A night of “Fantasia”
The last night of the United States Amateur Championships was like a night at “Fantasia,” the twinkling lights (cell phones) produced by the audience during the Viennese Waltz of the US Amateur Ballroom was as magical as the “Fantasia” movie, and as the couples danced to the 1,2,3 the audience waved from side to side giving us all a magical moment that could only be reproduced at BYU on a packed night at the Marriot Center in Provo, Utah.
Vegas Open Ends with a Strong 3
Vegas Open ended last night with 3 strong professional open events, 2 of them in doubt concerning the result until the end of each dance.
Translation: “Love Dogs.” It is very difficult to translate this from a “love” language like Spanish, and it is the only way it can really be described is as a passion, a seduction, a love and the carnivorous desire that Slavik Kryklyvyy & Karina Smirnoff served on the floor last night at the Heritage Classic.
It’s all in the Pants!
Yesterday at the New York Dance Festival the evening concluded with some excellent events, the Professional Ballroom and the Amateur Latin were terrific to say the least. In the past year we have noticed a very strange trend, some boys with good height and a tall build tend to look as if they have very short legs and during the Amateur Latin last night we finally had an epiphany!
A “Classique” Ending!
Last night there was a typical “Classique” ending to La Classique Du Quebec, with standing room only Arunas Bizokas and Katusha Demidova performed what we consider to be one of the best shows we have seen from a ballroom couple and crowned World Professional Ballroom Champions.
Platinum Warms Up!
Saturday things warmed up in Miami. The outside temperature moved back into the ‘70’s and in the ballroom at Platinum Dancesport, the open professional divisions were on display.
The Art of Seduction!
You either have it or you not……. When it comes to Ballroom dancing some couples have the art of seduction down, drawing you to them and making you, if you’re a judge, bring them back over and over and if you are the audience keep looking at them nonstop. Last night at the Maryland Dancesport the professional Smooth was a perfect example of dancing seduction.
The Bold and the Rhythm!
Last night at the City Lights Open, the conclusion finale of the Star Rhythm Tour and “saga” ended and from a healthy quarterfinal at the first competition the “Colorado Star Ball” it was all down to 4 couples left standing that qualified.
