My article, "Dancesport in the Philippines", got published in Dance Comp Review!

I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw a message from Dance Comp Review (DCR), telling me that they wanted me to write an article for them about Philippine ballroom. I was totally psyched! For all my non-dancing readers, Dance Comp Review is a US-based website that features interviews from dancesport champions all over the world, articles on the most glamorous competitions, as well as lessons and tips from world-renowned coaches and teachers. It is the ultimate resource for all things dancesport, and being part of it -- as a contributor, or as an “insider” -- is such a huge honor!

I poured my heart and soul writing the article, recalling all the memorable experiences and compiling everything I knew, observed, and realized after 8 years of doing ballroom. It was fun writing the article, not only because I had to dig up some old photos and enjoyed so much looking at them, but also because it reminded me why I fell in love and am still deeply head-over-heels with this art and sport.

Furthermore, Dance Comp Review featured my own action photography in their website—photos from competitions I attended here in the Philippines. I am just so happy to see my own photos in such an amazing blog!

Whether you’re a dancesport athlete, a dance enthusiast, or just someone who’s curious to know what dancesport is like in our awesome country, I’m sure you will pick up a few things from these:

Thanks to Dance Comp Review once again for picking me to contribute to their site. More power to you guys! Cheers to better dancing!

PS: The article is part of Dance Comp Review’s mission to become GLOBAL.
