In another thread, hereKittyKitty mentioned the book Ballroom Icons. I haven’t seen the book, but it certainly looks interesting from reading the pages and information available on the author’s website www. ballroomicons.com (delete the space). I thought it would be nice to have a Ballroom Icons thread! A place to pay tribute to the people who helped create the art/sport that we enjoy today. It could be a general thank you to those who came before us, or a personal thought about how you were touched by someone you consider to be a Ballroom Icon, a sharing about someone who has inspired your dancing, or sharing something interesting you’ve learned about the people who helped make ballroom dancing what it is today. I look forward to your shares – enjoy!
