1st K-Town Get-Down = SUCCESS

Saturday August 11th we hosted our 1st K-Town Get-Down dance event, and it was a blast!!  Dance Workshops, BBQ Dinner, and LATE night dance party!

Here’s some highlights:

Jill DeMarco came in to surprise PJ for his birthday!

PJ kicked off the day with an awesome Musicality workshop to start off Saturday!  We got a glimpse of how his talented mind hears the music and how his body inserts it into his WCS!

Jason & Amy Barnes taught the 2nd workshop sharing their secrets on body articulation in WCS!  We could see immediate results!

Jason & Amy taught the 3rd workshop sharing technique secrets..  What  treat to get that in a group workshop setting!!

Jeremy (co-owner of Academy Ballroom) grilled up some delicious dinner for everyone!  Guests brought in their delicious side dishes!  This was a fun social setting!!

During dinner break we had more surprise guests show up..  Jason Miklic and Sophy Kdep from Cincinnati, OH came to join the fun!  These two are incredible dancers and teachers!

PJ and Jill DeMarco taught the 7:15 workshop showing some cool social patterns!  Who better to learn SOCIAL patterns from than these two…  If you were to google social dancer, I’d be surprised if their picture didn’t pop up!!!

A little after 8pm the social dance started up.  PJ brought in 2 acoustic musicians to play / sing live music for the dance party (Kami Lowe and Leighton Linning) in between his DJ’d sets.  This was an awesome spin to a dance party!

We had a fun improptu exhibition showcasing: PJ Turner, Jill DeMarco, Jason & Amy Barnes, Jason Miklic, and Sophy Kdep!  Following the exhibitions there were dance event pass giveaways including: Atlanta Swing Classic, Swingin’ Dance Party hosted by Jason & Sophy, Lebanon Swings featuring Deborah Szekely, Indy Swing Bash, and K-town Get-Down featuring Jennifer DeLuca and Jill DeMarco.

PJ was presented with a birthday cake and the Happy Birthday Song played by the musicians, followed by 3 songs for his birthday dance!

Music finally ended at 3am..  What an awesome day of dancing!!!!

Mark  your calendars for November 10th when we do it all over again (minus the Birthday bash.. lol)
