Blackpool is Blackpool!

Love it or hate it, the Blackpool Dance Festival is still around since its inception in 1920 (with a break for the WWII years) and seems all set to make it to 100, providing that the venerable but crumbling Winter Gardens remain upright in the interim.

Vilnius “on the fly!”

Report by Keith Todd

When Arunas Bizokas asked me if I could judge his event, The Vilnius Dance Festival, my first impulse was to decline because my schedule did not seem to allow for it.  But on closer evaluation I realized that I could make it, albeit for only one day.

I’m a sucker for a downtown location and The Atlanta Open offers just that.  Its venue, the Hyatt Regency, is in the center of Atlanta a vibrant city.

Pharrell Williams smash hit “Happy” was the unofficial theme song of this year’s Wisconsin State Dancesport Championships.  It was used in a hilarious video with mock interviews that was screened at the start of Saturday night and also to introduce the judges in an impromptu “dance on” (we still haven’t forgiven you for that one Dan!).

Vegas Open Comes of Age

Report by Keith Todd
Action Photography by Chris Hansen Photography

I believe I have attended every Vegas Open (or Vegas Showdown as it was originally named) since its inception.  This year I believe the event came of age!  It was larger than it has ever been with about 6,500 entries, but it is not only the entry count that measures a competition in my view.
