In the second part of our conversation with these two legends, we get a deeper look at their careers and their influence over the global dance community. They shared their views of how the dance has spread globally and their role in making that happen. They talked about how they grounded their routines in West Coast Swing while also pushing the dance and their own creativity. We asked them whether they are mindful of their dancing when they compete, knowing that so many people are looking to them as examples of the dance. We got into a discussion about knowing your history, understanding the past, and how it informs their teaching today. And finally, they told us the story of how they decided to retire from the Classic division, and where they have been going with their careers since. Lots of honest, heartfelt reflections from two of the greatest dancers of our time.
