Dec 2012

Here are all the acts from our last Showcase in April. Many thanks to Dawn Neuhart for the photos and Josh Wannamaker for the video capture

For video, Click on the links after the description.

It was a packed house with over 140 people in the audience and over 20 performers. There were a couple of new standouts. At the last minute (literally) I asked Lindsay to kick off the show and kick off she did. She got the crowd all warmed up. What an act to follow. I am looking forward to having back in my next show if she doesn't become famous by then.

Act 1
Lindsay Sommers

Elaine has danced in my last 5 showcases. Here she is performing a waltz.

Next up was a mock competition to help prepare the SJSU Dancesport Spartans for their competition in Stanford the following day. For many it was their first taste of competition and getting used to dancing in front of an audience while having to navigate around other dancers. They performed a Waltz, Tango and a Fox trot


Bud and Richelle perform the first of their three dances together and one of 4 performance by Richelle that evening

The team returns. This time new dancers compete in Cha Cha, Rumba and Samba

Back for Routine Number 2. Bud and Richelle dance a Tango Cha Cha Medley.

Lindsay is back with her second number "Popular" with a little help from her BFF

In the spirit of encouraging my student, I often invite my coach to show that I have to practice to keep my technique sharp. Here we are performing an International Rumba to "Skyfall"

That brought our first act to an end.

My formation team started the the second for three of the members it was their first formation team routine. One of our members started dancing in January and did a great job with this complicated routine. Half the team had been dancing less than a year. Need less to say I was quite proud of their performance.

Lady team members Carol Kromer, Richelle Gali, Thina Tran and Katharine Brinker
Gentlemen members were Shaq Pashtunyar, Scott Sahlman, Ken Alfson and Anthony Lopez

One of our team members has two very talented daughters who love to sing. They performed for us last year so we welcomed them back to sing once more. Kaylynn and Candace Cromer sing " Titanium"

Its been a a year since Deborah and I were able to perform. Her foot injury has pretty much kept her off the floor. But she's stayed healthy and we were able to perform a waltz to one of her's and my favorite songs.

I am so proud of Ming Sum Lai. She started our 4 years ago. I have enjoyed watching her dancing improve to the level she has achieved so far, Her choreography skills are developing as well. Ming Sum choreographed this routine. She and Total were also a big hit in my showcase back in August 2012.

This next routine was one of fastest creations. In less than 2 hours, I was able to put this dance together for a couple of very dedicated students. A lot of the moves I choreographed were for more advanced dancers but I knew these two were up to the challenge and they did as spectacular job. Listen to how the crowd reacts to this routine.

To end the show, I put my new prodigy to the test. Here she is back for her fourth performance. Dancing a Samba.

As with any show. There are so many things that go on that most people aren't aware of so I want to thanks my many volunteers for their time and effort in helping make this show as great as it was.
