Basic Ballroom’s founder Renata Shvarts was privileged to adjudicate this year’s WDSF Grand Slam’s final in Shanghai, China where world’s 12 top couples in Standard and 12 top couples in Latin were competing for the prestigious title of the 2013 Grand Slam Champion. Our studio is very proud for Renata having this amazing opportunity to be selected as a judge representing United States.
On Saturday, November 16th, 2013, our studio had the pleasure of hosting a great seminar organized by the Junior Athletes Dancesport Association (JADA). It was made possible with the help of the Dance Benefits Group and “Preciosa”, and had one of the world’s top coaches – Mr. Colin James!
