FORMS
ABOUT

      I cordially invite you to attend the 2015 Sunshine State Dancesport Competition, and ‘Feel the Miami Vibe!’  Come join world class dancers in this tradition, to witness and compete for greatness,

in sunny Miami Beach, Florida.

     First and foremost, I would like to thank all  competitors that attended the 2014 competition, I am pleased to say it was a great success, and hoping to see you in 2015.

      Every year I strive to astound the audience by implementing new themes and ideas, and taking

                       ballroom to new levels.  This year it will be no different, as I introduce this new theme:

                                   Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall...

                                   There will be great cash prizes for our competitors as always, and giveaways to

                                   attendees.  Amongst spectacular shows, we have a few surprise performances

                                   lined up this year.  Join in on the fun into a world of make believe and fairy tales.

 

                                 On Saturday April 25th, 2015, come experience my interpretation of the tale of

                              Snow White.  Featuring an Evil Queen, Snow white (of course,) both played by

                          surprise guests, and a special performance of a blizzard dance by the New York Ballet

                            Company.

                                  The Competition will be hosted at the glamorous Eden Roc Hotel, right on Miami

                                               Beach.  You are encouraged to come and experience this top luxury hotel.

                                                   The hotel's unique blend of retro style and modern-day luxury create an

                                                  exhilarating vibe for dance competition.  At the main entrance,  just feet

                                                      from the the dance floor, the hotel has it's own Starbucks. (As dancers,

                                                        we  all know how much we need our caffeine!) The hotel is located right

                                                           on Miami Beach and has a private section catering to hotel guests.

                                                               If you want to avoid the sand, there are four outdoor pools, each with

                                                                   a unique feel.

                                                                   So I invite you to come see world known dancers bring a fairy tale

                                                                   to life, through the Art of Dancing.

                                                                            I hope to see you there, it will be an experience to remember.

Sincerely,

Andrew Phillips
