G2C Friday Night Costume Dance Party/Fundraiser 5/8
Grassroots to Champions and Maryland Figure Skating Academy are hosting a FRIDAY NIGHT DANCE COSTUME PARTY with Anna Matuszewski – Friday, May 8th at 7pm

Anna Matuszewski is the resident choreographer and lead dancer for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Her work has been featured on music videos, commercials, TV shows, and world tours. Fun fact: Anna also teaches figure skating which is her first love and the foundation for much of her movement and application to performance. See more about Anna by following her on instagram @annaboogiebotunga.

It’s a costume party! We will be using hit music from the 80’s & 90’s so show up in your favorite themed attire! Can’t decide on just one costume? No problem! Costume changes are totally acceptable – have fun with it!!

7-8pm Dance Choreography with Anna (She will be teaching several easy dance steps and choreography to music)

8-8:15pm Brief Q&A

We will have some SPECIAL GUEST SKATERS joining our Friday night dance party – follow us on instagram @coachsummer_marylandfsacademy and @weisigeraudrey as we’ll be dropping some hints throughout the week.

Here for you
A message from the US Figure Skating Association (USFS) in regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic: “Until the rink doors are open again, stay healthy and most importantly take care of yourself and your loved ones. We’re all in this together and will emerge a stronger and better ice sports community.

Official local and federal guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic below:

Per the Governor of Virginia Executive Order 55, a state wide stay at home order is in effect until 6/10, supplementing Governor of Virginia Executive Order 53 also in effect for all non-essential businesses (including ice rinks) to stay closed until 4/24. The Amended Executive Order 53 has now extended the closure until 5/8.
