Hello Everyone!

Just a few small notes today for your reading pleasure. First, I’ve just received word that our own Tony Dovolani is in his home country of Albania, along with professional partner Elena Grinenko, to be given an award. We don’t know much more at the moment, but as soon as Tony returns to U.S. soil, expect more details here on the blog! Remember that if you’d like to take lessons from Tony and Elena, you can visit us at Ballroom Dance Channel.

The fun doesn’t stop there. Details are beginning to emerge about the upcoming show on NBC, Superstars of Dance, which premieres on January 4th before moving to it’s regular Monday night slot starting on January 5th. I’m so excited about this show, which is being produced by Nigel Lithgoe, the brains behind So You Think You Can Dance. The Fred Astaire national blog reported over the weekend that 2 of their instructors, Georgia Ambarian and Eric Luna, will be competing for the United States on the show. Georgia and Eric dance at the Fred Astaire in Cinco Bayou, Florida. Stay tuned to our blog for more details about the show as they emerge.

If you’re looking for a great way to spend some of the extra hours off work this week, why not give our free salsa lesson a try? Our lesson is taught by Yesenia Adame and Paul Barris, the pros that were featured in the salsa demonstration on season 7 of Dancing with the Stars. We hope you’ll enjoy it, and be inspired to try some of our other lessons as well. Have a great week!

Keep Dancing,
Ballroom Dance Channel
