Did you know that all of the champions in all 3 of the 2010 world professional divisions (in International Style) were from the USA? This just shows how far we have come in Dancesport. Past world champions have usually come from European countries like Germany, England, Scotland and others. But 2010 belongs to the United States of America – dominating all 3 divisions! The funny thing is that non of these couples are actually “American”…They are all European! But they represent USA and that’s all that matters in our dance world. Its great to have them here as they will surely raise our nation’s level of dancing. Aside from the champions I am starting to see more and more American couples making their mark in big International competitions like Blackpool and German Open. We are becoming a force to be wrecked with.
The champions and their respective styles (videos below):

Do you think these couples will boost America’s dancing level?
