Well, we were pleasantly surprised the Arizona Dance Classic, which is mostly a country western competition had a ballroom segment on Sunday and it was a fun time. The MC and the music director did a good job. We weren't doing quickstep to no country tune that was for sure. And a good time was had by all, even though we did not have a lot of competitors.
Ballroom Dance Party at the Adult Center has a whole new feel.
If you have been to the dance the last 2 fridays you may have already noticed an improvement.
After a survey several weeks ago, several members got together to discuss what can be done to improve the dances. These include having greeters, bringing snacks, improving the music.
We are hoping there will be a new instructor offering beginning ballroom dance classes starting in August.
For the friday August 7th dance expect a hot new mix of music, greeters, food and snacks, and a great social dance event for Prescott.
Well here we are. Little Prescott Ballroom wins top Studio in San Diego. This is the second top studio in as many competitions. Pictured from left to right: Organizers Wayne Eng and Wendy Johnson, students Ivy Laib, Janet Hafner, Our fabulous instructor Paul Jack, Patrick Wilcox, Anne Downes, Karen Wagley, and Dee Ritchey.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to participate in this competition. It was a lot of fun. The show on Saturday night was a spectacular mix of young amateurs (dancing like pro's) and top pro's.
We hope we will be able to go next year and have more participation from Prescott Ballroom. We were short one competitor Judy Nixon due to an emergency and she was greatly missed.
In addition to top studio we had the following winners. 3 students in the top 20 overall. Ivy Laib, Janet Hafner, and Anne Downes. Anne Downes won top female student overall. Patrick and Karen won the pre-novice standard amateur competition. Best of all Paul Jack won a well earned 2nd place for top teacher.
