The promise of a New Year always brings big hopes and plans for new adventures to come at Ballroom Dance Clubs of Atlanta. Our team is ready to rock and roll into 2017 and we want you to come along.
We want to send our best wishes to Ballroom Dance Clubs representatives Ashley Fowler and Austin Aldridge who are competing this weekend at the Majesty Dance Competition in Orlando, Florida. Our dance director Pierre Bush has tagged along to gain some new insight from the dance workshops being held there as well. We wish them luck and can’t wait to hear all about their big weekend!
There are plenty of local dance events on the horizon as well. On February 18th, we are holding our first big event of 2017: our Metro-Atlanta Match Competition. The Match Competition has been a popular event at Ballroom Dance Clubs for decades and we’re incredibly excited for this year’s version. This event gives our students the opportunity to have a competitive dance experience in a variety of different dances we teach of their choosing. Scoring will be determined by a panel of judges and placements will be given for a few special championship categories. Our hope is for students to take advantage of the chance to dance with as many of our instructors as they can. Either way, the Match Competition is a fun event that helps speed up our students learning, helps build up their confidence and will make everyone involved a better, more polished dancer.
This year’s Match Competition is going to be huge! Not only do we already have 33 student dancers and 15 dance instructors committed to participate, but we are happy to announce that we will once again be joined by our sister studio Augusta Ballroom Dance Center! With these 20 additional participants, this could be our biggest Match Competition yet. Our judges this year, including Michael Raisch from Florida and Tamsyn Devilliers from Marietta, GA, will also be available for coaching the next day so contact Ballroom Dance Clubs of Atlanta today to schedule your dance lesson. Admission for the Match Competition is free and refreshments will be served throughout the day. We can’t wait to see you all there!
