“Let's Dance is bigger, newer and more exciting”

Even if there are no Austrians among the 14 famous dancers in today's RTL dance show from 8:15 p.m., the country is well represented: former “Let's Dance” winner Victoria Swarovski moderates (with Daniel Hartwich) and with Vadim Garbuzov and Katherine. Menzinger, two Austrian dance professionals, try to perform their best with their student in front of the special announcer's camera.

After nine attempts, the 35-year-old Menzinger knows what is important: the Viennese team won for the first time in 2015 with former Wolfsburg player Hans Sarpi, and most recently worked in 2022 with circus artist Rene Caselli. Garbuzov, who is participating for the eighth time, is still waiting for a major success in the show, which has been a hit since 2006. ORF began the success story of “Dancing Stars” in 2005. This year, the broadcast was suspended, which has to save about 300 million euros between Years 2023 and 2026. Another season is scheduled for 2025.

It is still unclear who Menzinger and Garbuzov will take under their dance wings. The 14 celebrities include model Eva Padberg, “Bibi & Tina” actress Lena Larissa Strahl, “Bergdoktor” actor Mark Keller, “Höhle der Löwen” investor Tilman Schulz, and Detlef Soest, who switched sides in “Let's Dance.” . : In “Popstars” he played the strict jury, and now he has to face the strict jury himself. Group dances traditionally begin with the Viennese Waltz, Cha-Cha-Cha, Quickstep, Charleston and Tango.

In the interview, Katherine Menzinger, multiple world champion in the Showdance Latin and Standard categories, explains the big differences between an ORF show and an RTL show and what's important if you want to win: You have to win the hearts of the viewers. .
