BALLROOM DANCERS GO TOE-¬TO-¬TOE IN TAMPA BAY DANCE-¬OFF

TAMPA, Fla. - Ballroom and Latin dancers from around the country are gathering for the 10th Annual Florida Superstars Dancesport Championships. Wearing their most enchanting outfits, dancers hope to dazzle the judges as they compete for $85,000 in cash and prizes at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Downtown Tampa, where the ballroom will be decked out in a Venetian Masquerade theme.

“This is an exciting and glamorous spectator sport where cheering for your favorite couples is all part of the fun!” said Michael Chapman, event organizer. “You’ll see amazing dancers of every age and skill level, from talented professionals and youths to dedicated students dancing with their teachers, just like on Dancing with the Stars. See them perform the Cha Cha, Rumba, Waltz, Quickstep, Jive and more. The competition runs morning to night, so you can come for a session or stay for the entire day.”

On Friday and Saturday nights, Craig Smith and Natalie Woolf of South Africa, reigning World Exhibition Champions, perform their amazing acrobatic and artistic show. Plus, the winners of each professional division will face-off in the Anything Goes Showdown and compete against each other for the Grand Prize.
