Update on: 

Kingston Dancing with the Stars for Easter Seals Kids on November 2, 2012   I will be choreographing, training and performing with local stars for this event.   Please support Easter Seals Kids, purchase your tickets online now http://www.easterseals.org/all_events/dancing-with-the-stars-for-easter-seals-kids-presented-by-great-west-life

I am very pleased to announce that Matt Hutcheon, CEO Chamber of Commerce came in 2nd place;  there was only a 2 vote difference between 1st & 2nd place.  Way to go Matt!!!

It was a great pleasure training Matt Hutcheon, CEO, Chamber of Commerce and Mike Reid, New/Morning Co-Host of The Drive.  Matt was always game for the many changes in routine and the suggestions on improving his dancing skills.  Mike had the best questions on technique and always wanted to improve his dance moves.  I could not have asked for better students.

Dancing with the Easter Seals Stars - Kingston November 2013

It was a wonderful experience choreographing and teaching the jive routine for Kathy Turkington's performance with my husband Myron Szewczuk.  His busy teaching and research schedule leaves little time for his ballroom dance hobby so it was up to me to get the performance under way.  The performance with fun and entertaining ----- Well done Kathy!

Despite Tom Brown's hectic work and volunteer schedule we had a fun time working on developing Tim's samba technique. Resulting in a superb performance of the choreographed routine.  It was great working with you --- Congratulations Tim!!!

Please support Easter Seals, their help of local families is very important.



To share my love and knowledge of dancing, but most importantly to provide a fun learning experience for everyone in the classes.
