Katrin Taseva's Dancing Clubs

I really like this new girl on the Bulgarian team who shows lots of flexibility and lots of personality, too. Born in Plovdiv, Katrin Taseva trains in Sofia alongside another young star, Neviana Vladinova.

I think Katrin's best routine this season are definitely her clubs. I was looking for a video from this month's "Margarita Rangelova" tournament but could only find videos of Neviana from that event, so here is a recording from much earlier this year. We can see a lot of potential with her pivots, some great risks and great musicality/dancing. I like the sparkling red colors, the expression on her face and how musical accents are worked into the routine.

HUGE THANKS to Dimo Dimov for these great photographs that help me "live" the routines with this talented gymnast!


  1. Why "Taseva" not Tasheva as elsewhere? Is the sound of the name ambiguous for English spelling?

    1. Katrin Taseva from "Levski" and Kristina Tasheva from "Akademik" are two different gymnasts. ;-)
