Charlottesville Represents at the US Open!!
CSDS is so proud of our three local dancers who head to Burbank, CA over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, to compete their routines at the US Open Swing Dance Championships, the Olympics of West Coast Swing! Junior Jacen Northcutt, with partner Taylor Garrish of MD, will compete in the Young Adult division; Allison Bennett, with pro partner Ben McHenry of CA, will compete in the ProAm division; and local pro Alyssa Gillespie, with pro partner Rob Glover of MA, will compete in the Showcase division!
