SLAVIK KRYKLYVYY AND ANNA MELNIKOVA COMPETE IN US NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Argh, I knew I should have gone to the U.S. National Championships this year. My favorite male Latin dancer, Slavik Kryklyvyy, and his new partner, Anna Melnikova, just competed in the Open to the World category in Florida. They placed second, behind Yulia Zagoruychenko and Riccardo Cocchi. I can imagine what an exciting comp that must have been though. Here’s a short video of Slavik and Anna’s Cha Cha round. Go here to see more competition videos of the champs in each category.

  1. That's great news! Here's hoping this partnership works out.
    I almost feel like this is Slavik's last chance to be competitive.

  2. I know, I think exactly the same thing Susan.

  3. You should have gone! People were going crazy, I think they're a good match. I always try not to compare any other dancer to Karina, but she's more towards the Karina style of dancing than the Yulia or Joanna style. I got lots of video, but someone stole my camera!
