This Ballroomology.com website is dedicated to the study of Ballroom Dance, and in Loving memory of my mentor Bob Medeiros, who with his dance partner Sheryn Hawkins were the First Official United States International Latin Style Champions in 1971.
After many hours of research, emails and phone calls, I was able to get hold of Bob Medeiros’ personal Super 8mm Films of his Competition Dancing days with his partner Sheryn Hawkins. These films were the inspiration and starting point for this ballroomology.com website and its historical preservation.
The Super 8mm Films were sent out to be converted to Digital Video files, where they have been edited, with a Music Sound Track and Narration added. Now everyone can experience how talented Bob and Sheryn were as dancers, and learn from their innovation.
Our goal is to present videos and articles that will hopefully encourage dancers of all ages and levels to connect with their inner spirit creating their own dance expression.
Please contact us if you have any films or videos of Ballroom Competition Dancing events that you could submit to us that we may post to this website.
