On Friday, June 21st, we kicked off the summer with our annual summer spotlight. The students wowed us with fresh routines and the food and wine wasn’t too shabby either! Guests who dropped by enjoyed general dancing and a lucky few were given complimentary lessons to see what dancing at Arthur Murray Etobicoke is all about. If you weren’t able to make it out to this event, fret not. We have a promotional offer going on for the summer, try a sample lesson for a single or couple for $10!
There’s been so much going on and we’re only 10 days into the New Year!!!
For the New Year itself, we had a number of students and staff head to the Viennese World Championships & New Years Gala in Vienna, Austria! I’m extremely proud to report that we had a number of Champions return!! Denise took 1st place, Ute took a 2nd place, Eric took a 3rd place, and we had a number of students who qualified for the semi-finals!!! We are very proud of everyone and so glad you all had an amazing time!!! (pssst – stay tuned for some pix!!!)
Yesterday we Jonathan Roberts & Anna Trebunskaya from Dancing With The Stars in the house!!! The coaching they provided was amazing, and we are always honoured to have these amazing coaches visit! We’re already booking up for Daniel Heroux in March, so if you want a spot, speak now!
Coming up this month, we have some more specialty dances in the group classes, so make sure you’re here for those! This Friday, we have a Wine & Cheese Party so bring a little something to share, and we’ll all celebrate being back together on the Dance Floor! Next Friday is our Pro Show and then we finish the month with a TEAM MATCH! This time, we are asking for no props, so get creative with your Team Cheers and we’ll see who has the most fun!!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
Check it out!!! Got some AMAZING pix, special thanks to Rocco & Trevor for sharing these with us!!
|Team Match Nov 4 2011|
It’s been a little while since I wrote a little something to keep everyone up-to-date on what’s going on around here. SO here goes!
We’ve had a really busy fall so far, with Medal Ball, Food Drives, AMAZING AllStar Tournament Wins and a truly incredible Spotlight Night. This fall has been really fun, and things are just going to keep going forward! We’re really excited about everything coming up.
First and foremost, we have some students attending Superama Las Vegas, and they will be leaving this Wednesday! We’re wishing them the best of luck! Also, during that weekend, our AllStar Winners (Steve & Cynthia) will be competing for the WORLD AllStar Title!! We’re pretty proud of them too 🙂
While they’re all off in Las Vegas, we’ll be having a “killer” Halloween Costume Party, Friday October 28th! Yorkville will be joining us for this one, so it’s definitely going to be a “treat”! Get creative!
Next we’re having a Team Match November 4th! Now, for those of you who are new to Team Match, the winner is whoever has the most FUN!!! So, get loud, get your colours on, and show some team spirit!!! Not to mention, there will be a celebrity judge so you better be there to see who that is!! Really, do not miss this one 🙂
As the holiday season approaches, we’re having our Christmas Star Ball on November 26th, at the Royal York Hotel. Not only will this be an amazing Pro Am event for our students, but our annual Christmas Party AND there will be a Professional Competition! There’s something for everyone, and I can’t wait to see you all there. Following this event, Daniel Heroux will be in the studio for private coaching sessions, he’s already getting booked, so get your spot ASAP!
To close out the year, a number of our students will be attending the World Viennese Waltz Championships in Vienna, Austria for a New Years Eve Gala!!! We are SO impressed with the hard work going into this, and wish you all the best of luck! (not to mention a great place to ring in the New Year!)
So that about covers it for now, stay tuned for move information on what’s coming up when and we’ll see you on the dancefloor!!!
So, this weekend (Saturday, August 13th) our Yorkville Location was a “stop” for CityChase!!! How cool is that? It was AMAZING!!!
So what IS CityChase? According to their website:
“The Mitsubishi City Chase Powered by GoodLife Fitness is a unique urban adventure that requires participants to exhibit teamwork, resourcefulness, determination and the ability to make decisions on the fly as they search for ChasePoints scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. ChasePoints are designed to test teams with a variety of physical, intellectual, adventurous and humorous challenges.
To conquer this 4-6 hour urban event, 2-person teams will run, walk and use public transit to navigate their way throughout the city, while calling family and friends for help, accessing the Internet, and even employing assistance of total strangers. The first team to complete the required ChasePoints and cross the finish line WINS.”
So basically, what happened was about 300-400 people popped by for a dance lesson!!! It was a great experience for all of us, and hopefully we’ll have some pics at some point! BIG thanks to all the staff of Yorkville & Etobicoke Arthur Murray’s for your enthusiasm and general amazing-ness!
