This is the first of a series of interviews called “A Talk with”. These talks are produced for our YouTube channel DanceArchives
Sam Sodano, one of the leading figures of Ballroom dancing in America is answering the three major questions:
“How did you perceive the style differences for Latin-American dancing when you first came to England?”
“Do you feel/think that the competitive International Style Latin has become more authentic since then?”
“How can the competitive International Style Latin be kept most authentic in the future in your opinion”

Cuban Pete was heavy on this very concept.
