Michael Malitowski and Joanna Leunis announced their retirement after winning the Blackpool 8 consecutive years.

Source - friend on FB (that is at blackpool).

I guess this finally opens the way for Riccardo Cocchi & Yulia Zagoruychenko...

I heard Michael and Joanna are retiring from competition. They have their farewell letter on the web.

Riccardo won't show up in the early rounds.  I think they join only in the quarter-finals since he's with the same partner as last year.

Anyone keeping up to date with Blackpool. I see interesting Marks. The USA has done very well as has the eastern block countries. Australia has done OK as well and some of our expats have also done well dancing for England.  I had a quick look at the markings in the early rounds and Riccado  was not showing at the top so I dont know how this works. but final markings are not there.

I look forward to the Professional ballroom as my coach is dancing finished in the top 48 in rising star. The big guns will be out tomorrow/today depending on where you are. What concerns me is that the divide in this country for WDC and WDSF is still there, with one couple that still lives here dancing for England how does that work, there parents were dancers and still are coaches and he is so PRO WDC, they ( the competitors) live in Australia very strange.

I'll be interested to hear what develops.

I know of a couple where she is taller and I find that sometimes she looks distorted as she tries to put her head in a funny way not to be taller than him. Also another couple she had too much lowering in her legs compared to her partner, must be very difficult.

It takes some work on both sides, but I have seen partnerships on both sides of the spectrum that have made it very successful go of it... All the way to a world class level.

yes Billy and Boby irvine were in that situation they sure made it work  Grin

well we dance for ourselves now as well. It is way too political and most judges look after their own bread and butter. We love it and will try to be better everything we get to the floor but wont do it for the judges anymore.

yes we have a new couple working in the other studio so hopefully they will see what we do and perhaps want to give it a try

I hope not. Personally, though I may only drop by every so often now, i hope PDO stays as is. It's still my number one place to go when I'm missing dancing. I love going back through the old (and any new) topics and getting back into the dancer frame of mind. And reading up on how the PDO family is going, those that still drop by. Family, to me, that's what we are, though we may not catch up often, when we do it's always fun.

Hi BW, I feel the same way but its hard to justify the costs (I have to pay for the internet hosting; we don't have advertizing) if no one drops in and posts here.  Curiously, after weeks of no one we just had two new members sign up - I hope they follow up and say hello - I'm a bit tired of just hearing my echo!

And now we are back again because this is far more satisfying that elsewhere... Just hope we can get a few more to return and those coming in as guests to participate.
By the way, sorry I missed your post I don't know why it didn't register...

I say that all the time why is it that so many men are hesitant to try?

I have absolutely no idea.  They just don't realize how attractive a man who can dance to a lady...

I know and what is sad the  impression from their men friends seems more powerful :-/ yet in years gone by it was the done thing. I see a increase in the number of men wanting to to Salsa etc. I think they think Ballroom is too stuffy?

If Salsa gets them in the door then maybe the realization that women are attracted to men who dance will keep the coming back and learn more dances. And a few socials under his belt, with ladies asking him to dance does wonders for the male ego.   Smiley

By the time I was at the highest level I found it was more importiant to please myself than it was the judges. I was tired of doing battle against the US judges who were so  clueless...
