Tis the Season to be Dancing!Southeastern States Championships 2015

Report by Chantal Leclerc

For the past few years my holiday season has started at the beginning of December with a visit to the Orlando Renaissance Hotel at Sea World. This is the venue for the Southeastern States Dance Championship hosted by the team of Larry and Dianne Dean, 44 years in the business of turning out competitions that have set the highest standards in our industry for first class venues, world class shows, superb ballrooms, stunning gifts and warm welcomes.

There were a lot of us as well, adjudicators, professional dancers, and pro/am students, all getting leid by David Alvarez, the competition organizer, as we entered the luau on the lush grounds of the Sheraton Waikiki Beach. As a traditional welcome to Hawaii, beautiful orchid leis were distributed to everybody.

Oh What A Night!

The Ritz Carlton in Sarasota has always been one of my favorite hotels in the comp circuit and now with the multi million dollar renovations almost completed it will be hard to surpass.  Add to this the personal touch of Larry and Dianne Dean as comp organizers and you get the best of both worlds.  Spacious and luxurious rooms and surrounding, a well run comp that allows for students to enjoy the evenings, sumptuous food and a ballroom that was literally in bloom!  No wonder the competitors showed up!  The Florida State Championships had the most professional entries since being held at the Breakers Hotel!  

The Pro/Am categories were also well attended and here are some of the dancers who caught my attention:

That was the theme at this year’s Snowball Competition and as it turned out, quite a few dancers answered "YES" to that question and showed up in Minneapolis Jan. 10th and 11th, making 2015 the biggest in entry numbers to date!
