To all our dear dancing friends,
May we take this opportunity to say a huge Thank you to all and everyone who helped, supported, danced, orchestrated, competed, judged, spectated, MCed and demonstrated at The London Ball 2017.
We are truly overwhelmed and humbled by the kindness and generous amount of support, love and encouragement shown and given to us over the two day event.
Special thanks must go to our Pro`Am showcase ladies for their outstanding performances, Aliena, Candy, Carmen, Pak Ling, Olga, Anna, Karen, Judy and Monica. The LB would not reach the success it has achieved without them.
Massive appreciation must go to our professional showcases, Andrea and Sara, Marat and Alina and of course Slavik and Karina.
All gave brilliant performances on Friday night and impressed a highly knowledgeable audience with each couple receiving standing ovations.
For Slavik and Karina there are just no words to express their most musical and beautiful dancing, all we can say sincerely…. that it was truly amazing.
Ashley and the Empress orchestra are quite simply the best and if you like their music at the Empress Ballroom then you should hear their sound at the InterContinental hotel, its just exquisite. They are an integral part of The LB. Their music offers the highest inspiration for all dancers.
The Pro`Am events have grown substantially and created a wonderful competitive energy, side by side with the top professional and amateur competitions, much enjoyed by all dancers and audience alike.
Another year is over but The London Ball will be back next year on 12th and 13th of October 2018 and we look forward to welcoming you all,
Till then best wishes and “Keep dancing”,
Andrew & Irina
