The Adelaide Easter Festival and Spectacular has just wound up for 2010. And what a Spectacular it was, it was the strongest field Adelaide has seen in many years. Both the Saturday and Sunday were well supported by the general public as well as regular dance goers. Competitors from NSW & Victoria as well as Locals made up a strong field with over 250 competitors. All age groups were well represented. The atmosphere at the venue was electric, with great music, great dancing what more could you want.
The Adults, Professionals and Masters Sections were top class, thrilling the audience with their grace and skill on the dance floor. Social Dancers were not forgotten with a Social Dance on the Saturday Evening Hosted by Mark Wilson, Two floor shows by Paul Biddle & Sheree Holly andSteven Grinbergs & Rachelle Plaass giving everyone a taste of what would be presented to us at the Easter Sunday Event.

WOW! What a weekend of dance it was!
The Easter Spectacular week end of dance would have to go down as THE best DanceSport event(s) staged in Adelaide for many years. A marathon and smorgasbord of 3 dance events, catering for ALL dancers… something for every one, including the glamorous Dancewear Australia stall of products & services, all under the one roof – Adelaide’s favourite dance venue – Wonderland Ballroom.
The week end started with the Easter DanceSport Festival on Saturday, traditionally the ‘warm up’ event for competitors for the following day. Spectator numbers were up, competitor numbers were up- both locally and interstate. More couples took advantage of this festival to test their skills against fellow competitors, in readiness for the big Championship to follow.
