Once Upon a Time…

Our first Mustang Ball was on February 11, 2007, and we had 82 leads and 81 follows signed up. Our coach, Christopher Ellwood, was the competition organizer, and he is still doing a lot of organizing for this year’s competition.  Our Master of Ceremonies was Linda Drake, our Chairman of Judges was Ava Kaye and our judges were Nigel Clarke, Tom Hicks, Porfirio Landeros, Laetitia Santore, and Alex Zagrean. Our professional showcase dancers were Porfirio Landeros and Laetitia Santore.
