    Talking My brother, the World Champion!

    So last week was the World and US Pro/Am Championship of ballroom dancing in Ohio. My brother, after a few years of placing 2nd or 3rd, finally won in the American Rhythm section!! This includes Bolero, Rumba, Cha Cha, Swing and...hmm...another one.

    I am very proud of him. If you would like to see him, you can follow this link...it worked for my boss, but I am not sure if it leads to the Google search result or straight to YouTube. I am at work and I can not go to YouTube.

    That's pretty cool!

    Woo, he really knows how to use his hips!!! Fantastic grace, and his partner too... moves like she's made of silk. (link works fine!)

    Congrats!
    One of my dear friends had a son in the competition. I have not heard how he did yet...

    How cool - wish I could dance like that. My husband is a good ballroom dancer but sadly I have two left feet. Congrats to your brother.
