Tango, the Bulgarian Way

Neviana Vladinova rarely goes to big international events because of the crazy politics of the Bulgarian Federation.

But there are other crazy things about Bulgarians, and some of these things are amazingly positive and powerful. Like this routine. Here is gymnast who steps on the carpet perfectly ready to perform under the new Code of Points. Watch the intricate rolls of the ball, the on-the-spot dance steps, the risks, and arm movements:

I wish all new routines combined dance and athletics in this seamless, sophisticated way.


  1. Bravo. Unbleivable. You are like a magician. Other women hates you. For your beauty and flexibility. Have a good job. By.

  2. I preferred Staykova's classical ball-rolling myself. But I've only seen it once so far...

    1. I love Staykova, too! I wish she performed more cleanly. She could easily be number 2 on the team after Miteva. She just made the ball final at Baltic Hoop but I think she had errors in the other 3 routines.
