Such a sad story in the college town of Isla Vista. We give our condolences everyone affected by this tragedy. http://ow.ly/i/5HmeP
Well, we can’t hide it anymore. We’re guilty! We have been watching Dancing With the Stars nonstop, and we just can’t seem to take our eyes off Meryl and Maks. The two have such great chemistry and have been continuously bringing it. Two weeks ago they got a perfect score, 10s across the border from all judges and we couldn’t agree more. This week they surprised us once again. We can’t say salsa is our favorite dance, but their contemporary take on it was amazing. Who knew Meryl had it in her? What do you guys think of it? Let us know!
Our movie of the week is an absolute classic. “Center Stage” tells the story of 12 young dancers competing for a spot in the American Ballet Company, and who are willing to do anything to get it. This classic shows us how the dance world works, behind the scenes. And it has everything you need in a movie, the love triangle, drama and high-stakes. Oh and how could we forget, amazing choreography! Check it out and let us know what you think about it!
As you may know, we love dancing. But most of all we love teaching others how to dance and develop their techniques. We have a lot of fun when we’re surfing the web and finding new dance clips, movies and etc. But our personal favorite is when we get to see children dancing and absolutely killing it (much like our own students). So you can only imagine how happy we were when we found this Buzzfeed article spotlighting 16 incredibly talented kids! Some of them are a little more funny than the others, but you know what? They each have their unique dance style and make us at A Step in Time proud! Parents, we’re looking at you to bring your children in, so that they can one day too, kill the club! (Buzzfeed)
Since we’ve been working with dance for so long we understand the power of it, but it’s truly amazing to see other people experience it. Ben Aaron, a producer and presenter for NBC decided to go out on the street and dance with people. What we really love about this video is the different songs each group of people asked to dance to. Anyone want to go dance on the streets of NY with us? (Superstar Magazine)
Anyone else’s mind blown away by this “Cartoon Girl?” http://bit.ly/1fO16Dm #dance #performance #video
Matt Harding traveled to 42 countries in 14 months. What he did in those 14 months was beautiful. Stick through the whole thing because it’s worth it, and truly inspiring. We wanted to jump around and dance with him, but most importantly we wished we were in the video with him. Who doesn’t want to dance in 42 different countries with hundreds of different people?!
The Star Systems National Talent Competition is a dance competition, that we have competed in for years. The regional competition we participated in happened from February 28 to March 3 and we had amazing results! Our Seniors won Elite High Gold and High Gold honors, and our Teens and Juniors both won High Gold and Gold honors.
That being said, congratulations to our honored dancers: Makena Cavarozzi, Taylor Magon, Mia Mormino, Erin Lamothe, Amanda Cohen, Hannah Caplan, Kortney Jennings, Ava Izadi, Amanda Evans, Mia Brookenthal, Keira Kleinfinger, Asia Umali, Camryn Chambers and Rachel Luner.
Our not-so-guilty pleasure “Dancing With The Stars” has finally revealed its new lineup of competitors, and we can’t even hide our enthusiasm! The lineup is pretty good and we’re especially excited because our two favorite Olympians, Meryl Davis and Charlie White, will be competing for DWTS’s 18th season’s gold. Although the two are accustomed to working together, the duo will be separated for this friendly competition. Davis will be dancing with returning pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and White with professional dancer Sharna Burgess.
Our Olympians will be facing former child stars Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar, as well as housewife NeNe Leaks. They will also be squaring off against athletes Diana Nyad, Amy Purdy, and former pro hockey player Sean Avery. Stars Cody Simpson, James Maslow, Billy Dee Williams and comedian Drew Cary are the four other Hollywood celebrities Davis and White will compete with.
We’re pretty excited to see how Davis and White will transition from the ice rink to the dancefloor, but we’re guessing they’ll be just fine! What do you guys think? (CNN)
From the very first moment sisters Quincy and Gracie Latkovski were wheeled onto stage, we could tell it was going to be an emotional performance. Gracie, who uses a wheelchair due to effects of Cystic Fibrosis and Cerebral Palsy has been dancing since she was 3 years-old. This past weekend, the now 9-year-old took on the Jamfest Dance Super Nationals in Kentucky with her sister Quincy.
The duet began with both girls in wheelchairs, but Quincy soon stood up and twirled around her sister in their choreographed dance to “Reflections.” The audience was in awe of the Latkovski sisters and we can saw we were also inspired and moved by their performance. Quincy and Gracie took the national championship in the special needs category. (FOX 19)
