They sincerely offer all competitors, amateur and professional alike, a highly organized, amazing dance competition experience. Mark and Dawna will ensure that The Eastern will provide an elegant atmosphere that inspires as well as offers generous prizes to the dance talent in a setting that conveniently provides for all competitors’ needs.
