The editorial of dancesport.ru announced an information about a new couple which we are shortly about to see on the dance floor: Yuri Simachev and Yulia Remizova. They will be representing Moscow dance club Academy and compete in WDSF Professional division.
Their first competition together will be Russian Championship held on February 4th. They are preparing for this competition with their coach Yuri Nezdoyaminoga.
It is a debut in professional division for both dancers. Although both Yuri and Yulia achieved great results with their previous partners in amateurs. Yulia Remizova is a finalist of Russian Championship Latin 2017 with her partner Kirill Kolpashchikov and a winner and finalist of international WDSF competitions with her former partner Alexander Makarov.
Yuri Simachev is a Russian vice champion in Latin 2016, two-time finalist of WDSF World Latin Championship (6th in 2015 and 5th in 2016). He is also finalist od European Latin Championship in 2014, finishing in 6th place. Furthermore, he is two-time Russian Champion in Ten Dance, European Champion in Ten Dance 2010 and a winner and finalist of international competitions held in this category. All these results were achieved in couple with his step sister Anastasia Klokotova.
In 2016 Yuri and Anastasia decided to give a try to competitions held in other organization WDC. After an unconvincing result in amateur category in Blackpool 2017 they managed to take 6th place on German Open Championship in Mannheim. Yuri and Anastasia were not the only ex WDSF top couple receiving unsure results in WDC competitions. Similar thing happened to other Russian and also ex WDSF Latin finalists, Andrei Kiselev & Anastasia Kiseleva in 2015.
The last competition of Yuri and Anastasia as a couple was Adriatic Pearl in Dubrovnik in September 2017. Anastasia then decided to end her dance career and continue as a full time coach.
So now Yuri is coming back to WDSF. To increase competition in the Professional division. He’ll be competing again with Gabrielle Goffredo and Anna Matus, three-time world champions and his former competitors in WDSF main category. We are looking forward to see Yuri and Yulia on the floor!
