This Sunday come and support our students dancing at the Manhattan Amateur Classic – a large and important regional event! Team ‘Basic Ballroom’ will be wearing their team spirit jackets – you will not be able to miss us in the crowd!
SEE US, LIKE US, CHEER US ON!!!
On our last day of the Winter Dance Camp, we were fortunate to have Spencer Nyemchek – an IDSF Certified Adjudicator and NDCA National Judge, co-organizer of the United States Junior DanceSport Alliance and Nyemchek’s Junior All-Star DanceSport Championships. Spencer started his dance career at the age of 12 and competed as a Junior, Youth, and Adult Amateur before turning professional. Today, he is one of the most knowledgeable professionals in our country when it comes to junior dancing, and we are very happy to have him guest-teach at our dance camp!
Our 3rd day of camp had even more students attending, and featured a guest seminar by Viktoriya Drubetskaya, who is a former United States Rising Star Latin Champion and United Kingdom Rising Star Latin Finalist, two-time World Mambo Champion, Grand Master of Dance by DVIDA, Certified Movement Analyst by Laban Institute of Movement Studies.
Our 2nd day seminar was taught by Renata Shvarts, the WDSF and WDC World Class Judge, President of the Junior Dancesport Athletes Association (JADA), and Founder of Basic Ballroom Dance Studios. She shared with students some very important strategies they should have and use when competing, which would help them improve their overall results at competitions.
We will see you on the 26th for our 3rd day of the dance camp!

Guest coach: Vadim – a renown Ukrainian dance trainer and choreographer, a coach to many Ukrainian national pre-teen, junior, youth and adult champions.
