I’ll Have a Slice Please!
There is nothing more annoying than to go to a pizza place ask for a slice and they give you a pot pie! Last night was the finale for the Tri-State Championships and it concluded with the “Best of the Best” competition but on the professional level, the four styles’ champions were invited to perform a solo of their choice all but the Professional Show Dance, I supposed that is not really a style that is just an add on! That’s what I tried to explain to Travis & Jaimee Tuft who won that division and who sounded a little disappointed to not be invited. Had they danced the outcome of that event might have been a little different.
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.
