Dear dancers and friends of the community,

We are so excited to present this unique and one of a kind showcase which combines Pro/Am, Amateur and Professional Solo Showcases with Competition in all Ballroom, Latin, Swing and Social dance styles. Joining us are esteemed Chicago Adjudicators Peter Minkov, Yulia Kornilova and Tommye Giacchino who will be judging the “single & multi dance events” and providing constructive feedback to our dancers with numeric scores and judges commentaries. We are also offering a complimentary Latin Technique Lecture to be taught by Erwin and Iwona Rybczynski. To cap off the day of performances, we are offering Line Dancing and a Jack & Jill Competition, both that are open to all participants and spectators.

We are thrilled to have two professional photographers who will be providing photo coverage throughout the day. As a token of appreciation to our fellow friends for joining us and supporting us at our first showcase, we will be giving away these professionally photographed digital pictures for free. We are excited to have Josh Torres join us as our Disc Jockey for the day. Zakar Video Production will be our Videographer for the event.
