Lakay Weekly -

Emmanuel Pierre-Antoine, dancer of Haitian descent has been crowned as the first black world champion within these categories. His passion for the arts began at the Harry Policard Institure de Danse Sociales at the age of 18. The audience was moved to tears when the professor, Harry Policard, spoke endearing words of joys as one of his promising students had reached the height that dancers dream of. Everyone in attendance was personally greeted by the formidable dancer himself “Thank you for celebrating with me tonight, it is truly an honor.” Prior to the show Emmanuel went by each table and asked a lucky woman to float around the dance floor with him. This added a level of intimacy to the evening. Glasses of wine were kept full all throughout the night as the audience savored a welcoming dinner. A short media clip recounting Emmanuel’s life was shown and then the moment the audience had been patiently awaiting began. Emmanuel Pierre-Antoine & Liana Churilova, Maxim & Anastasia Kozhevnikov, and Travis & Jaimee Tuft; dazzled the audience with their elegance, pizzaz and smooth moves. From the Samba, to the waltz and chacha and the swing, they swayed and moved gracefully. It was like being on the set of dancing with the stars. With each move, they propelled each of us to dream and take out our dancing shoes. Emmanuel and his fellow dancers received a well deserved standing ovation, as these dancers left all present in awe. Haiti’s world champion, Emmanuel Pierre-Antoine, a spectacular dancer, afforded us a stellar evening. Truly a moment to remember. By Christina Jean-Louis
