BRIAN BARAKAUSKAS (article first published : 2005-11-14)

2005 World Line Dance Champion, Brian Barakauskas, will be in Durban to appear as part of the cabaret at a dance event on November 25.

Brian Barakauskas won the title in Nashville in January this year, and is getting ready to defend his crown at the next world championships in Sweden at the beginning of 2006. Durban will be one of the first audiences to see his new solo routine. Line dancing is performed solo when competing at a very high level and it has moved a very long way from its original image of “yeeha” and slapping leather. Brian also proves that it's cool for men to dance.

The superstar was specifically invited to perform and to give line dance workshops for local dancers in KZN, but such is the prestige of his visit that he has attracted instructors and competitors from Cape Town and Bloemfontein who will take the opportunity to avail themselves of his expertise.

From his home town of Louisville, Kentucky in the USA, Brian will touch down in Durban before continuing to Basel for the Swiss Masters Championships on December 2. Besides competing, he is also a dance teacher and certified judge.
