The SouthernStar Chapter of USA Dance presents

The Mid Summer Classic XVI
All Amateur DanceSport
Championship Competition!

Held on July 25, 2009
at the
Elegant Rhapsody Ballroom
12101 North 56th Street, Tampa

The SouthernStar MidSummer Classic XVI is now in the record books.  We had a wonderful day and lots of great competition.  We had a great collection of couples competing, and the quality of the dancing was exceptional.   It is clear that you all have been working very hard.

Speaking of competitors, we would like to thank each and every one of you for participating.  You are the life blood of any competition!  I would like to give a special thanks to all out of state dancers who came such a long way to be with us and to all the first time dancers who chose our competition as the paltform to new dancing adventures.

Thanks to all the enthusiastic spectators.   Dancers will dance much better before an excited, attentive crowd, and this crowd was great and rambunctious.

Thanks to the great panel of judges.  It is always a pleasure to be judged by such expertise.

Thanks to Richard and Laurie Collet for the use of the Rhapsody Ballroom.  What a great place to dance!

Thanks to all the great volunteers who made the whole day come off with out a flaw.

Thanks to Richard Collet, our MC, for moving the day along.

Thanks to Mike & Peg Johnston for the best music around. 

Thanks to Michael & Beth Nolan for a very fine job of organizing this comp.
