Mad Hot Ballroom 

Fifth-graders Master Ballroom Dancing

Gloucester Mad Hot Ball was held at Gloucester High School

Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 2PM

 Inspired by the film "Mad Hot Ballroom", Tina and Ron have been teaching Ballroom Dancing to local fifth graders for the past 10 years. This school year they are teaching all 5th graders in Essex, Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, and Stoneridge Children's Montessori in Beverly Farms.

In Gloucester, the year culminates with a "Mad Hot Ball". After ten weeks of twice-per-week lessons, the students are able to perform tango (their favorite), cha-cha, Polka mixer, swing, and meringue.

The students dress for the occasion and observe proper ballroom etiquette, to the delight of a full house of parents, friends and siblings. Miss Tina and the teachers are pleased at the enthusiasm of the students.
The students compete with numbers on their backs before a panel of judges who watch for style footwork and smiles. Miss Tina awards ribbons to the very enthusiastic competitors.

After an instant waltz lesson, the students and partners from the audience take to the floor to the delight of the audience.
