place and Choice.
THE HIGHEST possible PLACE and CHOICE.TH
