National Dance Championships 2018

The 2018 Fred Astaire National Dance Championships, held at Orlando’s Hilton Bonnet Creek from October 29th – November 2nd, was quite the magical experience! Professional and amateur dancers from all over the country traveled to Florida to perform and compete in this spectacular event. St. Pete North students, Ruth Elliott & Kelly Spence, outdid themselves representing our studio and have us gleaming with pride. Dancing in both open and closed divisions, Ruth & Kelly showed off their skills in rumba, swing, hustle, mambo, bolero, cha-cha, tango, west coast swing, foxtrot and waltz ~ talk about dance lessons paying off! St. Pete North’s owner & instructor Manny Herrera (with Annie Rockhill of FADS Middletown, CT)  & instructor Ciarra Bremer (with Chad Martin of FADS Tampa, FL) danced in the Closed American Rhythm Division. Congratulations to all students, instructors and owners for an outstanding 2018 FADS NDC!
