Change of Location, but Platinum keeps its Vibe!

For the past two years, Platinum Dancesport has been nestled in Downtown Miami, right on the historic Venetian Causeway and incidentally about five minutes from my house. Hotel issues forced a move for this one year only, but the EB of Platinum, Mr. Scott Washburn, was able to secure the organizers, Igor & Polina Pilipenchuk, a place in the Airport Hilton.
"Dance is a conversation between body and soul."
This is a comfortable hotel with excellent convention facilities and the advantages of an airport shuttle. It is a little further from the delights of South Beach, but I believe many intrepid competitors made the trip to my “hood.” Certainly we saw many of them (Sunday) the day after the event enjoying the sun and sand.
