Dance Beat had this to say about The Triple Crown, of which the Florida State DanceSport Championships is one… “Those of you familiar with the Triple Crown events, know they follow a formula. They are always held in luxury hotels (4- & 5-Star) and always allow adequate time for sumptuous dining. Even with the wealth of entries (10,200) this was still true.” Edition 0801. 2001
