Denver Dance Competition Fun
Who ever thought being judged was fun? The truth is that we are judged every day in some way. But the judges at the Denver dance competition are teachers by day and rooting for you as they make their marks. Nine teachers at the Colorado Star ball who want the best for you. What a fun way to look at dance competition.
Students from Adventures in Dance took this point of view before traveling to the Westin Westminster for this Denver dance competition. Each competitor picked their goal for what they wanted to improve at this event and went before the panel of positive judges to strut their stuff.
Latin Dance with Jessica
Jessica Virgo chose to improve her open international Latin dancing at the Denver dance competition. She performed three times her Cha-cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive. Jessica improved on her timing and expression on all these dances. We are very proud of how she danced.
All 4 styles in one Denver dance competition
Melvin Marcusson danced all four styles over the four days of the Denver dance competition. On Thursday Melvin danced the gold international Latin Cha-cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive. Friday flag day he danced the American smooth with his patriotic partner sporting a three-cornered hat. His dances were waltz, tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, and Peabody.
Weekend dance fun
Mr. Marcusson had great fun over the weekend. Saturday, he danced his American rhythm dances. Those included the Cha-cha, Rumba, Mambo, Bolero, and Swing. Sunday was wonderful with the international standard ballroom dances. Mel danced his Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Quickstep. At 90 Melvin’s goal is to not forget his dance routines. He succeeded in remembering everyone even with other dancers and judges on the floor.
William Hooker had the opportunity to dance his open Latin routines in Cha-cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive with Holly Tomazin. He was moved to the ladies a category to have competition. It is always difficult for gentlemen to compete against the lady students. Bill loved having someone other than Robyn to dance against. He did a great job with these challenging routines and looks forward to doing even better next time.
Open standard ballroom
Robyn Collins was looking forward to competing against someone other than her partner William. That was not the case this year. No one was brave enough to go up against her this time in the Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. However, Robyn rose to the challenge and improved her dancing with Craig the second time around and ended strong. Way to go Robyn!
10 dance challenge
This year we chose to put William and Robyn against each other in the open 10 dance category. They were marked individually for each dance, and the dancer with the most 1st places in Cha-cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive, Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep won. Our goal is always to have an unbreakable tie, but that did not happen. William Hooker took the crown winning the most dances against Robyn this year. We are proud of how they both performed.
Bill and Robyn have been preparing new open smooth routines to take to New Orleans in a couple of weeks. They seized on the opportunity to floor their new choreography at the Denver Competition. The floor was all theirs as they danced their Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. Robyn looked lovely in her new blue dress. They met their goal for the first performance of their open routines.
