Congratulations to all my students that competed at the 2016 MIT Open Ballroom Competition in Cambridge, Mass.
Connor and Audrey
In the past 2 years, you have made important and ground-breaking strides in your dancing. Your willingness to keep learning is the ultimate pay-off. Thank you for working so hard throughout the competition season. Great job at MIT. PC: NUBDC
Alex and Laura
Congratulations to Alex and Laura completely sweeping Intermediate Standard, placing first in all dances (W/Q, T/F and VW), and first overall. In addition, they placed 3rd in Intermediate American W/T, reaching semis in Advanced F/VW (first time in Gold), semis in Intermediate International C/R, 4th in S/J and 3rd in Paso Doble (3rd overall in Latin). In just one year of dancing in the silver division, you’ve exceeded all of George’s expectations and have accomplished so much, practically being the best silver standard couple in all of Boston, placing out of silver Smooth and achieving high ranks in silver Latin. No big deal, right?
George is very proud of their hard work every week, while being so humble and being good role models for aspiring dancers.

Leif and Amy
Leif and Amy have made significant progress in their dancing, particularly in the Smooth. Their improvement has shown each and every week and George is tremendously proud of them. PC: NUBDC
When George first started teaching in Boston, Katie was one of George’s very first students. I saw potential on how good she can become and the hard work it would take to get there. Her determination and perseverance has allowed her to exceed her dance goals each and every year. This year is no exception. Congratulations on reaching the QF in Adv. International T/F, as well as QF in International C/R and callbacks in S/J. Great way to end the season. PC: NUBDC
