Maud Arnold to teach Tap Master Class at Nationals 2011!

Maud Arnold will be teaching tap master classes at our Nationals this summer.  Nationals will be held on Cape Cod at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center on July 6-10, 2011.

So a little about Maud you ask?

Besides the fact that she is super friendly, has a great smile, and is just an overall good person...she is an excellent dancer with quite the amount of experience!  She has been featured on the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine which you can see here, and she has worked with other well known performers like Savion Glover and Debbie Allen.  Here's something else you might want to know...she's worked on music videos for Lil Wayne, JLo, Keri Hilson and Beyonce!!

Anyways we are so excited to have her teach and we hope you are pumped too!

Live to Dance!

Last night a new show about DANCE premiered on CBS, Paula Abdul's Live to Dance. It shows dancers of all ages and all genres, and it certainly kept my attention. Actually, it got me really excited for competition season to start so I can watch dances like that in real life! Turn It Up definitely has some dancers attend that could be on the show!  It is on again tonight at 8 pm don't miss it, because trust me you will love it. What was your favorite dance of the night? I'd have to say my favorites were Kendall Glover's solo and nine year old Jalen's routine (the show opener!).
