This week’s “Video of the Week” features Eugene Katsevman leading a Mambo demonstration for the Adult Latin Seminar with Anastasiya Danilova, Christian Yeung and Dasha Ryndych. Mambo is a dance that you must let loose in, and is a great exercise for body control and body movement. Eugene and Maria decided to teach the Mambo (a non-traditional choice for an International Latin Seminar) for exactly this reason: letting loose and having fun with your body movement. Don’t miss next week’s Tuesday Latin Seminar with Dance Legends, Eugene and Maria, from 7 to 830 PM!

Switching partners, using a cape, dancing side by side with Eugene Katsevman doesn’t intimidate us. On the contrary it brings the best in us. Even some creative cape work!
Stay tuned for more special events to take your dancing to the next level.
We would like to congratulate Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova for reaching a wonderful milestone of dancing together for 20 Years! Since starting to dance together on August 1st, 1993, Eugene and Maria have become true dance legends and icons in ballroom dance history. Together they have become 11-Times Undefeated US National Amateur Latin Champions and Professional World Latin Finalists (read more here: Eugene and Maria Bio), and have truly cemented their legacy. Although Eugene and Maria are not competing together anymore, they are still dancing and teaching together; they train some of the world’s top couples including multiple national champions/finalists and a number of world finalists at their second home, Brooklyn DanceSport Club. A crowning milestone for these amazing dance legends. CONGRATULATIONS Eugene and Maria!
“Video of the Week” – Samba Preparation for the 2013 NDCA Amateur Latin National Championships and the Final of the Event
This week’s “Video of the Week” features six couples dancing the Samba in a ‘competition simulation’ for this year’s NDCA Amateur Latin National Championships in Provo, Utah and then the final of the Samba for this event. What is key to note here is that 3 of the 6 couples were finalists in this event and all 6 couples placed in the Top 9! Yes, you read it right, 6 of the top 9 couples were preparing for this event at Brooklyn DanceSport Club with Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova and the results really show. From the 2013 NDCA Amateur Latin Champions, Denys Drozdyuk and Antonina Skobina, to fourth place finalists, Aleksey Karaulov and Vlada Semenova dancing in their first competition together, this was an impressive run-through and an even more impressive final. Come join us every Tuesday at 8:30 PM and Thursday at 8:00 PM to practice with the Nation’s best dancers.
(Another key statistic: of the 12 couples featured in the 2012 NDCA Amateur Latin National Championship Final, 9 of them were at this competition simulation)

Brooklyn DanceSport Club’s Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova, along with Michael Chapman and Lee and Linda Wakefield choreographed this champion-winning routine for the BYU Dance Formation Team that separated them from the rest of the competition and helped them bring back the gold for the USA. An absolutely fantastic job! We thank the BYU Dance Formation team for their dedication to excellence and wish them continued success.
This week, from April 22nd to April 27th, Brooklyn DanceSport Club hosted world-renowned coach, Ruud Vermeij. Ruud, along with 11-Time USA National Amateur Latin Champions, Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova, and movement educator and dance coach at the Dutch Dance Lab, Aleksandar Josipovic, led seminars, lectures, private lessons, and run-throughs throughout this event. The final seminar that was led by Ruud tied everything together and was the perfect finale to one of our best events. Thank you Ruud and Aleksandar for leading this event and we hope to see you back soon!
Aleksandar Josipovic showed Brooklyn DanceSport Club and all those who attended his seminar during the “Dance Camp with Ruud Vermeij” how a decade experience being a dancer at the Moulin Rouge, over two decades of Ballroom dancing and coaching experience, and an appearance at the UNESCO International Dance Council World Congress can make you one of more highly sought dance coaches in the world. Aleksandar taught a spectacular seminar on body coordination and how to dance from within your body; after a brief lecture all those who attended were able to perform their own variation of music interpretation and how to coordinate the body to this interpretation. BDSC thanks Aleksandar for such a wonderful seminar and we are happy to have Ruud Vermeij, Eugene Katsevman, Maria Manusova and Aleksandar continue the lectures this week. You do not want to miss tomorrow’s lecture with Ruud Vermeij at 7 PM!
