RSF Tricks and Treats!

November 5th, 2011

I am still recovering from last weekend in Atlanta where we had a “Spooktacular” time! It was the weekend before Halloween and there were plenty of tricks and treats to be seen on and off the dance floor. Competitors were treated to a first rate Rising Star Friendly event in the stunning Peachtree Ballroom of [...]

The fast pace of high fashion in the ballroom at USDC was at a fever pitch this year. Every dancer wants to find that perfect look that will set them apart and help them to get noticed when they’re on the floor with dozens of other couples at the same time. So costume designers pull [...]

I’m flying home early from The Greenville Newcomer’s Challenge to be with my son who turns ten years old today.

The Importance of a Good Coach

August 23rd, 2010

We recently had some amazing, world-class coaches come to Academy Ballroom Atlanta, and I had someone ask me if I thought it was worth the extra expense of taking lessons with these pros. My response was an emphatic YES!!! You have the expertise, knowledge, and the third eye of someone who can not only give you [...]
