Sizzling Hot Dancing in Cuba!

Thelma Negley and Jim Clemens
at the Havana Dancesport Classic
There's nothing like getting the New Year off to a great start with some sizzlin' hot dancing!  Jim Clemens and Thelma Negley brought home top honors from their recent trip to Cuba for the Havana Dancesport Classic.  Here are a few quotes from Thelma recounting her trip to the island just south of our Florida border:

"I honestly never go to a comp hoping or expecting to win, but this time, I did hope that I would be the one to make history, and someday my grandchildren might tell their children that their Grammy won First Place in the first Ballroom competition in Cuba.
I am very proud to report that I danced in both bronze and silver categories, and I won First Place Top Bronze, Forst Place Top Silver and First Place Overall.  I also won two Multi-Dance Challenges and first and second place in four Scholarship challenges."

Well done, Thelma!  Thanks for being a great representative for Modern Steps and the U.S. in this first-time competition in Cuba.  Congratulations on your success from all of us!

Progress Report: Great Dancing Just Ahead!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks but we are almost there!  Our new dance floor is just about complete and we are so excited to show it to you!  And even though there are lots of memories that were attached to the old floor, we know that the memories are the people and the joy that we get from dancing.  Keep watching for more updates--you'll be the first to know when we are ready to add new memories to our studio!
