Ladies and Gents,
As you all know, students Sandy Nelson and Nick Rangel and our instructors/pro-partners Katie & Daniel and Katherine & John are heading to Las Vegas next week to compete at the Cross Country Dance Championship. They are very excited, so the Vegas fun is beginning tonight!
Viva Las Vegas Dance Party – TONIGHT
Come to the Studio as we bring Las Vegas to you! Ladies, wear colorful boas. Gents, wear Fedoras or visors like the card dealers.

There will also be a special appearance by the King himself – Michael Rose! If you went to the show at Villa Milano, you know this is a good time, guaranteed!
