Lawrence Black and Kathy Roybal
Dance Station students and teachers — along with friends of the studio — who competed at the 2014 Colorado Star Ball are home icing their feet and eating all the good stuff they couldn’t indulge in while they were dancing.
Meanwhile, we’ve posted new photos from American smooth day on Saturday. Check them out in the gallery.
