Watch our new Virtual Student Showcase from home!

 

 

Dance Station is usually filled with spectators whenever we throw one of our student showcases. But like so many other things in 2020, we’ve had to do much of our work virtually. Now, we are proud to announce that our latest student showcase is available to view online. All 12 showcase videos are free to stream.

We call it “Dancing Through the Decades 1920-2020.” Please join me in congratulating our participating students: Dave Cremers, Ted Kreifals, Nancy Leverenz, Katherine Nydes, Barbara Pattelena, Peter Pesic, Kathy Roybal, Marie Stoffer, and Meg Wilburn.

I’d also like to offer a special thanks to our teachers who joined me in choreographing and performing these routines: Mike Garcia, Elli Hindmarch, and Mary Miller.

We are excited to share our dancing in this new format. Along the way, we’ve learned a lot and have really enjoyed the benefits of producing this video showcase. We’re happy that we can now share it with you.

So welcome to “Dancing Through the Decades 1920-2020!” You provide the dinner and we provide the show! Click here to watch the showcase videos.

Meanwhile, enjoy a few photos from the showcase performances!

Competitor Practice – March 8

We are once again hosting a competitor practice on Friday, March 8 at 7 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for students who study competitive style dancing to hone their skills and build their stamina. We will be dancing rounds in both International and American Style ballroom and in the American Rhythm dances. Be sure to sign up to participate. If you are curious about how competitions are danced or just want to support your dancing friends feel free to stop by and watch for awhile, an audience is an important part of preparation.Lawrence Black and Adrianna Duncan
