Julia Musk (Ajax Eichwalde 2000): “Celebrating in Germany is just a hobby”

Frederick Fitz smoothly agreed with her opinion. “I felt unrealistic for me to represent Germany at this World Cup. We trained for a long time for this special year, which ended so quickly. Every drop of sweat and bruise was worth it in these twelve months of preparation to be part of the German team. It was an indescribable feeling for me to dance on the carpet in Orlando. Eleventh place completely exceeded my expectations, ”she evaluated the world championship from her point of view as completely happy and satisfied. In an incredibly strong field of participants, the world championship title went to the hosts of the United States, which was deserved. “This was to be expected, because the dancers rehearse twice a day in this line-up and work in a very directed manner. Cheerleading in Germany is just a hobby,” Muskie says.

The four Ajax dancers also had some sightseeing time in Florida. “Before our performance, we were of course rehearsing a lot and also watched other dance companies. After our performance, we explored big shopping malls, visited alligators in the Everglades from an airboat and also visited some of the world-famous Disney parks in Orlando,” said Weihrauch.
