"We Wanna Dance" Ballroom Bash 2017 (pictures)

 

"We Wanna Dance" Ballroom Bash IV Saturday, September 16, 2017!

Our featured pros for "We Wanna Dance" Ballroom Bash IV were Gordon and Kate Bratt from the Twin Cities area.  The afternoon session included a swing workshop ("Rotations and Swing") and an American tango workshop.  In addition to social dancing, the evening program featured several showcase dances:

  • Formation Foxtrot performed by UNI Ballroom/Swing
    (Corey Spiess, Joseph Tibbs, Phillip Baldwin, Amanda Laube, Bekka Voss, and Jennifer Curtis)
  • Formation Tango performed by the Hawkeye Ballroom Dance Company
    (Kathleen Peters, Shrey Sanadhya, Megan Corey, and Hannah McDonald)
  • East Coast Swing by Derek Pasqualetto and Laura Hand
  • American Tango by Gordon and Kate Bratt
  • Formation Swing by UNI Ballroom/Swing
  • Viennese Waltz by Derek Pasqualetto and Laura Hand
  • International five-dance exhibition by Markus Cannon and Dee Ianonne
  • American Viennese Waltz by Gordon and Kate Bratt

Our thanks to all who helped support the event -- planning and publicity, the five-hour set-up on Friday afternoon/evening, making the event run silky-smooth all afternoon and evening, and the two-hour tear-down Saturday night (into Sunday morning).
