In memory of Peter Pover
Monday, May 13, 2019
USA Dance and the world of dance lost a very good friend recently. Peter Pover, past president of USA Dance, passed away on Monday, May 13, 2019 after suffering a brain aneurysm a week earlier. Mr. Pover served as USA Dance President on several occasions. He was president from 1988 to 1993, 2008-2009 and again in 2016. He also held other important roles in USA Dance.
Peter was as avid amateur ballroom competitor. His passion for dancing led him to his many roles within US Amateur Ballroom Dancers Association (USABDA), now USA Dance. He was instrumental in gaining Olympic recognition of DanceSport. In my mind, he more than any other epitomizes USA Dance.
Those who knew him better than I knew of his love for cooking, golfing, playing bridge and chess. He loved to travel and spoke four languages fluently – English, French, German and Arabic.
I would like to share one of my limited experiences with Peter...
