Rhinestones and Ballgowns: Nashville Sparkles this Weekend with Music City Invitational

National Dance Clubs is having our most spectacular Nashville competition this month; Music City Invitational.  For over 20 years, local premiere dance studio, the National Dance Clubs has organized one of the most electrifying ballroom dance competitions in the mid south, Music City Invitational.  This year, the National Dance Council of America sanctioned Music City Invitational returns to the Double Tree Hotel in downtown Nashville March 23-26, for the first year organized by James and Nancy McCaskill, and promises to be one of the biggest ever with over 14 studios from across the nation, 59 amateur competitors, more than 40 professional couples, over 4500 entries and up to $25,000 in prizes, awards, and scholarships.

The excitement begins with registration for package holders on Thursday evening.  Friday, the pageantry and energy of pro/am competition begins bright and early at 8:30 with International Standard freestyles and Multi-dances followed by American Smooth in the afternoon.  Students and professionals don their dazzling ballgowns and swirl the dance floor with color and sparkle.  The Friday afternoon session culminates in the fabulous show of student solos and spectaculars. This is a great opportunity to show off the work that they have done developing their showcase numbers from this fall and show the progress they have made over the months.  Spectators cheer them on as they show case their fabulous routines.

Friday night, the fabulous up-and-coming band The Henningsen’s will be performing LIVE for our listening and dancing pleasure and a silent auction will provide some wonderful items; the  proceeds  will be donated to the United Way and the children’s gift fund benefiting two 5-year-old boys that lost their fathers last year. Students from all of the participating area studios are invited to come dance the evening away and enjoy the opportunity to get out and use their dancing skills outside of the studio, to meet fellow-dancers from all over the country, and to see the wonderful ballgowns and other dance-related wares.

Saturday dawns with the energy of International Latin and American Rhythm freestyles.  The energy will rock the hotel as the latin beat throbs and the crowds roar.  Saturday evening will dazzle with the professional competitions, one of the most anticipated part of the weekend.  And it is not yet over.  After the rousing professional competition, one of the world’s top professional Ballroom Latin American couples will be performing, the amazing Andre & Natalie Paramonov, one of the world’s top professional Ballroom Latin American couples.  If you are not competing, you don’t want to miss this spectacular event.
