"I DID" it! I've won the "Horizon Award". When it was announced in the finale of the Vegas Dance Explosion, both my husband and I were frozen and did not know how to react. He was holding onto a camera but there wasn't a picture taken during that moment.
Congratulations to the event organizers Jackie and Doug Miranda for successfully completing this world class event, entertaining 1300 dancers for 5 days. Our Laidance group had a lot of fun. Thanks to all the choreographers, instructors, DJs, show dancers and show choreographers for all the hard work put in to make the event so successful.
Thanks everyone for supporting the Dancers Choice Award, especially those who have cast a vote for me. It was for sure the most memorable Vegas trip for myself, my family and friends.
