Northeast DanceSport Championships 2019 Schedule

The studio is gearing up for one of its favorite events of the year — the Northeast DanceSport Championships!  The event takes place close to home, practically in our own backyard.  This competition is a fan favorite for studio spectators, which means that if you’re not dancing IN the competition, you should definitely come watch.  There LOTS of team spirit and opportunity to get front-row view of the action on the dance floor.

We wish the best of luck to all of our student competitors & performers at this event. If you see them, bid well wishes to competitors Kathy Ratchko & Pia Cardillo, as well as our showcase performer Jeremy Diskint.  These students have been putting in a great deal of time and effort to prepare for this event, so please come support them from the sidelines!

You’ll also want to join us Friday evening for an exciting session that includes the professional divisions!  Join us to see your pros in action!
