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.

Are you searching for a pro/am event to dance at in September 2019 ?
The Adriatic Pearl 2018 had some incredible pro/am dancers from all over the world ! In the clip above filmed exclusively by Dance Today. You will see Marina "Glock" Dzasokhova performing with her teacher Ivan. The attendance was a great size considering its only the second year!
The attention to detail and care for how the students felt during the day sessions was amazing. Marko and Nick tried to accommodate to every possible request within reason of course. If this is the level of service a competitor receives here than this sets a new level of standards for organizers in the European circuits.
The few things that were out of place were fixed very quickly. Firstly the order of dances were slightly staggered but the Marko was keen on adjusting that on day two. This is to be expected as Pro/am has existed in the Americas for long time and is just now crossing the pond!
As a universal consensus, every dancers came to say that this was a gorgeous well produced event in the Pearl of the Adriatic !
Dance Today would like to personally thank Marko & the entire family/team of the Adriatic Pearl for their hospitality and warm invitation!
