Congratulations to all the UC Star Award nominees this past weekend in Baltimore. Southern California was well represented. Special congratulations to our winners:
Jane Liang for Stepologist, and Sean and Ejaya for Western Song of the Year, and Western Region Choreographers of the Year. Jackie B, Eric and Tish were nominated for the National Sleeper Award for their dance Mindful, and Candace and Karen joined Jackie B, Jackie and I in the nominations for Western Region Dance of the Year and Choreographers as well. !!!!

We had a great time at the UC Star Awards. The weather was amazing, the people were wonderful, we really enjoyed the new dances, and Verlosity did their thing during their showcase on Saturday night.

Below is a picture of when they announced Sean and Ejaya as this year’s recipients for Western Region Choreographers of the Year.

Here are some other pictures from the UC Stars Award Event.
