    So, it seems both Pro Rising Star events have been won by newcomers! Smagin & Kazatchenko just turned pro, and now Valerio Colantoni & Yuliya Spesivtseva, who were both pro before with other partners, have won in their first comp dancing together. What's that about?

    Thanks everyone for the congratulations. We are excited to be dancing blackpool for the first time, and definitely love dancing here. More dancing on wednesday for us!

    Results from Pro RS standard are up. The first place couple was very nice. I also liked the 3rd place a bit. It was a close match between 2, 3rd, and 4th place. Congrats to Lebedeve from Canada for making 5th, only couple in north america to do so.

    Interestingly, I noticed the winners of Senior Standard came in 6th for Senior latin! quite impressive to do 10 dance well!

    Congrats also. I like your blog. Just saw Olga Kinnard dance with her Pro-Am students and compete professionally at The Atlanta Open so it was interesting to read her interview.

    DanceBeat says Colantoni represents Russia. Is it true? I thought that he's dancing for Italy?

    Russia's dancesport website says that although Colantoni and Spesivtseva are listed as representing Italy, dancesport received information that the couple will be representing Russia

    Val and Daria made it into the final of the Latin Amateur. They took fifth place.
    Am so happy for them.

    And an equally impressive list also if you include the Latin people: Slavyk and Anna; Maurizio and Andra; Whatshisname and Melinda (not sure if they're in the program, though, it's kinda late right now), etc. etc.
