America's Ballroom Challenge

Posted: Tuesday, March 04, 2008 by Travis Cody in

If you are a fan of dance, take some time with these clips from the finale of America's Ballroom Challenge. There are some wonderful exhibition presentations. Fans of Dancing with the Stars will see Tony Dovolani and Elena Grinenko. You'll also see Maks Chmerkovskiy's brother Valentin in an exhibition.

But the main attraction will be the champion pairs from the four styles, American Smooth, American Rhythm, International Standard, and International Latin. They are tremendous performers.

The champions are:

American Smooth: Tomas Mielnicki and J.T. Thomas
American Rhythm: Jose Decamps and Joanna Zacharewicz
International Standard: Arunas Bizokas and Katusha Demidova
International Latin: Andrei Gavriline and Elena Kryuchkova
