Highlights from Our 2024 Celebrity Challenge and Team Match

Step into a world of excitement and entertainment as we reminisce about our Celebrity Challenge and Team Match, held on April 13, 2024, at our Marietta dance studio. The Silver team and the Gold team were ready and the atmosphere was alive as our students gathered to showcase their talent and passion for dance. From captivating smooth and rhythm performances to thrilling team matches, the event was a true celebration of skill, creativity, and camaraderie. Let’s take a spin through the magical moments of this unforgettable day.

As the doors opened, the studio buzzed with energy and excitement. Dancers of all ages and levels poured in, eager to share their love for dance with the world. The competition featured a diverse array of dance styles, from sultry rumba to high-energy swing to sassy foxtrot. Our competition starting roster participants were: Alex Blanco, Lora Lee Stewart, Carlos & Carmela Merced, Zay & Holly Risinger, Ashley Fowler, Theresa Pastorelli, Wendell & Yvette Hill, Rachelle Corpus, and Jeff & Roxane McDaniel.

Throughout the day, the studio was alive with laughter, cheers, and applause as dancers dazzled the audience with their talent and creativity. We started the day with our smooth dances, and ended our day session with our rhythm dances after a yummy lunch from Jason’s Deli. Each moment was filled with joy and enthusiasm, creating an atmosphere of pure magic and excitement. Our judge, Tamsyn Rockwell, said it was one of the best in-house mini competitions she had the pleasure to adjudicate with everyone looking the part and showing incredible improvement in their dancing. As professional dance instructors, it is the best compliment we can get to hear that our students are noticeably improving.

As the day drew to a close, the highlight of the event was undoubtedly the highly anticipated Team Match. After a delicious dinner catered by Carrabas Italian Restaurant, the studio erupted into cheers as the Silver Squad, lead by Josh & Donna, and the Gold Gang, lead by Reece & Kyra, took to the floor for an epic showdown. With crazy silly tasks and infectious energy, the teams delivered electrifying performances that had the audience cheering loud enough to shake the building.

In the end, it was the Silver Team who emerged victorious, after the 6 week festival and the evening of friendly competition.
