In fact, it was the organiser of the Maribor Open, Branko Bohak, who brought the two together in the first place. After he had seen Tatsiana dance at a tournament in the Czech Republic, he suggested that she and Zoran dance together. Tatsiana, the Belorussian 10 Dance Champion at the time, did not take long to consider the option and traveled to Slovenia without having seen Zoran ever before.
After training with Alenka and Branko Bohak, for all but three weeks, the newly formed couple won the Slovenian 10 Dance Championship and placed third in the Slovenian International Style Latin Championship. With a fourth place in the European 10 Dance Championships, also held in Maribor, their quest for excellence got off to a very promising start at the international level as well.
Zoran Plohl and Tatsiana Lahvinovich eventually decided to focus on Latin only. They moved from Maribor to Ljubljana and teamed up with another Slovenian trainer, Latin specialist Barbara Ambroz. The rest is history: the European and World Latin titles of 2011 had Zoran and Tatsiana attain their most ambitious goal.
As Zoran and Tatsiana told WDSF Communications in an interview after their win at the World Latin Championship in Singapore, they made an official announcement about their competitive future. The couple decided that they would dance in the WDSF Professional Division from then on.
