From the Manhattan Center Main Ballroom, Olga and Edgar dominate the ballroom dance competition (the judges even look at the facial expressions) Ballroom dancing is very exciting: the meaty women, the slender guys, the metric tons of makeup, the blocks of hair on the men, the athleticism. Ballroom dancing is one of the last hold outs of stylized effort, manners if you will. It’s like coming onto a lost pop world; it's as though you were to enter the Frayne building and all the businessmen are men, and wearing thick dark glasses frames and thin ties.
