The Fascinating World of American Smooth

“Dancing the American Smooth is like taking on a fascinating journey through the realms of Ballroom Dance. Two souls moving as one, creating space, shape, and color under the caressing sounds of the Waltz – a captivating experience. Every inch of the body fulfills a dimension, seemingly like magic; every gesture suggests mystery, every look- intention. Drawing the audience in is an easy task- no expert eye is needed. The hypnotizing siren-like piece of art has spoken.”

Professional dancer Atanas Malamov lays out the beautiful world of American Smooth and discusses the details of dancing in this blog post on his website. Click below to read this comprehensive post about the fascinating world of American Smooth:
