 On February 28-29, the Yerevan Open Sport-Dance Championship will be held for the first time.  The president of the Pan-Armenian Dance and Sports Council, Mariana Mamyan announced today.

 Representatives of 7 countries will take part in the championship.  According to the president, this time the participants will compete in ball dances (in major tournaments they usually compete in Latin and ball dances).  On February 28, juniors and youngsters will compete, and on February 29, adults will compete. The championship will take place at the Neptun Sports Complex in the South-Western district of Yerevan.

 International referee Ilya Uvarov and double world and European triple champion Arsen Aghamalyan also participated in the press conference.  The latter will perform demonstrative dances.
