The New York Dance Festival is a DanceSport competition hosted annually in New York (USA) by 11-time undefeated Amateur Latin United States National Champions Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova.


As the new organizers of the New York Dance Festival, Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova have taken over the tradition of hosting this competition right in the heart of their home - New York, NY, at the world-renown Roosevelt Hotel. The Grand Ballroom features a 5,696 square-foot space decorated with pure elegance and an architectural design that jumps back in time. Chandeliers hanging from the 27-foot ornate ceiling, iron balconies, wall sconces, hues of amber, just like the 1920s!

Four days of dancing include a Dinner Dance Gala in which Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova themselves, along with their renown studio, the Brooklyn DanceSport Club perform in unique show numbers to fire up the night! A live band performs as the night kicks off with Social Dancing to superb music. A dinner is also included.


Right before the competition kicks off, the New York Dance Festival hosts its own training camp as a preparation for the days of dancing to come. Coaches that have participated in the 2016 training camp included Karen Hardy, Greg Smith, Markus Homm, Rufus Dustin, and Klaus Kongsdal.

The line-up for the 2017 NYDF Camp introduces Slavik Kryklyvyy and Bryan Watson along with Greg Smith, Markus Homm, Rufus Dustin.
