    A recent photo on FB inspired me to do some digging into results, and I'm realizing that for 2006 and before, I (as a kid who only started dancing in 2009) can find easily who won the National Pro Championship in any given style, but often, I have no idea who the other finalists were. I started compiling a list, and I'm hoping people have results photos or old articles to help flesh out what I'm missing. I'm starting with the National Pro Smooth and hopefully can move on to National Pro Rhythm, World Pro Smooth, World Pro Rhythm, etc., after this is done. I'd like to go back as far as possible, but I figured for now, I could start with 2000 onward, and when everything is settled, I could put it into a Wikipedia article or something.

    Wow, I had no idea Mazen had that long of a career (and with that many different partners)! And now it makes a lot more sense when my smooth teacher refers to "David and Olga" without using last names...

    Thanks for starting this thread...great to learn a couple more pieces of dance history.

    So if it's the couple I think you are talking about (Peter and Izabella) they debuted last weekend at Millenium!

    . VERY EXCITING! I've been dying to see how they dance together since I heard they were partnering up....

    I didn't realize Mazen had retired. A quick search (Mazen Hamza retirement) shows a lovely retirement letter and video on the OSB site.
