So You Think YOU Can Dance?
August 18, 2005
When Rosalyn Jones, Founder/CEO of ProDance, welcomed over 300 pro sports dancers, directors and choreographers representing the US, Canada, and Europe in the Arthur Ashe Auditorium in downtown Miami, Sunday July 31 everyone knew this year they were in for something special. ProDance 2005 kicked off with an information packed directors only luncheon featuring presenters Rebecca Girard from the Detroit Pistons, Donald Wells from the Washington Redskins, and Brian Gendece, entertainment consultant, and speakers representing the best in the dance apparel, and music industry.Sunday night, John Peters; 6 year ProDance veteran choreographer, took the entire camp through a special all camp routine, but the surprises didn't stop there. The guys and girls knew they were going to Miami's sizzling South Beach on Monday, but they didn't know where. After a brief introduction by Cheryl Lawson, CEO & President of The Perfect Date, the event coordinator for ProDance 2005, the music started and five dancers from Mangos Tropical Caf on South Beach took the stage and performed two exciting routines for the ProDance audience. Mango's choreographer, Kike, taught everyone a fun routine to the Reggaeton hit "Gasolina" so they all could have a song to perform to Monday night at Mango's , mind you this was only day one!Monday started off with more surprises.
At breakfast, each attendee received gift bags with goodies from ProDance sponsors Satin Stitches, Team Image, Danskin, Coty cosmetics, Alacer, and more. Brian Gendece, "The Entertainment Dr." was up next with a world class, multi-media keynote presentation. Brian spoke on topics ranging from dance industry trends, to proper audition protocol.
