Our greatest achievements


The Latin information of the HeeresSportVereins Zwölfaxing (HSV-12axing) was founded in 2002 under the umbrella organization of the Austrian Army Sports Association (ÖHSV). In the beginning, the dance sport section consisted of Latin information, which worked in close cooperation with the Schmid dance school in Perchtoldsdorf and the formation club based there. This cooperation ended in 2012 and HSV-12axing has been taking care of the youth work itself ever since. The HSV-12axing dance sport section currently consists of four Latin information teams(A-, B-, C- & D- Team), of which A and B-Team dance in the first Bundesliga. The C and D teams represent the club in the 2nd Bundesliga, while the All Girls team, founded in 2020, competes in the hobby league. In 2016, the "D-Team" started at a tournament for the first time, where it immediately danced its way to the top in the hobby league and has been dancing in the 2nd BL since 2021.

The coaching teams Natalia Tchemodourova-Ludwig, Markus Sónyi and Steffen Engel, from 2011 Stefan Herzog and Nicole Sheel - alias Sheila, then Stefan Herzog, Barbara Stamm and Isabella Purzner and currently Stefan Herzog, Daniela Riedl and Barbara Zederbauer contributed and still contribute a lot national and international top performances of the Latin information of the HSV-12axing.

Since its inception, the dance sport section has competed at the Austrian state championships and has been able to win the Austrian state championship title 16 times with its "A-Team" since 2004. During this period of time, the Vice State Champion title went to the B-Team of HSV-12axing, among others.

Internationally, too, the HSV-12axing is extremely successful and dances at the top of the world – in 2008 the final was reached at the European Championships in Essen for the first time. In the same year, the result at the home world championship in Wiener Neustadt was topped and the HSV team positioned itself in the international top field with 5th place. This place was also maintained at the 2015 and 2019 World Cup. Austria is one of the 3 best nations in the discipline Formation Latin. At the home European Championship 2022 in Schwechat, the A team danced their way to a sensational second place.

In 2003, the Danube Cup was launched as an international formation tournament, which has developed into the world's largest formation tournament series and will be held by HSV-12axing for the 20th time in November 2023.

In addition to the five Latin formations, many individual couples are also active and successful in the HeeresSportVerein Zwölfaxing.
