U.S. Pro/Am Ballroom Dance Championship

Memphis, TN will be held March 15-18, 2018 at the Hilton Memphis Hotel located at 939 Ridge Lake
Boulevard in Memphis, Tennessee.  Our special activity will be a visit to the Gibson Guitar Center and a
night on the town at the historic Majestic Theatre, where silent films run continuously as patrons enjoy
dining in a beaux arts environment with lots of atmosphere.  Competition begins 9AM on May 16th in
American Smooth and International Standard.  Don't forget to register for our new divisions in the
championship multi dances!

Rapid City, South Dakota May 15 - 20, 2018.  Past competitions have taken us to Jackson Hole
and Cheyenne, Wyoming and locations where we have enjoyed the great American outdoors. Our 2018
dance adventure will take us to the historic Alex Johnson Hotel in the heart of Rapid City, South Dakota.  
This dance competition is longer in duration so we can visit one of America's greatest monuments,
Mount Rushmore!  We will also be visiting the Crazy Horse Memorial, attend a Native American Museum,
Cowboy dinner show, shop, and much more.  Competition will be held Wednesday and Thursday,
leaving Friday and Saturday for our tour activities.  It should be a lot of fun, a great place to dance, and
a wonderful experience for everyone!

Orlando, Florida July 5 - 8, 2018 at the Renaissance Orlando Renaissance Hotel located at 5445
Forbes Place in Orlando, Florida.  The competition will includes two full days of competition beginning
July 6th at 9AM.  This is a great opportunity for you to participate in the Theme Category, a novel solo
to be danced to a routine graded on entertainment value, special choreography, unique music selection,
costuming, and it must be danced to a "Disney Theme."    Props are allowed. Of course, the theme
category is offered at every U.S. Pro/Am Ballroom Dance Championship.

Cison di Valmarino, Italy August 12 - 19, 2018 Who doesn't like castles?  The Castel
Brando is a private castle I have leased EXCLUSIVELY for the U.S. Pro/Am Ballroom Dance
Championships.  There are 50 rooms within the castle.  To date, the two Royal Suites, the Alcove of the
Count Suite, four of the Junior suites, and 3 of the classic rooms have already been booked.  This
spectacular castle is only an hour from Venice and a great central location for lots of tour activities.  We
will be dancing Tuesday and Wednesday August 14 & 15, with the rest of the days spent touring.   Best
of all, the castle has ballrooms with beautiful wood floors for the competition!  If you would like to view
the castle website, please look at www.hotelcastelbrando.com.  Our 2017 overseas trip to Italy was very
successful with 50 people in attendance.  I have no doubt this competition dance/vacation will sell out.  
If you are interested, you should secure reservations as soon as possible.
