And The Winners Are….

After the rush from our Strictly 5678 Festival, we were not nearly close to the finish yet. Preparations were still required for the big Strictly 5678 Gala Event.

Out of all the sections that were entered in the event, only 3 were able to go through. Our results from the Festival was published on 29 May to allow all the dancers to do their final preparations.

The day finally arrived, all the dancers with their friends and family arrived at Reddford House in Blue Hills Kyalami. Our event has usually been judged by our esteemed judging panel of Latin & Ballroom adjudicators, however as our event has expanded over the years it was only fitting to have a judge per dance style; Lyrical, Urban and Latin & Ballroom. Our judges for the evening was Alice Kok, Craig Bullock and Dave Campbell.
