Seated in front Lori Woods-Gay with Bruno (the dog) who attended the entire event and was very well behaved.


The Symposium was a five day event, six hours per day, held in conjunction with the “Independence Day Ball Dance Camp” over the July 4th holiday at the Hilton Washington DC/ Rockville MD.  


During the course, a different dance was taught each day, covering most of the figures in the Bronze and Silver Syllabus and pointing out technical details of each step pattern including tips on what to study and how to present for an ISTD professional exam.
