What guests are saying

World Line Dance Newsletter
"This was the first time that I've attended this event and what a blast. Held on the U.S. thanksgiving weekend at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort (right on the beach) in Ft. Lauderdale the weather was in the 80's......suntaning, relaxing by the pool or ocean and dancing.....what a combination. This event had a fantastic Sunday after-party "Luau" that was so much fun. We even managed to get in a WCS flash-mob. A great Saturday evening show, UCWDC competition as well as Strictly Swing and Jack and Jill competitions and classes in linedance, WCS, ECS, Salsa, Nightclub, Hustle, 2-step.....absolutely something for everyone. Congratulations to Zac Detweiller (Linedance Coordinator) who DJ'd the combined Linedance and Swing room while the Saturday evening show was on and kept all the dancers rockin'. The friendly vibe between linedancers and couples was great to see. This is one event I highly recommend..."
