Platinum Dancesport, hosted by Igor & Polina Pilipenchuk, holds the distinction of being the closest competition to my home on the NDCA Calendar. In fact, from Igor & Polina’s spectacular hospitality suite at the Hilton Downtown Miami, you can see my apartment building! That said, you can perhaps understand why I am biased towards a winter competition in my home town. Even though the weather was a little chilly for us Floridians on the first day of the competition, those traveling from points north all told me, “you should see what it’s like where we live!” No thank you! The next day temperatures outside were back up into our winter ‘70’s and many of the competitors were able to take a break from dancing to explore downtown Miami or cross the causeway to South Beach.
