CONGRATULATIONS to StaverDancesport MEDAL STUDENTS!
National Examiner, Diane Jamolow, flew into Eugene early for a whirlwind day of Student Medal Testing.

SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to our MEDAL CANDIDATES!
StaverDanceSport Students received Honors and High Honors! Wow! What an Accomplishment!

EXTREME Success at the National Testing held on March 13th, 2016!

The new Magic Number is Twelve!
Twelve candidates passed the national exam with flying colors on Sunday, March 13th when Diane Jarmolow flew early morning into Eugene for an intense day of testing candidates from the Bronze Medal Waltz, Bronze Medal Tango and Gold Medal Programs offered at StaverDanceSport!

The entire day was dedicated time for exams in dancing and dance theory. Justin Bradley, Lindsay Bradley, Joan Calhoun, Kevin Trout, Jordan Lyda, Gracie Jackson, Holly Claypool, Tyler Wichman, all stepped onto the dance floor to warm up for their first entry in a "National Medal Exam". Jim & Barbara Walker along with Regina McGlothlin and Anthony Realmuto are experienced in this process so nothing new for them, but still demanding as a performance in front of a National Examiner. A challenging goal, to say the least, because the dancers are judged on their ability to demonstrate all of the elements that characterize the technique that is so carefully executed with precision and grace. The results were fantastic! They all scored extremely well! WOW! All of us were thrilled, especially their Coaches!

As the couples traveled across the floor in the testing process the spectators of family and friends cheered for them, showing great audience approval and support for their exquisite execution of the technique that the judge's critical eyes were evaluating. Needless to say WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR STUDENTS! CONGRATULATIONS to ALL!

A formal "Medal Ball" will be hosted in honor of these students on
Saturday, May 14th, 2016, to celebrate the National Standard of Excellence they have accomplished.
