    Let’s talk about that O1 Visa

    In the 2015 United States National Championships - Open and Rising Star Professional events - there were over 70 professionals who were at that time on the O-1B visa.

    Today, most ballroom dancers and dance teachers who are from outside the United States came here legally under the non-immigrant visa category of O-1 which is for individuals who have demonstrated “extraordinary abilities”. As many of you are already aware, changes by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in regard to the O1 are having a serious impact on our industry.  We understand that it is not just our industry, but all O1’s.  But the changes are taking a drastic toll on the dance industry.*

Keeping the event true to its name, the weather gods turned on the snow for my arrival and it was steadily snowing as I left the airport.
