Marilyn Tucker danced in Bronze American Smooth and placed 1st in 14 dances and 2nd in two more. In her Multi-Dance Championship she placed 3rd in a heavily contested group. This was her first time competing with Guillermo in this style. Great job!
Deanna Stanton danced in Silver American Smooth and placed 1st in all her single dances. In her Multi-Dance Championship she came in 2nd (but taking 1st in the Foxtrot). She danced the best she had ever danced showing great improvement in her quality of movement and her showmanship.
We are extremely proud of our students and their beautiful ballroom dancing and showmanship as they represented By Your Side Dance Studio. Congratulations!

Get Started With Competitive Ballroom Dancing
Have you ever thought about dancing in a ballroom dancing competition? Guess what? It’s really easy to start and it’s a whole lot of fun! Plus, you will become a much better ballroom dancer much more quickly when you are practicing your butt off for that upcoming ballroom dancing competition!
How does it work? Basically you will compete against similar amateur dancers based on your ballroom dancing proficiency (Bronze, Silver and Gold levels) and your chosen style of dance. Visit this link for more information on the ballroom dancing medal system.
For Pro/Am events, you (the amateur) will be dancing with your ballroom dance instructor (the pro). This makes the whole experience much less intimidating and much more rewarding because you will be dancing with and experienced ballroom dancer right there by your side.
Competitive ballroom dancing is about setting a goal and getting there. If your goal is to become a good ballroom dancer then practicing for a ballroom dancing competition will get you there much more quickly and with an attention to dance style and technique that you may not achieve with your regular dance lessons.
