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.
