The 2018 Fall Showcase photos are expiring! We need room on the TimeLine Media servers for 2019 events. Of course, I need to thank everyone that purchased photos. Without a doubt, we could not continue our coverage without you! Until May 6, the photos will be available here:
To conclude this event, the staff at the studios put on a great holiday show! Certainly the holiday season is easy to tap for themed dances. Not only are the colors for the costumes recognizable, but the music can also tie-in. At the same time, the Ashburn formation wore flannel to channel a cold winter day.
Lastly, I wanted to highlight the Columbia, Maryland studio group formation. The danced a Waltz to an a cappella holiday track. For me, this was a strong performance. The choreography matched well with the music, and the dancing was coordinate so well among them. Being that they do not have a lot of time to rehearse in the space, it was well spaced on the floor. Even though they were in group, they also had some speed through their movement. Their changes in direction made it look like a holiday decoration!
The 2019 Spring Freestyles have been released at the TimeLine Media proofing site! On this occasion we have over 8500 photos sorted by studio. Because all the gentlemen wore numbers, it was easier to place them. While they are available, the link will be:
At this time, we had some new equipment that we started using. Although it has not been long since the last event, we ran into issues. I want to keep things fresh similarly to the dancers this weekend. For one thing, they have learned new steps. Moreover some may have moved up in a dance level. So we have some new laptops but they need to be broken in. At least we made it through the weekend with an understanding of how they work. Accordingly this is just like dancing at a new Arthur Murray event!
The photos from the 2018 Fall Freestyles are expiring! Without a doubt this is the largest amount of photos from one event posted. Of course we want to thank everyone that visited, shared, and purchase photos! Until they are archived, the photos will be available here:
Once all the awards were given out, the event finished with professional shows. In addition to the couples that danced, there were two studios that performed formations! Being that these are the most technical dancers, these made a big impact on the show. For one thing, they can spread out across the dance floor. Compared to single dancers, they can bring the dancing much closer to the crowd. Moreover, it was a nice contrast to see groups out there along with the single couples. In general, these performances were worth the price of admission!
