The DanceSport World has Lost a True Champion

We have learned this morning that Peter Pover, National Past President of USA Dance has just passed away. Peter served as President of USA Dance no less than three times – in late 1980 to early 1990, in 2008-2009, and again in 2016. He was one of the pivotal voices in USA Dance, also serving as First Vice President and President of the WDSF (IDSF) where he played a key role in earning IOC and USOC recognition for DanceSport. I am sure there will be many tributes for Peter to come as he was a larger than life figure in the world of dance and DanceSport. I greatly respected Peter and was privileged to call him a friend. His intelligence, knowledge and sound advice will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
