MM2001 Event Review

Have you Ever Vacationed at a "Dance Resort"?
Try Mountain Magic!!

by Brooke Wilhelm

If you weren't up in Tahoe for Michelle Kinkaid's third annual Mountain Magic Swing Dance event last November, you missed a fabulous time! Once again, all the fun took place at the Horizon Resort and Casino in beautiful South Lake Tahoe.

The weekend pass included ten hours of free all-star Workshops (WCS, Hustle, Salsa), nine dance contests, many hours of open dancing in two ballrooms until the wee-hours, a complimentary Welcome Party, and a well-stocked Hospitality Suite on Saturday & Sunday mornings. And there were many other things besides dancing to do over the weekend. The event schedule allowed the dancers time to explore the remarkable Tahoe area with outdoor activities, like golf, and to try their luck in the casinos.

The Horizon is THE perfect dance resort! It sits next to the shore of the lake and offers an 8-plex movie theatre, shops, several restaurants, fitness center & spa, outdoor hot tubs, and the Aspen Lounge. Some conventioneers took advantage of the neighboring casinos and shows in the heart of South Lake Tahoe while others shifted gears and took a relaxing break by sightseeing or taking a short walk to enjoy the serenity of the largest alpine lake in the country. Another plus was the availability of a wide variety of food services at all hours right in the hotel's several restaurants, as well as 24-hour room service.

The impressive Friday afternoon workshops set the tone for the entire weekend with Sharlot & Wayne Bott on Swing and Debra Hampton on Hustle. Other luminaries teaching through the weekend included Robert Cordoba, Debbie Ramsey-Boz, Deborah Szekely, and Maria Torres. While Debbie MC'd, Raul Ante, Andy Bouman, Dani Canziani, Ed Cirio (head judge), Phil LaMothe, Dottie Lovato, Dennis McGuire, Sonny Watson, and yours truly joined the rest of the celebrities as the weekend's judging panel.

The Friday night Welcome Cocktail Party, which has become a tradition at Mountain Magic, started the action for most of the dancers. It was held in the picturesque Hospitality Suite with its spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountain scenery. The room was packed with excited dancers enjoying the hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, wine, and other beverages.

Michelle opened the event Friday night with an inspiring tribute to the victims of the September 11th tragedy. It was a touching moment as the dancers heartily sang along with Ray Charles' soulful and emotional rendition of "America the Beautiful". There weren't many dry eyes in the house.

But MC Debbie Ramsey-Boz masterfully transformed the tone of the room to a festive atmosphere and kicked-off the weekend competitions with the WCS and the Hustle Novice Jack & Jills. Soon the open dancing began with DJs Linda Infante playing music in the main ballroom and Raul Ante in the second ballroom, with Carl Woodard's fine assistance. After the awards, DJ Beth Bellamy kept many hard core dancers going through the middle of the night. With this cast, it's no surprise that the music all weekend was great.

On Saturday, dancers attended more first class workshops with plenty of open dancing time to work on what they just learned, while others 'hit the tables' in the casino. It was a busy competition day with the WCS and the Hustle Intermediate/Advanced Jack & Jills, the Classic Swing competition, concluding with the Champions' WCS Jack & Jill.

In that competition, when Rob "I" drew Kyle Redd as the first name, it was immediately apparent that the drawing cards should have been issued to the followers, not the leaders. While the staff was responding to quickly fix the problem, the audience reacted even faster, shouting and urging them to dance together anyway. They were good sports and, being the hams that they can be, showed some very impressive and "creative" dancing - perfectly in synch - bringing the house down! That was worth the video in itself!

Sunday brought more workshops and the Intermediate/Advanced and Champions' Strictly Swing and the Masters' competitions. The crowd was clearly enthralled when Masters' competitors Richard Ware & Roxanne Taylor and John "Heavy" & Barbara "Snowflake" Grammer performed their routines with precision and sizzle. The energy projected by both couples brought a magical synergy between the audience and the dancers. What a show!

While the event officially ended at around 6:00pm on Sunday, the fun didn't end for some of the dancers. That night they were at the Aspen Lounge in the casino, which happens to have a dance floor. A band was playing Rock & Roll oldies that worked just fine for the "gambling, dancing die-hards". They even let the dancers play their own CDs during their breaks.

Soon a crowd of spectators gathered around the dance floor to view the West Coast Swing and Hustle dancing that they had never seen before. The dancing brought so much extra business to the bar that the management awarded all of the dancers free drink coupons to encourage them to continue entertaining their customers. This unique experience made Sunday night one of the memorable highlights of the weekend.

Michelle and her staff did a spectacular job! Detail was paid to all the dancers' comfort and entertainment. She kept the contest time to a minimum so that there was lots of open dancing and first rate workshops with some of the best in the business.

Lake Tahoe offers so many things to see and do ... it's the perfect getaway for both dancers and non-dancers. Everyone had a great time in this breathtaking mountain setting. You definitely want to add Mountain Magic to your calendar for next year. It's one you shouldn't miss!

Mountain Magic 1999
Article by Linda Infante:

Mountain Magic 1999 extremely fun event info:
On Mon, 08 Nov 1999, (in rec.arts.dance newsgroup)


If you weren't up in Tahoe for Michelle Kinkaids first event you missed a fabulous time! The hotel was awesome and there was lots of open dancing! On occasion someone would escape and go and gamble. Raul Ante was the big winner of the weekend I think!

This hotel sits along the shore of Lake Tahoe and you could dance in the ballroom and watch the cystal clear water lap upon the immaculately groomed beaches of the Hyatt. A short walk to the main hotel (they had shuttles for those that danced too much or the late nighters) brought you all the lights and fun that a casino has to offer to those that needed that fix too! Of course there isn't a place you will go where a dancer will not take advantage of music and the band that played late night in the casino, provided a great backdrop to the many dancers that just pushed the chairs out-of-the-way and danced on the carpet. Some dancers were seen doing strange forms of dance. It must have been Dani Canziani's influence!! :-)

Michelle did a spectular job on her first event! (don't tell her I said this though, because I have her bluffed into thinking she couldn't do it without me!!) Detail was paid to all the dancers comfort and entertainment. She kept the contests to a minimum so there was lots of open dancing and first rate workshops with some of the best in the business: Robert Cordoba & Deborah Szekely, Ginger Pickerel & Michael Norris, Debbie Ramsey-Boz (watch out Robert Royston, Debbie was pretty good as your fill in!!) and Angel Figueroa. Awards were presented each night for that days competitions so NO long awards ceremony on Sunday night.

Michelle did make a heartfelt and teary eyed presentation, Sunday night, to Jack & Annie, who couldn't make it that weekend (thanks to Kelly Buckwalter for stepping in and filling those large shoes and did a great job!), due to Jacks recent surgery, with a special pillow with their picture on it. It was beautiful and the room was filled with love and special get well wishes for two very special people.

Special thanks from me to Beth Bellamy, who kept them dancin' late night and gave me a few *needed* breaks to take that short walk to the casino. I didn't want to go but David made me!! :-)

PLEASE add this event to your calendar next year. It really was a fun event and one you shouldn't miss!!
