I would like to invite you to my new project, NDCA sanctioned one day event- The City’s Dancesport Challenge! It is going to be my very first year running this competition and I am on my own without any partners for the first time. I always wanted to organize a local event in NYC area and to make it special in some way. Out of many choices of the venues I find myself very excited and felt very special at TWA Hotel and decided immediately- “This is It!” It is an iconic and very rich in history place, 2 years ago transformed out of a famous TWA Terminal in to the Hotel. I feel like we just discovered a new fabulous venue and our event is going to be the very first Ballroom Dance Competition they ever had. When it used to be a Terminal many famous politicians, movie stars, musicians, sport celebrities used to be regulars at this place. The iconic design will surprise you like no other hotel you have seen before. I would call it: “Back into the Future Experience!”
The format of this one day event is that all competing categories must be scheduled on Saturday December 19th. But the night before I would like to invite you to The Pre-Competition Black Tie Gala Dinner and Dancing with the fantastic shows. This year it’s my big pleasure to introduce to you the very beautiful ballroom couple, Russian and World Champions: Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova! It is also very special for all of us because they never danced in The US before. Come to see them live for the first time!
There are going to be more surprising invitational show performances and, of course, lots of general dancing for all of you. So I hope to make “The Arrival“ Holiday Season Friday Party a memorable tradition!
My goal is to create a high quality event with a great and fun atmosphere. So I will make sure that all the details are on high level like big floor size, decorations, professional lighting, awards, good schedule and timing of the event.
For many competitors it’s a perfect timing before the holidays and the end of the season, I hope we can make it very memorable together! Everyone is invited to “The Departure” Afterparty at the conclusion of the competition!
Also, I would like to mention that this Hotel has a fantastic heated open pool on the roof with a view of taking off planes. It’s heated and even open in December, so for all guests who will stay at the hotel I would recommend to check out this place.
And one more thing to mention is the location! Now it is super convenient to fly from any city in the World directly to JFK, stay at our TWA Hotel, compete, go to the City to experience all the fun and come back to the hotel to fly home. You can take advantage of our hotel special rate during the most exiting holiday session and combine dance competition with a holiday vacation!
There will be many good convenient perks such as discounted valley parking, free wi/fi for the guests and more. Please follow me on Facebook page The City’s Dancesport Challenge and on Instagram for more information, I will be posting many details about the event.
I’m feeling very excited, hoping to see you all there; your support is greatly appreciated by me on my first year. And please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions, I will be happy to help you!
“Come Fly with Me!”
