On October 27th, 2013 the Tropicana Dance Challenge was held at the Hilton Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida.
We had four students competing from the Longwood Ballroom, who all worked very hard preparing for this event. At the end of the evening when the Top Awards were presented, we saw that their dedication really paid off.
Some of these awards are listed below:
Eileen Zielinski – Top 6 in Smooth Scholarship, Lori Gates – Top Overall Silver Female Student, Christine Wachs – Great placements in all dances, Jackie Pantello – 2nd Place Standard Scholarship.
As a result of everyone’s terrific dancing, the Longwood Ballroom earned 2nd Place Top Studio and Rick Elliott won Top Teacher of the whole competition.
Also to note: Steve Bandor dancing with his instructor Jessica Kaufman, won the Top Overall Bronze Male Student.
We are so proud of all of the Longwood Ballroom students and cannot wait for our next competition coming soon!
Thank you to everyone who came out to join us for this year’s
Halloween Dance Party!
The costumes were great and we really enjoyed dancing the night
away with such a fun group of people.
Looking forward to many more exciting dance parties in the future.
Rick has had the honor of assisting Kym Johnson with choreography for Joey Fatone and Warren Sapp in the “Dancing with the Stars” television series!
