Unlike Bruno and Carrie Anne, Maks is a qualified ballroom dance judge and will be doing just that in Cambridge at the Yankee Classic next June. I particularly appreciate this in reference to the judging:Originally Posted by sdl;3744190;Personally, I'd love to see Maks replace one of the three judges next season.I'm just livid because I feel antics like that distract from the show and those of us who want to promote ballroom dancing and the art of dance in general have to defend the judges and explain that "they didn't mean it." We've spent the past nine seasons bringing it to people, introducing it to a new audience. I love getting asked questions about it, explaining it to people, writing about it here for you to read. I want people to learn about dance and hopefully like it and the stuff they did on the show can hurt that.
