introduction of the 2018 season

introduction of the 2018 season

Dear majorettes, ladies and gentlemen,

a few days ago it was not just the end of another calendar year, but also of the competition year, with the International Federation Majorettes Sport (IFMS) being the fifth. If we look back on that year, we can say that it was aboth challenging and successful season. We were very pleased with the number of formations in all international competitions.Increasing interest indicates a well-defined direction that leads to higher performance levels of competitors in all disciplines and age categories. International comparison of performances is the best way to unify the majorettes sport. I would like to thank this way once again all those who have contributed to this trend.

The World Championship is the culmination of the entire season. IFMS Leadership selected for its organizing Prague, Capital of the Czech Republic. This choice was deliberate. I dare to say that the Czech Republic is one of the longest-running countries in the history of majorettes sport. After all, the phrase “majorettes sport” was created here and it was given the basis of the rules for this contemporary sport destined especially for the girls.The advantage for the organizing of this top competition in Prague is that we can fulfill WCH with a high-quality performance level in those disciplines and age categories that are not sufficiently represented by foreign participants. The Czech Republic covers the largest portfolio of participants but is also a guarantee of quality.

It’s great that majorettes sport spreads through Europe, Asia and other continents. I believe that there is not far the time when the ratio of participants will be balanced and the World Championship will be in the capital of another country; moreover, the rising level of foreign participants gives evidence to their being placed on medal places.I would like to thank once again this way all those who are interested in majorettes sport from countries all around the world who have an eminent interest in participating in IFMS competitions or are only becoming acquainted with the majorettes sport. They bring not only to us but also to the competitions new impulses and insights. We use them to improve and complement the disciplines following their incorporation into the competition rules.

Our goal is to organize regularly or co-organize contests in majorettes sport on all world continents. We know it’s a demanding journey. We can gladly say that the European Championship or the Grand Prix held under the IFMS heading brings its fruit; becoming a tradition and mapping and expanding the fame of majorettes sport. I thank the Polish, Croatian, Russian, Czech organizers and expectant organizersfrom Bulgaria and Kyrgyzstan for support.

We are trying to establish new contacts, which is a long-term activity; joining an existing performance class is not easy for emerging clubs. IFMS support for new adepts is given; IFMS sends the best-experienced experts-lecturers of majorettessport into the countries that want to join majorettesaction (e.g. Belarus, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Croatia).
To promote and improve the understanding of the majorettes sport there are introduced online broadcasts with sports commentators. Thanks you all the current commentators who took the job. At the same time, it is also a challenge for new candidates, do not hesitate and log in (contact info@ifms-majorettes.com), our vision is that commenting will be also in other languages.
The future in the area of better awareness is in facebook. For this purpose, individual member states delegate its moderator; his/her role lies in publishing of information and interesting things from the area of his/hercompetence.

I look forward to meeting you again
Good luck, Josef Doležel

Seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants in Pazardzhik City

Seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants in Pazardzhik City

A seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants (28 persons) and majorettes (34 persons) in Pazardzhik City, Bulgaria, this time for the organizing city of Grand Prix

Bulgaria is a country with strong historical and national roots, in the area of music and dance it expresses its relation to folklore and national costumes. At the time of our stay we were able to see a folk ensemble testing. With admiration, we watched devotion, humility, respect and joy from the demonstrated show.

Seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants in Pazardzhik City (2)Majorettes sport, its rules and practical examples of elements and choreographies are very different from national traditions. While folklore preserves the treasures of the past, Majorettes sport responds to the feelings of the young generation, to their movement and musical diversity, variety in clothing, makeup and haircuts.

If we can compare though only the short-term development of Majorettes sport in Bulgaria, then as the basis can be used the first participation of the Mystery Pazardzhik Majorettes, the IIIrd year of the WCH in Prague and repeat the words of club chief Mrs. SlavaAndonova “We are here for the first time and we are aware that we do not have to win for the first time, but we want to look at the performance level and level of the organization and can think about it for the future.” Seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants in Pazardzhik City (1)At the Vth year of the WCH, the Bulgarian anthem for the winner yet sounded, the 1st place in the pom-pom event, the solo event, the age category of the senior, and that is a big challenge. Motivating was also the placement of the group of seniors in 3rd place.The achievements achieved by the Mystery can be inscribed to the interest of both the charges side and the support of the Children’s Complex, which is led by Mrs. EmiiyaSpasova, to the support of the city and, last but not least, to the quality seminar with the Czech leaders of Majorettes sport held last year.

This year’s seminar is important for the preparation of clubs to participate in the Grand Prix, from 8 to 10 June 2018,Pazardzhik City will belong to the Majorettes sport. The participation of trainers and clubs chiefs at the seminar focuses on a better orientation in the rules and a practical part then on a qualitative shift in training and understanding of Majorettes sport, with the result of possible participation in international competition on home soil.Seminar for trainers, chiefs, assistants in Pazardzhik City (3)

Grand Prix in Moscow 2017

Grand Prix in Moscow 2017

The Grand Prix Majorettes Competition took place during the Avangard International Sports Festival days and the days ofAvangard OPEN CUP Moscow Dance Olympics. Moscow is equipped with many sports centers, one of which is also the CSKA Moscow, the venue for this year´s Grand Prix. The center itself is equipped with many spacious halls with grandstands, which is ideal for competitions with high numbers of participants. Mr. Andrey Kokoulin is an experienced organizer, and the inclusion of the Majorette competition into the joint program can be positive; dancers can watch majorettes with different kinds of equipment, and majorettes can watch dancers with different movement elements. Participants can thus enrich each other in both the movement culture and the musical or clothing culture. Mrs. Maria Shamina, who was in charge of the Grand Prix organizing, is also a coach of majorettes competing in a block for beginners and actingpublicly only for the second time.

Negotiations at the level of representatives of participating federations and guests were important. The subject was both the current state and the further development of the Majorettes Sport. Conclusions of the negotiations will be gradually published in order of how they will be implemented.

Medals and souvenirs

Medals and souvenirs

Design and original appearance of medals & ribbons for the fifth anniversary of the event this year were carefully selected for the
occasion. They were produced using more complex manufacturing methods with longer production times & higher costs than previously.
The printed ribbon design appears delightful and striking. White colour symbolises peace and purity of the majorette sport which is also
underlined by the use of dove with olive branch in the form of understated emblem.

The dove motif features on both sides of the medal in the upper part among majorette batons, moreover it the shape of a heart. Another unique design feature used this year for the first time is the combination of incisions and protrusions on the medal to create image of 5 batons to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Championships. The host capital city of Prague is referred to on the medal by a square shaped logo.

The ribbon colour scheme was also used as a pattern for design of the V. World Championship Majorettes Sport souvenirs and commemorative items.
