There is no question — the students of the Brookfield Fred Astaire Dance Studio can dance.
Taking to the floor at the Fred Astaire World Championships in San Juan, Puerto Rico from July 18 through 21, students Ingrid Totten and Amanda Levine along with their professional dance partners and instructors Elmar Schmidt (Co-owner of Fred Astaire Dance Studio Brookfield) and Marcel Helms stepped, spun and chassed their way to the top of the leader board.
Competing with Elmar, Ingrid took first place in the Standard, Smooth and Open Smooth Championship Divisions. And she wasn’t done there! Ingrid also cha-cha’ed her way into second place in the Rhythm Division Championship with partner Marcel Helms.
Also showing her studio proud was Amanda Levine, who placed second in her Open Smooth Championship Division with partner Elmar.
Both Ingrid and Amanda have been dancing for over two years at and love being a part of their dance family.
