Dancesport is expanding and American style dance categories are slow entering the international market. It has taken many years for this fresh influx of dancing to travel across the Atlantic but boy are we happy its here ! Myhailo Azarov & Tetyana Makarenko danced in the final of the open professional American Smooth final displaying incredible talent. Later in the week they also captivated the audience at Kings Landing castle with exhibition dance titled "Maybe you" . (Link to showdance www.youtube.com/watch?v=job7ruazT6E )
My prediction for European dancesport is one of multi-level divisions. The understanding that other nations offer certain freedoms in movement can only help evolve what we know and understand as traditional dancing. This also goes for who professionals interact with students and amateurs alike. These evolutions will definitely come with certain sacrifices as most changes for the better often do. In due time we will level out and learn to live within the standards set out by each given association.
