    Having enlisted towards the end of the Vietnam conflict I am a veteran. I have always had a hard time admitting I was one because I know the struggles of my fellow service men and women who really paid the price while I stayed here in the States.
    I had a real hard time watching this show. I am proud of these people who go out of their way to show our military how much we really do appreciate everthing they have done for us.
    Some people really have no clue what our existence would be like if we did not have the military we do. These fine people place their lives and their families future on the line every single day.
    I have a son who is a very fine Marine. He has dedicated himself to serving all of us. He has a wonderfully supportive wife and his kids love him dearly. I am very proud of him and his wife.

    What ever happened to the families from the PBS series Frontier House?

    I would like to know how the Dominican students and teachers featured in the documentary, “Mad Hot Ballroom” are doing.

    • Bronx in Israel

      Me too! I just saw Mad Hot Ballroom again in Israel and can’t wait to hear what paths the kids have taken.

      I , too, am wondering how these ladies & gentlemen have fared in the years since the competition ended. Wondering, specifically, about Michell & Kelaey – the movie commented several times on positive changes in both of them since beginning dance classes. Also wondering whether any went on to further dance lessons or careers or did any become teachers,. Lastly, where are the teachers & principals today? Is the competition still taking place?

    Yes please find those kids from Mad Hot Ballroom and let us know how their lives are working out —- Please!!!!!!!
