Kiana and Myla both have new ballroom partners for the upcoming dance year.
For Myla, this is her 3rd year of ballroom, and her 2nd partner. She danced with Ezra the past 2 years, but their partnership has retired.
Now, she is dancing with Ammon. Today was their first competition together, and for Ammon it was his first ballroom competition ever. They did a cha-cha, and were so cute together!
They did great!
For Kiana and Tristan, this is their first year in ballroom for both of them! Kiana has done jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, but never ballroom. As for Tristan, he is an awesome soccer player, and hip-hop dancer now attempting ballroom.
Today they competed in the Cha-Cha, Swing, and Samba.

In the Samba, they placed 6Th – We were so excited, since this was their first ballroom competition!
Both of these couples have been working so hard, so many hours all summer to get their new routines choreographed, practiced, and cleaned to be ready for today…
Sela & KJ, two of their little fans…
Sela dances around everyone while we cheer…sips some soda
As for KJ, he takes his DS and tolerates the whole thing till it’s done and he can go home…
Today was a great trial run for all of them because next weekend they will be competing at the Nevada Star Ball in Vegas, one last summer trip for our family before school starts!
