Changes in panel

Dear dancers, you surely heard about this year's earthquake in Ecuador. We are sorry, but because of the difficult situation in the country which is trying to pull back together, Damiana Levy Dotti is changing her tour through Europe and Egypt which we were also part of. We care a lot about the choice of dancers and teachers. So we decided, following a great personal experience, to invite to this year's jury Joumana from Austria. We do believe she will bring a new perspective to your dance, not only as a judge, but also with her performance during Saturday's gala show.
