Perez and Leonardo Sardella, of Argentina; Tal Livshitz and Ilana Keselman, of Israel; and Russian dancers Jorge Torres and Maria Blanco, and Pasha Pashkov and Daniella Karagach.

The event will showcase the tango, samba, rumba, cha-cha and paso doble. Trillo and Zhitova will dance the Latin samba, the cha-cha, the paso doble, rumba and jive.

"Dancing is my life," said Trillo, who aspires to add an American title to his international honors. "Dancing is the only thing that I have in my head. I am happy when I am dancing. It is my breath."

He hopes to encourage others to give dance a spin. On a recent evening at a South Norwalk pizza restaurant, Trillo offered a quick dance lesson for those waiting for a slice.

"Everybody can dance," he said. "It's an important part of the culture."
