Don’t forget, today we have guest coach Jan Mattingly in the studio to coach students and help improve their dancing skills. Jan is a six time undefeated United States American Smooth and American Rhythm champion!
Tomorrow, May 5th we have Spotlight, which will be held at the Houston Club on top of the One Shell Plaza overlooking the downtown houston skyline! You won’t want to miss this exciting show, with such a spectacular view of the city.
It’s not an easy decision to perform in front of others, but many of those who accept the challenge find the effort entirely rewarding.
Our students have been working very diligently and practicing with all their heart and now the time is coming for their dedication to be put on display for all to see! They would love to hear your applause! Call the studio (713-827-8084) for more information.
Speaking of competitions, we were home to Fred Astaire’s National Competition, CCDC, which took place here in Houston at the JW Marriott Marquis Downtown last week. We enjoyed an entire week full of student competitions, professional competitions, and dinners with live bands and social dancing!
We want to take a moment to congratulate all of our amazing students who took part in the national competition! John Bogard competed in his Rhythm entries and danced wonderfully! He also performed his Novelty show routine with his instructor Yolanda Ribota and he won Top Bronze Novelty Male Dancer! Ann Sanders performed her showcase routine with instructors Joshua Bradford and Emanuele Magnasco and received a 95+ score! Azita Madjidi competed in the Open Smooth divisions and received 1st place in many of her single dance entries as well as making it to the Semi-Final rounds with her Open Smooth Routines!
Great work, everyone! We are so proud of you! Give yourselves a hand as well!
