Sometimes size matters! This year’s U.S. National Amateur Latin Championships took over Provo, Utah’s gargantuan Marriott Center, one of the three largest campus arenas in the nation: over 10,000 seats bursting with enthusiasm, vibrating with excitement, and thrumming with anticipation.
This year’s Millennium DanceSport Championships has attracted over 1400 adults with its revolutionary Candyland theme, but the real treat was saved for young athletes who received an experience like never before.
This past weekend was all about the City Lights Star Tours! Over $100,000.00 will be awarded between 2 styles over 5 competitions. $50,000.00 to the City Lights Star Ballroom Tour and $50,000.00 for the City Lights Star Rhythm Tour. The first leg of the City Lights Star Ballroom Tour took place at the Yankee Classic Saturday, June 20th and the City Lights Star Rhythm Tour Sunday June 21st. There are still 4 legs to go but the excitement is already building up.
