The Lost Art of Social Dancing
July 25th, 2011

I have to say that I am a tad disappointed to see that more competitors don’t come out to Robson Square. I know that everyone is super-busy and that there are a million other things to do, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say… I suspect (and you can all comment and correct me if I’m wrong) that many competitors don’t come, because they are not comfortable dancing outside their comfort zones!


The Return of Robson Square
July 21st, 2011

Ever since I first started ballroom dancing, I remember looking forward to Robson Square every Friday night during the summer months. I was so sad to hear that it was not happening during the renovations for the Olympics…but after a 3 year hiatus, I am thrilled that it’s finally back!


The Magic of Friendship and Goodwill
December 10th, 2009

andkatLast weekend was our annual December Magic year-end party. Every year, we are so tired by the end of the fall season, teaching numerous group lessons (our Rising Star Squad & UBC Dance Club) and preparing our students for various competitions (like the Grand Ball & Holiday Dance Classic), that Joel often becomes quite reluctant to hold December Magic. Every year, I push and I shove, and we end up having a great time! This time, after our 6th year of hosting December Magic, we are once again both happy that we organized such a fun event for everyone to enjoy!
