You need to check the panel for the US champ. 75% are europeans..and , there are several major comps that regularly judge in the US ( Ohio for e.g. )

Can you tell I'm comp. averse? Your right, I should have checked facts. I just based it on the comps I've been to and the judges I know. I do very well but it just isn't the reason I dance.

Hmm. Maybe for really big competitions the cost could be absorbed and so maybe it could have a chance to work. But it has the potential to wipe smaller, less expensive competitions off of the calendar.

Terence. Didn't I see that it was announced that a rule had been put in place whereby no judge would be allowed to judge two consecutive US. Championships. That was about four years ago.

By sitting back and saying nothing has led us to this ridiculace position where an Amateur can teach without being qualified. Dont anybody try to tell me that the top Amateurs in the world do not teach. Soon why will anybody want to declare themselves a Professional unless one wanted to compete as a Pro.
Two years ago here a major IDSF Amateur Comp was held. Some of the top competitors taking part openly advertised that they would be available for lessons. The rules in their counties allowed this. Where will it end. I like the way it is in Germany where the clubs own the competitions. Within the clubs they do not cater for Social Dancers. The teachers outside the clubs can teach Socialy but never teach a competition dancer. Because to be a competitor one must be a member of a club. If none of this is correct please say so because this was how it was told to me. It would appear to be a good system
