Supreme Dance Battle at the IDEA World Fitness Convention
At the just-ended IDEA World Fitness Convention, we were invited to share QiDANCE in a “Supreme Dance Battle” that was attended by several hundred enthusiastic, dedicated fitness lovers. Want to know how our team of five did?
Described as the first-ever IDEA “session showcasing the six major dance brands that are collectively shakin’ the groove thangs of more than 10 million people worldwide,” we were honored to be a part of this very energetic experience.
Not only did the ten-minute QiDANCE section have to be a performance, it also had to be a class that attendees could follow. From the minute the music and lights began, we knew the crowd was in for something amazing. When Master Trainer Alex McLean did a back-flip straight up in the air, that sealed the deal.
Leading sections of routines from Productions 1, 2 and 3, the team cued the crowd through some of our highest energy songs: Sacudete, QiDancing All the Way, Shake It Baby, Bab Bab, and Jumping. So, in a ten-minute span we did disco, Latin, jive, jazz and house workouts.
The dance battle team was Alex McLean,Kimberly Gong Taylor, Ilyse Baker,Tahneetra Crosby and Jamie Smith. We may never know how much time they spent practicing together with team leader, Petra Kolberbut their work paid off, as they flawlessly moved as one.
After all six teams/ brands had presented, they (and we) were sent outside while the attendees voted via text for their favorites. Our high placement in the voting was gratifying, but we already knew that QiDANCE was a winner, due to the appeal, accessibility and fun that is QiDANCE. Oh, that and the stellar leadership shown by our team!!!
