Fred Astaire Dance Studios wins third place in New England Dance Extravaganza

The Fred Astaire Dance studios of Southport, 3300 Post Road, won third place at the fourth annual New England Dance Extravaganza held Friday June 19 through Sunday June 21, at the Mystic Marriott, 625 North Road, Groton.

Executive Director Monika Barska explained, “The award is given to the team that wins the overall score. The team match is a ‘Proficiency Competition’ meaning that you are scored based on your own performance as compared to the standard for that dance. You are not compared to the other dancers on the floor and receive a numeric score for each dance. Scores are added to the scores from the other competitors in your studio and an average is calculated. The studio with the highest average is declared the winner of the Team Match Extravaganza.”

The Southport Fred Astaire competed against nine other dance studios, earning points as a group rather than individual competitors.
