The Philippine Nurses Association Maryland Chapter PNAMC

Fundraising Gala Event at the Hyatt  Friday August 2nd, 2013

     What an amazing evening of dance, entertainment, and good times.  Cora, a dear friend and passionate Ballroom dancer, asked John and the staff of StudioDNA to coordinate and produce the entertainment for their PNAMC Fundraising event held at the Hyatt in Baltimore on Light Street.  John with assistance of Patty danced with clients and taught private & group lessons weeks before the event to prepare.  Many dances were represented that evening in order to entertain and share with the crowd the talents of the PNAMC members and StudioDNA dancers too.  The importance of Ballroom & Latin dances are crucial for diversity of social events.  Of course, there were lots of line dances too and a mix of classic and pop music for couples and singles throughout the night.

      DJ JohnnyD started off the evening with an hour of soft favorites during dinner and then the Showcase dancers got ready to perform.  Prior to the dancing, we had announcements by Virginia, the President.  What an honor it is to know this talented, strong, and dedicated woman.  Next, Love sang the National Anthem & then a recording of the Philippine National Anthem was played.   Then, our dance performers hit the floor!  We had 16 numbers to squeeze in an hour's time and of course we nailed it!  Our dancers did such a great job and StudioDNA wishes to acknowledge them and THANK them for their dedication and time...their names & dances are listed below under their picture.

      We started off the DJ party mix promptly after the Showcases and danced the night away.  A special thank to the following StudioDNA clients for coming to join us that evening: Katie & Justin, Karl, Dian, Roy, Bernice & Michael & Fran, Ed, Carmen & LudTHANK YOU PNAMC for having StudioDNA come share in this wonderful evening of dance with you and your guests.
