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!
