In its seventh year, the Florida Fun Mini Match competition stiffened in 2019, with almost 200% growth in competitor numbers from last year. Dancers of all ages competed in waltz, tango, foxtrot, salsa and two step from the early afternoon into the evening for a chance to be 1st place in their heat and win fabulous prizes. At the end of the night, there was a special performance by celebrity judges Ekaterina Derevleva and Aleksei Alekseev, complete with flashy costumes, fancy steps, and a buzzing flare all their own. The 2019 event was the most successful mini match to date, with over 275 attendees and over 140 heats.
We look forward to another great year in 2020. Proceeds benefit the Marion Therapeutic Riding Association and help to raise awareness for their services, possible through competitor and spectator attendance, event sponsors and donors to our silent auction. The support of the dance community in North Central Florida is growing and Dance Dance Dance is excited for the future of ballroom dance in our area.
