Ipoh-based MY DanceSport Studio held its 14th annual dinner recently at Hee Lai Ton Restaurant. Dancers, mainly students of the studio, put up a dazzling performance for the entertainment of the 500-odd diners.
Malaysia Ballroom Dance Association President, Dato’ Dr Henry Ooi and Datin Catherine Ooi were among the guests-of-honour. The master of ceremony was the founder of MY DanceSport Studio, Michael Yeap, who was the choreographer for the blockbuster movie ‘Anna and the King’.
The dancers did the rhumba, quick step, line dance, Latin aerobic, cha-cha and the samba much to the delight of the appreciative dinner crowd.
A total of 67 dancers, aged six to 60 years, stunned the audience with their moves. Not a single second was wasted, as the dancers gyrated to a steady beat in their sequined costumes. The climax was performances by Malaysian amateur Latin dance champion, Derek Yeap and his partner, Joey Chan. The couple mesmerised their audience with a samba, a rhumba and a cha-cha number.
The studio will host the 4th Ipoh International DanceSport Championship on August 8 at Kinta Riverfront Hotel, Ipoh.
