Artistica made a big splash at Can-Am Dancesport this year! It was our third year attending and the largest team of competitors yet! We are so proud to say our students had many 1st placings, and several scholarship placements as well! Thanks to all the dancers and spectators for a wonderful experience…..till next year!

“…a deeper understanding of dance challenges standard conceptions of intelligence and achievement and show the transformative power of movement for people of all ages and backgrounds. Dance can help restore joy and stability in troubled lives and ease the tensions in schools disrupted by violence and bullying”
Thanks to our wonderful student Joan for this article that reminds us of how important dance is for so many reasons!

Not even the ice storm of the year could keep us off the dance floor!!!
The Artistica Team made a splash at the beautiful Showcase hosted by the wonderful Kateryna Stytsenko and Dimitry Ilyushenov on April 14th. There were 11 dancers (a record!) as well as our three teachers so we were one of the largest studios at the event! YAAAA Artistica!!! And a special thank you to all of our wonderful students who came out to support and cheer on the dancers!!!
We all especially liked that all the students received personal feedback from the judges for each of our dances – SOOO helpful! The wonderful Wendy Johnson came in from New York to judge the event and provide comments for students.
The evening show was especially beautiful and included our own Anastasia and Patrick who danced two very special dances along with other professional couples. And it was so much fun to have lots of general dancing during the evening!
All in all it was a terrific experience – we are all looking forward to more events in future with this amazing group of people.
We were thrilled to compete with nine of our students at this lovely event on December 16th. Everyone danced their hearts out and we all had a great time watching the Pro-Am and Professional events.
We were all excited to watch Karina Smirnoff and Justinas Duknauskas perform a fabulous show dance!
AND…. Artistica came out on top winning the TOP STUDIO AWARD! We are so proud and thrilled to be recognized with this award.
It was a thrill to see Anastasia and Patrick compete in the Professional event at the Gala on Saturday evening – and so excited that they took 3rd place – BIG Congrats to you both for such beautiful dancing!!! Thanks to all the Artistica students who came out to watch both during the day and for the gala evening events.
We celebrated the Christmas season with a very special studio party this year! Ready for it?….our group class for the evening was taught by none other than Karina Smirnoff and Justinas Duknauskas – they were so much fun and what a treat to have world champions at our own studio!
We were warmed up for dancing to the LIVE After Hours Band! What a great time and what a great turnout! Here’s wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season and new year!
We’ll see you on the dance floor in 2018!
