VN Latin-dance duo take 2nd (September 10, 2003)

Dancers Chi Anh (behind) and Khanh Thi.
Vietnamese dance partners Chi Anh and Khanh Thi cha cha cha'd their way past 24 other couples to take second prize at the Amateur Latin Dancers' Competition in Paris.

The competition is part of France's national conference of professional dance instructors, which draws dancers from all over the world.

The only Asian couple at the competition, Chi Anh and Khanh Thi won hearts of audiences and judges, who were from France, the UK, Italy and Turkey.

In the final round, competitors had to perform five dances, each lasting two minutes, with a 30-second break between trips to the dance floor.

"Though during the second dance, the samba, I slipped because I was not used to the surface of the dance floor, plus I was wearing new shoes," Chi Anh said. "We tried to balance our mood and energy to perform thorough to the last dance."

The couple will perform in Turkey before taking part in another international dancing competition in Le Mans (200km south of Paris) in December.

In preparation, Khanh Thi is designing couple's costumes herself.

Khanh Thi is a graduate of the Vietnam Dancing College, while Chi Anh studied at the National University for Social Sciences and Humanities.
