Ballroom on the Square Students Make a Strong Showing at One of the Region’s Biggest Competitions


(Lancaster, PA) – Ballroom on the Square, Lancaster’s premier ballroom dance studio, showed that their students have what it takes to compete at the top level with strong finishes at the Capital Dancesport Championships held in the Washington, DC metro region recently. The competition – one of the largest on the East Coast with over 6800 entries this year – featured dancers from all over the country and even a few from abroad. The studio’s professional instructor, Kenneth Wilson, took three amateur students to the Capital Dancesport Championships, and all of them placed.


Marybeth Hambleton of Lancaster competed in the American Smooth and Rhythm divisions in Intermediate Bronze; Margie Hess of Conestoga competed Full Bronze American Smooth and Intermediate Silver American Rhythm; Eleanor Isaacson of Willow Valley competed in Full Bronze American Smooth and Open Bronze American Smooth. The Smooth division dances include waltz, tango, foxtrot and Viennese waltz; Rhythm includes cha cha, rumba, swing, bolero and mambo.


Expertly partnered by Ken Wilson, all of the ladies placed in the top three among fierce competition. In addition, Ken showed off his skills with a brand new partner, amateur dancer Gina Kazimir of Bel Air, Maryland, when her professional instructor was injured. With only minutes to practice, the couple, who had never danced together, competed in the American Smooth Three Dance Championship.
