trophy showcaseThe 2015 Fall Trophy Ball and Showcase is almost upon us. For a fabulous evening of dance, food and festivities, join us on Saturday evening, October 3rd, in the Arabian Room at Murat’s and you’ll truly be transported to the most glamorous aspects of dance.

The evening begins when doors open at 4:45 p.m. and goes through 9 p.m. Dress is semi-formal. There will be a catered dinner, a cash bar, social dancing and a chance to see your fellow students advancing through the Fred Astaire Dance Studios program. Tickets are $85. Murat’s is located at 510 N. New Jersey St.

Once our students have passed Basic Level and Social and Advanced Foundation programs, they can move into the Trophy system to further develop their skills.

Here’s a summary of the Trophy progression:

Bronze Trophy Program

The Bronze Trophy level is for you if you want to become a confident, master social dancer. It is the most popular standard for our students, and the first Trophy Program available to new students. As a Bronze dancer you are considered fun to dance with because you know enough different dances and patterns to be able to cope with almost any dance situation. At the Bronze level you are introduced to and eventually master the technique and style that makes each dance look and feel the way it should on the dance floor.

Silver Trophy Program

The Silver Program is for the person who wishes to become an expressive, polished dancer distinguished by versatility and style in all the popular social dances. Silver dancers stand out on the floor but not just because of the intricate steps they can do. It’s their confidence and poise, the way they carry themselves, their ability to maneuver in a crowd and the fact that they don’t appear to be thinking, but can laugh and talk while they dance!

Gold Trophy Program

The Gold level dancer is an outstanding ballroom dancer. It is the highest level an amateur dancer can achieve. To a non-dancer, the Gold dancer may be mistaken for a professional because they have developed the poise and polish that comes with a complete and thorough knowledge of all the major ballroom dances. Advanced style and poise in all of the ballroom dances sets the Gold dancer apart from all others.

Join us on Saturday night for a magical time in a terrific venue, with great food, fun and camaraderie. Call us now for tickets.
