Ladies and Gents,
We’re celebrating Mardi Gras this Friday at the Dance Studio! Some of you may have already decided on what you will be giving up for the next 40 days, and we hope this leaves room for more dancing!
Dance Party – Tomorrow (19th)
Be at the Dance Studio Friday night at 7:45pm. In lieu of the traditional group class, we will begin the evening with contests that will win you Mardi Gras beads. Get the most beads, and you will win a prize!
Attire for the evening – Think Mardi Gras! Wear a mask or carnival costume if you have one. It will be yet another fun night to be at the Studio!
In addition to the contests and prizes, there will be Spotlight Dances by Sandy Nelson and Kelli Schuster.
Katherine and John will also be performing a Spotlight Dance. They are competing in the Indiana Challenge 2010 next week in Merrillville, Indiana.
The Freddy Ball – Sunday, March 14th
We have a new competitor to The Freddy Ball – Mr. Nick Rangel. We know he will do well in next month’s dance competition and our spectators will be there to cheer for our Columbus Northwest Team!
A Date 2 Remember
Many thanks to everyone who came out to the CYP CLUB’s “A Date 2 Remember” at BoMA. The event raised more than $30,000 charity!
The winning bid for Mr. Daniel Tackett’s “Dance with a Star” date package was $1750. That number exceeded Daniel’s expectations! Date participant and student Dianna Williams helped Daniel sell his date package by joining him for a Cha Cha and Hustle on stage.
It was a fabulous evening with great food and entertainment, and it was all for two great non-profit organizations – A Kid Again and Capital Area Humane Society.
