A mambo performance
From Fred and Ginger to Dancing With The Stars, ballroom dancing has its share of legends. This year, for the first time in the US, you had the opportunity to see today's living legends all in one place, at the historic Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Your favorite dancers performed shows in this year's spectacular!
Two of these legends we have the pleasure of watching rehearse everyday at our studio. Watch Philip and Jolanta as they dance their favourite mambo on a star studded stage among the other legends.
