    IMPERIAL and BLACKPOOL competitions 2012

    I don't know that much about international competitions, but I just look at the results for the Amateur Latin and Ballroom couples at the Imperial Championship that ended yesterday. In the Ballroom section I was struck by seeing 2 couples from China in the Final and 2 couples in the Semi Finals...

    I forgot to add that the day before the comp part starts, Ed Simon and Sam Sodano are holding an all-day Congress to discuss American Smooth: morning lectures on Rhythm and afternoon on Ballroom, with professional couples illustrating. Some superb speakers, including Rufus Dustin, David...

    Heritage classic

    Is anyone there who would like to give updates on Pro and ProAm competitions? It is such a big event and supershag is not covering it. It is always interesting to read the opinions of Dance-forum regulars. Larinda, are you there? Anyone else who could spare a few minutes to write? Many thanks.

    German ban

    Dancebeat has headlines about a ballroom couple being banned from competing at the recent UK competition. I read the article and companion piece by Peter Pover, but frankly, I still don't get it. What are they arguing about and why was this couple banned? Can anyone explain.

    NDCA meeting

    Someone told me that at the last NDCA meeting some complaints were aired about ProAms competing in Ohio who are also sponsors of that competition, and whether or not they are given an advantage. Does anyone know anything about this? (If this is not a suitable topic, then please do not post it).

    Post Comp DEPRESSION

    I know there was a thread on this a while ago, but I can't find it. I feel such a deep sadness, a sense of loss, having trouble concentrating at work, eating and sleeping. I suppose it will just fade away, especially once lessons resume, but welcome any nice, warm, caring, feedback. I envy...

    American Smooth

    I am surprised no one is talking about this -- and this is not gossip, it is all confirmed. The entire final at this year's USDC and Ohio American Smooth professional division is gone except for the current champions, JT Thomas and Tomasz Mielnicki. Eddie and Valentina: split Mazen and Irina...

    New Dance Beat

    Reading the interviews with Donnie Burns , etc. re the implacable and worsening wars between the IDSF and the WDC, well it makes for sad reading. Just as the ballroom industry is gaining popularity and respect, they seem to be imploding with jealousy, greed and venom. Will this hurt us...

    Ballroom OFF Fifth

    That is the new name of the studio, now on West 37th street in Manhattan. Come on by, it's a little smaller than we might like, but still very nice. I haven't seen the usual crowd that practiced at the old place. Any reason?
