Samba de Carson

by on Sep.27, 2010, under Events, General News

Bryan WatsonBack in May of this year I finished work on a brand new Samba for 9-times World Professional Latin Champion Bryan Watson and Carmen. I then opened up a competition for fans and friends of the Empress Orchsetra to ‘think of a title’ for this unique piece of music in return for a signed CD of our album ‘Always & Forever‘.

After much deliberation Bryan & Carmen have chosen a title for their samba… ‘Samba de Carson’.

This piece of music will be performed at the forthcoming ‘London Ball‘ (an event co-presented by Bryan & Carmen), and should you wish to listen (or dance) to it then tickets are still available for the event to be held on the 22 & 23 October 2010 at the InterContinental, Park Lane, London.

As nobody hit the nail on the head with Bryan and Carmen’s preferred title, the third umpire was called in (namely me) and my decision is that Julie Taylor came closest with her suggestion of ‘The Carson Samba’.

Congratulations Julie,  a CD will be with you shortly!

Many thanks to everyone that suggested a title(s) for the Samba, it was nice to see so many people joining in the fun and there were some great suggestions!

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick.

Blackpool Dance Festival DVDs

by on Sep.06, 2010, under General News

Himawari DVD 2010The latest DVDs from the Blackpool Dance Festival 2010 are now yours to own from those incredibly talented people at Studio Himawari.

World class recordings of some world class dancing to the world class music of the Empress Orchestra.

Available in ‘Standard’, ‘Latin’ and as a 3 DVD ‘Box Set’ which includes the ‘Invitational Team Match’ recorded on Saturday night during the Festival.

For all the dancers out there; this is a perfect way to see the world’s finest do what they do from the comfort of your own armchair.

Technique, poise, balance, shape, movement, lines, footwork, choreography and occasionally even a little musicality…

You can even watch them in slow motion, (though it sounds better with the music on!)

Please help support this incredibly costly venture by purchasing a copy or two from Studio Himawari.

It would be greatly appreciated also if you would support our very own costly venture by purchasing a copy of our album ‘Always & Forever’. This music is heavily featured on the Himawari DVDs and is an essential album to own if you compete or just love Ballroom Dance Music.

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick
