People's Choice Dancesport 2014

In May we attended People's Choice Dancesport.

The event is hosted by celebrity dance champion, Forrest Vance, at the Westin Kierland Spa in Scottsdale AZ.

The hotel is famous for it's many swimming pools and luxurious accommodations.

The Kierland's Ballroom was decorated on shades of yellow, and filled with yellow  dessert roses and white Lillie's.

The Event has a unique concept of offering the only Peoples Choice Award in Danceport. The award is a medallion that is given to the Dancer by popular vote of their peers in attendance.

Last year the award was won by Charlene Proctor & Blake Kish. The event was more hotly contested last year, when their partnership was in close competition with Lauren LaPointe and Louis Bar, for Victory in the Dancer Cup Tour.




We attended the event with Sophia D'Angelo, Michael Albarelli & Judith Albarelli.


Between dance sessions we all got to enjoy a round on the Kierland's lazy river.
On the Rhythm Day, Judith Albarelli made the final in the ladies C rhythm scholarship! 

Fun in the balloom was constantly paired with fun at the swimming pool. The  hotel also offers a waterslide and wave rider surfing pool.

We had fun both at the pool and on the dance floor.

 
People's Choice offered over 3 days of dancing, including a Country Western Day.


The event is part of the Dancer's Cup Tour, we had a great time dancing and enjoying the company of our many DCT friends, including Scott Anderson and his lovely ladies from Twin Cities.



We were also joined by Ilya Reysin an Holly Squires. 
 The event was enjoyed by all and we hope to return next year.
