    It would be awesome if you could get Michael and Beata back since they backed out last year because of an injury. I was really looking forward to seeing them last year.

    Been loving all the responses we've been getting here so we've taken some of your suggestions to a poll on our FB page :) To vote/check out the results check out our DanceLegendsNYC FB (polls on the other styles are still to come ;))

    I would honestly be happy with the couples from last year :) I only got to see half of them, and I'd love to see them all again. Maybe you could get Slavik...? Would also very much like to see Franco and Olga. Liked the idea of the Hiltons as well.

    Loved Alain and Beverly and the mambo demonstrations last year as well!

    I would love to see Marcus and Karen, especially as I've never had the chance to see them dance in person. Michael and Beata could be great.

    A thought that just popped into my head would be Louis and Karina. They've both changed and grown so much since they competed together that it could be a truly phenomenal performance.

    As far as the event overall, I also find myself thinking about the differences between couples whose competition dancing I loved versus those who I felt did the best shows. Sometimes the two overlap, but not always.

    So far in our Standard poll on facebook William Pino & Allessandra Bucciarelli are in the lead followed by Marcus & Karen Hilton! If you haven't voted yet, we'd love to have your opinion and if you don't see the couple you'd prefer please add them as a choice!!
    The poll can be found here: [are links to facebook okay?]

    Coming up next will be our Rhythm poll which I know many of you are interested in so stay tuned :)

    I love Gherman & Iveta as showdance performers! Maybe consider other 10-dance couples?

    I would also be intrigued by Louis/Karina! Good suggestion, Professor SDSalsaguy!

    For those of you who went last year, what level of seating do you think was the best value for the dollar? Last year, there seem to have been seats ranging from $75/night (for Balcony 2) $1250/night (for front row VIP).

    Or to put it another way, if you went last year and plan to go again this year, what level of ticket do you plan to buy this year?

    I was in the fourth row because I'm, um, obsessed (yeah, that's the nice way to put it), but after seeing the venue, I think even first or second balcony would be fine to take in the show -- being that close was utterly exhilarating though, and I caught a lot of things I don't think I would have noticed in a higher up seat.

    I will just hint that the pricing structure has changed slightly this year ;) And that some of the better seats may be a better value under the new structure (particularly if you buy early).

    dlliba, loooove having such enthusiastic audience members :) hope to see you this year as well ;)

    I'm intrigued. When might this pricing information be made public?

    I will say that seats in the back did tend to cut off or obscure (via the railings) the nearest few squares of dance floor. When the couples were on that hairy edge, everyone in the section would start straining their necks to see, which meant that if you were way in the back, you'd almost have to stand. It was kind of sad when one of the couples would come up very close to the audience on the near side to do a picture figure, and you couldn't see what they were doing for a few seconds. That's a long time in a routine that's only a couple minutes long to begin with.

    Tickets will officially be on sale very soon (within the next two weeks), you all will be among the first to know I promise :D
