On September 29, 2018, the Prestige Dancers performed to a crowd of 300 for the Affinia Healthcare’s Starburst Gala at the STIFEL Theater (Peabody Opera House). A fun time was had by all. The guests were so thrilled with the dance performances that they recorded most of the dances and 2 beginner programs sold quickly in the live auction following the dancing. For the performers, it was an amazing experience to perform on a stage that has hosted so many stars of the entertainment world and in a theater that is iconic for St. Louis. The Prestige Ballroom Dancers performed Tango, Cha Cha, Waltz, Rumba,Viennese Waltz, and Foxtrot. Our studio ham, Matt Morgan, was the emcee for the performances. In order not to miss even the smallest opportunity to sing in the STIFEL Theater, Catherine had to belt out a few measures from an opera!

On Saturday, June 18th the weather was hot, and our night of dancing was steamy during our Sultry Summer Night Showcase!! To start the night off right, the floor filled up for a beginner class as you can see (pictured to the left). Everyone was eager to get moving and delighted in practicing their beginner Tango, Rumba and Foxtrot steps. Dancing is always more fun when we are surrounded by friends, and there was no short supply of friends and family to share the night with.
As the night progressed, it was time for the big event we all had been waiting for, the performances! Three brave and daring students showed off their skills performing with their teachers. Carol and Josiah danced a spicy Salsa to “La Vida Loca” by Ricky Martin; Jacob and Jaysa danced a dramatic Tango to “Santa Maria” by The Gotan Project; and Audrey and Josiah danced a cheeky Cha cha to “Bad Habit” by The Kooks. We enjoyed a special staff number by Emi and Felix–an amazing Hustle danced to the Disco number “Secret Love Song” by Little Mix featuring Jason Derulo. Finally, our showcase was topped off with a multi-couple performance from our wonderful staff–a sexy Samba to “Going Down to Memphis” Choreographed by Bruce Hasson. Featured to the right you see two of our favorite staff members, Sage and Josiah simply having a blast!
The sizzling summer night continued with more dancing welcoming everyone to have an opportunity in the fun and concluding with a wonderful graduating ceremony (pictured below). It was so wonderful sharing all of our student’s hard work with you and seeing how it paid off. Thank you for joining a night filled with fun, dancing, and endless smiles. We can’t wait until next time; hopefully it will be you out there on the dance floor!!
Keep your eyes open for your opportunity to steal the show in our upcoming Fire & Ice Showcase in January of 2017!!
