We didn’t like dancing before


The UB post previously reported that ten year old Mongolian dancing duo, B.Tenuun and R.Uchral, won the Grand Prix in the juveniles’ ballroom category (6 to under 12 years old) at the World Dance Cup 2012, held in Shenzhen, China in July. These talented young dancers recently spoke to Unuudur Newspaper.

-Please introduce yourselves.
-My name is Tenuun Batbileg. I am 11 years old. I study at the Russian joint secondary school number 3.
-My name is Uchral Regdendagva. I am 10 years old. I study at Secondary school number 3.
-Did you choose to train in dance because you like dancing?
Tenuun: I didn’t want to be a dancer. My mother made me enrol in the dance club. I disliked dancing a lot before. Afterwards, I became good at dancing and was encouraged by my achievements in many competitions. I like it now.
Uchral: I didn’t like dancing either. My mother and teacher discussed it and signed me up at dance club too. I love dancing now. I move automatically when the music is on.
-What exactly didn’t you like at first?
Tenuun: I didn’t like standing in front of a mirror and repeating the basic movements over and over again.
Uchral: I didn’t like dance because I didn’t know much about it. So I was annoyed and nervous about it.
-What medals and successes have you gained?
Tenuun: I won a bronze medal from the State Championship and won three times in the city championship competition. I also won a gold, a silver and a bronze medal from national competitions.
Uchral: I am a three-time champion of the Ulaanbaatar city championship. I earned a bronze medal from the National Children’s Sports Festival.
-Which country was the strongest opponent in the World Dance Cup?
Uchral: Russian and Chinese couples were the toughest. But we had trained very hard since last year, so we were calm.
Tenuun: I thought “I must win.”
-I heard Tenuun had a different partner before. How was it to dance with Uchral for the first time?
Tenuun: It seemed annoying at first because we didn’t cooperate well. No we’re good friends.
-Uchral, how good dancer is your partner?
Uchral: He’s great.
-Which dances do you like most?
Tenuun: Waltz, tango, samba, and cha cha dances.
Uchral: I like the slow Waltz and the Vienna Waltz.
-What will you become in the future?
Tenuun: I will become a doctor. But I won’t quit dancing. My mother is a doctor and my father is director of a printing company.
Uchral: I haven’t decided yet.
