Here is a glimpse of the passion for dance that make Denys and Antonina a great couple. They are United States National Amateur Latin Champions and became the first American couple to win the Blackpool Amateur Rising Stars Latin Championship. Denys and Antonina are one of the most dedicated, artistic, and musical couples in the country. We are grateful to have them as part of our team at Brooklyn DanceSport Club.

Video of the Week: 2008 PBS Special with Armen Petrosyan and Nicole Pyatetskaya Showcasing their Cha-Cha at the Ohio Star Ball. Here’s a couple we haven’t seen in a while! Armen and Nicole are former students and this Cha-Cha is just a tease from their show-stopping performances that earned them two Junior Latin National Champions.
Their small size was more than compensated for by their commanding presence on the floor. At the time of this performance, they were both under 16 years of age.
Congratulations to all the Brooklyn DanceSport Couples who competed and represented BDSC and New York at the 2012 Constitution State Challenge in Stamford, Connecticut! The Constitution State Challenge is an annual competition held in the beginning of October in Stamford, Connecticut. It is a competition that has grown to be one of the benchmark competitions in the Tri-State Area and is one of the more popular local competitions. Our couples did an amazing job at this competition.

James and Sarrah started off their new season with three very good results at the 2013 New England DanceSport Championships. They placed 4th in the Junior I Gold Latin and second in both the Junior II Gold Latin and Junior I Novice Latin and displayed massive improvement. As they were runner-ups in two of the three categories they competed in, James and Sarrah will continue to work hard and continue their good start to the season.
This week’s “Video of the Week” features Patrycja Golak practicing with one of BDSC’s youngest talents and future super-star, Sam. Sam is only 6 years old and has been dancing for only a year. He’s one our stars in Patrycja’s Bronze/6-8 Years Old Class every Monday and Thursday at 5 PM. With the new season starting, now is the perfect time to have your child, little brother/sister/cousin, niece/nephew, or even a grandson/granddaughter learn Ballroom Dance at the nation’s best competitive dance studio with some of the nation’s best instructors!
