The audience was brought to tears, and even the judges were melting during this choreographed performance. The Hungarian contestant Christine Elizabeth Bérczes and her dog Meredith were on the American talent show America’s Got Talent. Read more about their endeavours below!
Christine Elizabeth Bérczes and her Australian shepherd dog Meredith got four yeses in the talent competition with a dance performance. The performance has been watched by one and a half million people on Facebook alone, reports Telex.
The judges of the seventeenth America’s Got Talent were absolutely blown away by Bérczes and Meredith’s performance, as the stageside host Terry Crews and people from the audience wiped away tears at the end.
Crass judge Simon Cowell even said that he believed there might be dance competitions in the future where people would enter with their dogs. Another jury, Sofia Vergara said she wanted to see more from the Hungarians. Everyone except Cowell gave a standing ovation at the end of the Beauty and the Beast performance.
Bérczes breeds Australian shepherds in Hollókő and runs a dance school. In an interview with NOOL, she said that she heard about dog dancing from a friend, took an online course in 2016 and has been teaching it online ever since.
“When I was a child, our family always had a dog, and even then I spent a lot of time with them, trying to make them obedient,” recalls Christine Elisabeth Bérczes. “My husband got me my first Aussie shepherd named Jack. Then, he got me to apply for a dog show and we later began breeding them.”
Bérczes completed a dog trainer course in 2016 and was introduced to dog dancing by a friend. The sport that can be translated as dog dancing is a very powerful relationship builder between owners and their pets. Only a few people had heard of it one or two years ago, but nowadays it is becoming increasingly popular.
“There are few dog sports in my county, and we are the only ones to teach dog dancing. Now more and more people are taking their dogs to the dance from all over the country. This activity can be practiced individually or in groups, and is a great way for both dog and owner to learn and relax,” comments Bérczes.
