World Dancesport Series Pro-am Rhythm Scholarships Report by Didio Barrera The World Pro/Am Dancesport Series Rhythm divisions at the Ohio Star Ball were excellent, there were plenty of couples and all heats were huge, but it is not the amount but the quality of the dancing that made it special for me.

World Pro/Am Dancesport Series Latin Championships
Held at the Ohio Star Ball Report by Didio Barrera
Photos by Dance Beat I was pleasantly surprised that all the Pro/Am Scholarships had great attendance and in some cases terrific dancing.

A very beautiful couple to look at. I always admire the way this couple looks. Everything is done to the littlest details: dresses, hair, make up. I'm my opinion that’s how champions should look. Their dancing is very solid, but I think they should also work on adding more personality to their dancing and everything will fall in place.

Las Vegas – and particularly the Holliday Dance Classic is always a magnet - for dancers, spectators … and judges too.

This year the weather everywhere on the east coast caused the organizers some distress I am sure, with PRO/AMs, couples and adjudicators delayed and re-routed from different airports in the east at the beginning of the event. But the snow - eh - show must go on and so it did, with a beautifully decorated ballroom and charming organizers that are true professionals in every sense of the word. Thank you Wendy, Mary and Sam - also for having me!
