Trainer Patrick Heuser at 2:19 "Both has in the training the same importance. We look on it, that we make dance sport and dance is the mayor point, but it is very good, because the difficulties are limited. For Example in the group 12 to 15 years there is a maximum of 4 estimates allowed. It could not become a gymnastic tournament, because the rules don't allow that. Today there was a few things, where I have tought it is trained away, but the nervousness and there is a camera there and in short we have to go to the stage so there are many things not so present, but I hope on the stage it will be.
