An Inspiring Week

Hello Everybody! I am back! Yay 🙂

Last week I have been invited to judge the Hollywood Dancesport Championships in Los Angeles, a very prestigious Ballroom Dance Competition organized by Michael Chapman, Mary Murphy and Jonathan Roberts.

We also had students from our studio competing and my husband Dmitry was filming his Ballroom Backstage episodes with Interviews and Insights about the competition and the dancers.

Everybody came back very inspired, and we are getting ready for our Showcase on Saturday, so no breaks for us but that’s OK.

I have been asked about my outfits by so many people at the competition, many of the items I wore were actually from my own collection I am developing. I am not quite ready to launch yet but I am getting there, if you want to have first dibs or want to be among the first to know, please sign up for my email list, it is the best way to connect to me.

I have also been told by people that they would love to shop my closet or style and this is exactly what you can do here on this blog – if you like something, just click on the links and it takes you to the place where you can find it and purchase it.

If you have any questions, please let me know, you can either contact me or simply comment on the posts, I will be happy to hear from you.

My Weekend at the Sarasota Challenge

So, last weekend I have been judging the Sarasota Challenge, a Ballroom Dance Competition in Sarasota – Florida. Like usual, I took the red eye flight on Friday evening to the east coast, my tips to how survive those you can read in this previous post. I got it down to a science by now.

I wore one of my favorite outfits that I featured in a previous post as well. I got asked quite a few questions about it so you can you can check it out again here. I just love the soft and feminine look.

Since the weekend was busy with traveling and the competition, I only have some I phone pictures for you, not my regular blog photography (usually taken by my husband). I had a great time at the event, competitions are always super fun and I was glad to be invited as one of the adjudicators.

Have you ever been at a dance competition?

No? Yes? Tell me about it!
