top ballroom exhibition dancer comments on west coast swing, hustle and country western dance

In Ballroom: Obsession and Passion Inside the World of Competitive Dance, an interesting memoir by Sharon Savoy:

At the upper echelons of technical ability, the demands of ballet versus balloom skills are not comparable.  I have marveled for years that in even smaller dance communities such as country western, hustle and west coast swing, some dancers actually acquire huge egos.  My only conclusion is that these dancers have never taken class.
