Thanks to Henri Thibault
for suggesting me the idea of making this section with descriptions of
BALL ROUTINE from 1996
This is in my opinion one of her best routines, is not the most difficult
but makes you feel the emotion from the start till the end. It has a charming
and dramatic music that Alba expresses very well, as always, passionate
and so elegant. The long balances and the difficult catches characterize
the whole the routine. The ending is very touching, on a very flexible
position by Alba.
With this routine, Alba won a silver medal at the ball final of the 1996
It was her best performance at Atlanta Semi finals.
CLUBS ROUTINE from 1995
I specially like this routine
because it's the first one that I saw from Alba.
She uses the music "La Chica ye-yé" wich is a rock and roll very
famous in Spain during the 70s. Alba really expresses very well this piece
of music showing herself very happy during all the routine. The composition
is not as difficult as the more recent ones but it is very dinamic and
original, too. Alba executes it very cleanly, showing her excellent balances,
pivots and apparatus technic. Her movements are very fast during all the
routine, fixing perfectly with the music. She finishes the routine with
a very nice position and a big smile.
With this routine, she got her best score (9,350)
at the 1995 Worlds in Vienna and the bronze medal at the 1995 Spanish Chapionships
