2019 MVDC Honor Dance

Congratulations, Matt and Brenda!
2019 MVDC Honor Couple!

On Sunday, March 3, 2019, the Miami Valley Dance Council celebrated their Annual Honor Dance. This wonderful gathering recognizes dancers or leaders who have provided outstanding service or made great contributions to the recreational dance community of the Miami Valley. Member clubs are welcome to nominate their dancer(s) each year.

This year, the following forms of dance were showcased – squares called by Homer Magnet, rounds cued by Elaine Wintrow and folk dancing by the Miami Valley Folk Dancers. Thank you Homer, Elaine and MVFD.

We are so pleased and ecstatic to announce the 2019 MVDC Honor Couple: Matt and Brenda Howard from Kitty Hawks Squares. Congratulations, to Matt and Brenda! Congratulations to all our nominees who will continue to be celebrated by their clubs!

Hey, Kristen

“Hey, Kristen!”
“What, mom?”
“Want to see something awesome?”
“Well it depends, what is it?” Kristen says.
I hand Kristen my celery phone and pull up the pics.
Kristen exclaims, “Holy Crackers! Say no more! This must be the MVDC Student Dance called by Ken Roberts and Jason Raleigh at the MSP on Sunday, Dec. 16th!”
“Mom, was this organized by Fred Organ, MVDC VP?”
“Yes, Kristen, we are blessed to be apart of the MVDC Family that Fred, Ken, and Jason are members of too!”
“Wow. It is great! Thanks for sharing this with me, mom. It brings back fond memories of my student days!”
“You are so welcome. It is awesome to see the students enjoying their time at the MSP!!” Colleen exclaims.
(That is what squaring is all about, and all the forms of dance that MVDC offers!)
