9 Culture in Dance youth ballroom team members, who are also Orlando Chapter USA Dance members, recently competed at the USA DANCE competition in Louisville, KY. Thanks to the dedication of these youth dancers and their amazing instructors, Orlando ballroom pros Aimee Allen and Lukasz Rogowski, the team members have advanced to the USA Dance Nationals held in Baltimore at the end of March. USA Dance Nationals is where the representatives of the United States are chosen (for all ages) for International ballroom competitions during the following year. You can find out more about the USA Dance Nationals at this link, www.usadancenationals.com.
In order to raise funds for the trip to Baltimore, the team will be performing at various venues, as well as holding several special events. The team’s line-up of pubic appearances over the next month reads more like a rock-start tour schedule!
There will be a public Disco party on Friday, March 9th at the Crystal Ballroom from 6-8 PM. The team will also be performing at the Dance Club of Central Florida on Sunday March 11th and at the USA Dance on Friday, March 16th at the Bahia Shrine Auditorium in Maitland FL. Additionally, they are also performing at a UCF Men’s Basketball game and a Magic Game.
The Culture in Dance youth ballroom program is a great place for young people to learn the art/sport of ballroom dance. Students in the Culture in Dance program learn the Salsa, Cha-Cha, Swing, Tango, Waltz…and the list goes on. Certified and experienced instructors insure the quality of dance instruction for these young ballroom dancers. There are many opportunities for public performances, and visions of local school tournaments are well within reach if the program succeeds. Graduation dances are also held throughout the year to celebrate the completion of a particular level of dance. To read more about this program, please click here to see a separate article.
Congratualtions to Culture in Dance!
