Top Routines at the November Showcase
In case you missed it, the November Showcase was the largest and most successful digital event we've had to date. With nearly 200 routines over two days, in four separate categories, there was a little something for everyone.
Being that 2020 has been a year of both challenge and innovation, the digital events have come a long way this year to say the least. But keeping with the spirit of trying new things, this November Showcase saw the birth of a new idea for the Arthur Murray Live events:
The Best in Show Awards.
We tasked our guest judge, and Arthur Murray Fremont franchisee, Richard Myers with selecting his favorite routines in each of the four categories, Competitive, Broadway, Nightclub, and Disney.
While the caliber of routines made for some difficult choices, here are the top routines in each of the categories.
Day 1: Sean Delayney - Viennese Waltz - AM Fremont
Day 2: MC Gadeau - Viennese Waltz - AM Redwood City
Day 1: Heidi Jenkins - Bachata - AM Livermore
Day 2: Justin Zimmerman - Lindy Hop - AM Walnut Creek
Day 1: Jeanette Peterson - Foxtrot - AM Livermore
Day 2: Brooke Robbins - Viennese Waltz - AM Hayward
Day 1: Tiffani Hale - Paso Doble - AM Hayward
Day 2: Joe Butchart - Tango - AM Walnut Creek
One of the most important, often overlooked, details of an event like this is how much time, effort, and confidence it takes to perform in front of any audience. Each and every student had the choice to participate, and definitely wouldn't have, if they didn't feel prepared to do so.
This show was filled with performances that not only provided great entertainment, but also the best award that wasn't mentioned, proof of progress. Congratulations to all of our participants.
