Stanislav Ivanov is the most accomplished All-Star west coast dancer on the planet. As a result, he recently moved to the Champion category, in which he will compete in all future competitions. Stanislav was here on February 18 and everybody loved him.

Check out his silky dancing at https://youtu.be/3Ax6RxHFLM8. It's a Jack & Jill competition which he won dancing with Janelle Guido in 2022. Stanislav runs two Arthur Murray studios in the Boston area and is, as are not all high level competitive dancers, a wonderful teacher. And best of all, he’s down to earth and approachable! Funny too.

On April1, three weeks from this coming Saturday, Saya Suzaki and Roberto Corporan, two All Star / Champion level dancers will be at DanceGourmet in East Hartford CT (directions at http://www.dancegourmet.com/directions.html).

Roberto and Saya have been dancing at the All Star/Champion level for several years. It’s rare to get two Champions teaching together for a full day. Saya began dancing at age 4 – in many dance forms. Hip hop, modern jazz, musical theatre, and ballroom. She discovered west coast swing 8 years ago. Born in Tokyo, moved to Munich at age 11, and to the USA at age 19. Her skills are amazing, her knowledge of dance off the charts.

Roberto began dancing at age 8 and has been dancing (including hip hop, line dancing, and WCS) ever since. He is highly regarded for his smoothness and musicality.

Full event details (including workshops and dinner menu) are at http://www.dancegourmet.com/23_APR_SAYAROB.html.

Below is a picture of Saya in a competition (dancing with Stanislav Ivanov) in 2019. See the whole video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad_LmnEBYuw. It's pretty cool.
