Junior II Latin

This marked a “double” for the Washington based pair Erik Linder & Rickie Taylor....

1.  Erik Linder & Rickie Taylor (WA) 1,1,1,1,2.  Erik & Rickie are a very successful 10-dance couple.  For me the Latin is their weaker style in that it is a little lacking in passion.  I would also like to see more precise leg action from Rickie.  That being said, I thought they were worthy winners today.
