Artur Tarnavskyy and Gabriella Sabler Dance Rumba at 2014 Manhattan Amateur Classic Adult Latin Semi Final

Video of The Week: Golden Tips for Rumba

When a beautiful song is met with such a flowing, sensual routine, the result sends shivers down your spine. Watch Artur Tarnavaskyy and Gabriella Sabler connect in their Rumba from the 2014 Manhattan Amateur Classic Adult Latin Semi-Final.

The way they play with the song and each other is magical. They really sense each other on the floor and every move is on point. Not bad for a couple that’s been dancing for less than a year together! And those gold-tipped shoes complete the couple’s ensemble. Congrats on winning the Silver Medal!
