Since the first week of September, MITBDT’s newest recruits have been working hard to master the steps, technique, and artistry of eight competitive dances. Their hard work has paid off: for the fifth year in a row, MIT has claimed first place in the Christina Cryan Newcomer Team Match! We also had an all-MIT rookie final in American Waltz.
Special congratulations to Eddie Kay and Chun Li, who nearly swept every newcomer event, placing first in almost every dance! Also to Yaa-Lirng Tu and Jeff McCollum, who won Gold Smooth, and Rob Lakow and Ada Lipkin, who won Gold Latin events. Not to mention Tuan Phan and Angie Chen, who took first place in Open Standard!
