Atlantic DanceSport Challenge  June 9th 2012

     This year the Atlantic DanceSport Challenge was held at the Pikesville, Hilton which was a convenient 1 mile drive from our studio.  We got dressed, did make-up and hair at the studio, then drove to the Hilton all decked out and ready to DANCE!!!  This comp is a one day event which had Smooth at 8:00 AM then Rhythm at 1:00 PM.  This is our 3rd year in attendance at this venue hosted by Igor and Polina.  We had 5 dancers join in the festivities this year.  Dian, Karen, Sue, Karl, & Patty danced with either John or Michelle in Pro/Ams,  Then, Karl & Patty entered 10 heats together and did very well.  Michelle and John are so thrilled and proud of everyone's results and efforts.
