Studio Receives Awards at Ohio Regional Competition “Freddy Ball”!

Right Star

WESTERVILLE, OH (April 9, 2015) – The Westerville studio received several awards at this year’s Ohio Regional Competition held March 27 and 28 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus. Professional Instructors as well as students competed and were recognized at this year’s event:

Instructors Renae Smith and Sam Walker won championships while also placing in the top three in several categories; Instructor Keith Jastram won the novice category and placed in multiple other categories; Instructor Sam Walker received the Freddy award as one of the top instructors in the state for 2014; Amy Jordan, owner of the Westerville studio, won the Freddy for one of the top three studio owners in the state for 2014; Students Cynthia Madich, Tim and Deb Pindell, Kelly Collins, Rebecca Cripe and Marlene Goodenow all competed and were also winners this year.

“Our instructors are continuously working to hone their skill and they reflect the high quality of our studio, I’m very proud,” said Fred Astaire Westerville owner Amy Jordan. “We have a fabulous new facility for students to dance at and top notch instructors to teach them.”

Jordan added, “To see our students learn, develop their dance skills and most importantly have fun really makes my job fulfilling. Our studio is the best place in Westerville for adults to learn dance.”

The annual two-day regional competition sponsored by Fred Astaire’s regional office draws many professional dance instructors as well as several students from across all the Ohio Fred Astaire studios to compete. This year’s competition also attracted a large number of spectators in the audience who came to support and cheer on the professionals as well as their friends and family. It was an exciting weekend of fierce competition and dance sportsmanship.

Photographs of the participants can be seen in our Competition Gallery.

Student Stars of the Month


Right Star

Deb and Tim Pindell began their dance journey with us nearly a year ago when they accepted two free dance lessons at a local event. They had so much fun learning to dance and working with our Instructors that they decided to make a commitment as a couple to continue taking lessons. Deb and Tim take lessons regularly as well as attend the group classes and parties available to students to continue learning and perfecting their dance steps. They have also competed in several regional competitions winning awards for their performances and are planning to attend the national championship next year in Las Vegas.

“We love dancing because the instructors make it fun and easy to learn,” said Deb and Tim Pindell. “Not only do we feel more confident on the dance floor but we feel more connected as a couple,” added Deb.

When Deb and Tim are not on the dance floor, they both work for Otterbein University where Deb is an Assistant Manager of Mail and Print Operations and Tim is a Network Engineer. They also share their time and talent in support of finding a cure to end cancer through their involvement with the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Westerville. The Pindell’s became involved with the organization shortly after Tim survived his battle with cancer a few years ago. They continue to stay active through their involvement and commitment to both dance and their fight to end cancer.
