Some of USA’s Best Attend Killick Klassik 2016

Once again the Killick Klassik, organized by worldwide dance icons, Paul Killick & Shirley Ballas, attracted many of the USA and Canada’s best dancers to Florida’s sun. The competition was once again held at the magnificent Boca Raton Resort just south of Palm Beach, Florida.  This Belle Epoque masterpiece designed by Adison Mizner and opened in 1926, sits right on the IntraCoastal Waterway. The beautiful ballroom is tastefully decorated to reflect the mood of this building and the food and service is of course, excellent as always.

Manhattan Dance Championships – it’s a “Must!”

 

There is no doubt in my mind that Manhattan Dance Championships is a “must” for serious competitors in the USA today and this includes all levels and grades. Organized by one of our highest profile duos, former World 10-Dance Champions, Gary McDonald and Diana McDonald, the competitive elements are all in place  - great panel of judges, good-sized ballroom and of course, plenty of competition in your heat!

Open Professional Divisions at Atlanta Open 2016

 

All of the Open Professional Divisions at Atlanta Open took place on the last night of competition and it was quite a marathon!  The two international styles had semifinals and the two American Styles had quarter-finals.  On top of this we had what I believe was an unprecedented “13-couple” cabaret final at the end of the night.

In the Open A, Natalie Crandall w/ Decho Kraev was the victor.

Natalie won all dances with the majority of 1st places.  2nd in all was Isabella Libertore w/ Charles Cunningham who picked up some 1st places in all dances and for the rest had mostly 2nd’s and 3rd’s.  Only judge Eugene Katsevman did not favor her, awarding 4 6th places and a 4th.

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.
