 April Follies is the Largest and Longest Running Dance Sport Classic in the US

 

April Follies returns to Just Dance Ballroom on April 27 to host the 2013 North American Same-Sex Dancesport Championships.  Now in its 11th year, the annual competition and show is the largest and longest running Same-Sex Dance competition in North America.

“We have a fast-growing community of same-sex dancers in the Bay Area,” according to Barbara Zoloth, April Follies Board Member.  “Many of our couples go on to international same-sex competitions like the Gay Games and the Out Games.”

All levels will compete during the day beginning at 10:00 am.  Dance Styles include International Standard and International Latin, American Smooth and American Rhythm.  This year, due to high demand, there will be expanded competition for Argentine Tango and Country Western dances.

An onsite community dinner will follow the daytime events.  The day-long competition culminates with a dance lesson for attendees and new dancers, followed by the A-level finals and dance performances by the top-rated couples in the evening.

The evening A-Level Finals are part of an extravaganza and show that includes performances by several of the country’s top same-sex couples and performance teams representing studios from all over North America.

Following the show and final competition, there will be an open social dance for all.

Tickets are $15 (daytime events only), $25 (evening event only), or $35 for the entire day.   A community dinner is also available for purchase.  Reduced pricing is available if purchased early.  For further information, please visit www.aprilfollies.com, or friend us on Facebook [April Follies 2013].
