World dance champions Mia Linnik-Holden, 18, and Andrei Toader, 19, have added another title to their ranks after being named U21 champions of the London Ball competition.
The Middleton teenagers also reached the quarter finals in the ball’s amateur ballroom category at the InterContinental Hotel on Friday 1 October.
Their latest accolade comes after placing second in the U21 ballroom category of the 68th International Championships at London’s Royal Albert Hall last month, where they also reached the quarter finals in amateur ballroom.
Andrei said: “We are so happy to achieve such amazing results and are beyond delighted with our performance in the London Ball U21 Ballroom, and glad that our hard work paid off in the end.
“We want to thank our parents, team, coaches and sponsors for always believing in us and for supporting us to always improve and reach new limits.
“We are so grateful to all of you, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us for future competitions.”
Mia and Andrei, who is originally from Romania, have continued to top the dance scene since rising to the youth ranks in 2018. They first became junior world champions after their partnership began in May 2015, racking up numerous titles in both the junior ballroom and Latin ranks.
