September 2022 Newsletter

September has been a very eventful month for Dance Amadis Ballroom and its students. The Ballroom kicked off the month with a secret destination event. On September 3rd, the students arrived at the studio at 1pm for a reception. Here, they enjoyed champagne, grapes, and cheese before carpooling to New Smyrna Beach for the Sangria Social on Flagler Avenue.

Everyone received a Tasting Passport that granted them free samples of red and wine sangria at nine different locations. These included Crabby’s Bar & Grill, Peanut’s Sports Pub & Grub, Flagler Tavern, Manzano’s Beachside Deli, Galleria di Vetro, Clean Karma Jewelry, Clancy’s Cantina, Café Heavenly, and Mermaid Café. Several locations served signature sangrias like the Dragon Fruit Sangria and Apple Pie Sangria. The Dance Amadis Ballroom students spent over three hours tasting samples all over Downtown New Smyrna Beach.

After the Sangria Social, the dancers traveled to Beaches Daytona for a delicious dinner. Beaches is a new location that has a remarkable ambiance and a great dancefloor where the students can show off their moves. Live music was provided by a popular local R&B, funk, and soul band, Then2Now.

Just two days later, on September 5th, Dance Amadis Ballroom owners and students traveled to the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando to attend the United States Dance Championship organized by Wayne Eng. On September 10th, the students watched the Professional 10 Dance and 9 Dance Competition Open to the World. The 10 Dance included the Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz,Foxtrot, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Pasodoble, and Jive. The 9 Dance included the Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba, East Coast Swing, Bolero, and Mambo. Dance Amadis Ballroom students got to watch professional dancers from all over the world compete for first place. Seeing how far it is possible to get with dance is always encouraging to those students who are just starting out. The night ended with a beautiful Professional Cabaret performance. Although the festivities did not end until well after midnight, no one was complaining, and everyone left the event buzzing.

On September 17th, Dance Amadis Ballroom hosted its open-to-the-public Dancing on the Beach event in Flagler Beach. Unfortunately, due to Florida’s everchanging weather, after just one hour of dancing, strong winds and rain started up. However, the dancers were determined to not let bad weather stop to their fun, and many of them moved the party to the Dance Amadis studio. Here, the partygoers danced and ate delicious food for another three and a half hours. Rain or shine, dancers will always find a way to have a good time!Unfortunately, this long hot summer is coming to an end. However, as we look back on the fond memories of the last several months, this farewell does not have to be a sad one. To keep the party going, the owners of Dance Amadis Ballroom are hosting an Oktoberfest party at their studio on October 12th at 6pm. Attendees will enjoy a night of beer, pretzels, games, performances, and dancing. Everyone is encouraged to wear costumes! This party is open to the public; everyone is invited to join Dance Amadis Ballroom in ushering the fall festivities.
