Considered by many to be “Mr. Waltz”, Bob Bahrs created an immediate impact on country dancing with his partner Sarah Bahrs once they began competing in 1991. Bob and Sarah put together a string of 40 consecutive waltz titles during the span of their partnership, and in 1994 they became Masters Division World Champions. Bob and Sarah produced the Heartland Dance Festival for 11 years, and in 2001, Bob served as Worlds director when Worlds was held in Alberta, Canada. Bob was also instrumental in bringing Pro-Am competition to the UCWDC. In addition to providing dance floor and video services to numerous country, ballroom and swing dance events, Bob now competes in the Masters division with his wife Paula.
