Another year of Stagecoach Line Dancing Competition is in the books, and this year’s competition was another welcome step towards normalcy. Over 25 competitors danced their way into the Stagecoach Festival competition, and at the end a few were offered an opportunity to join the Stagecoach HonkTonk Dance Team. Dancers from across Southern California converged on Fantasy Springs Resort Casino for the two hour competition with dreams of being one of the fortunate four winners.
As in years past, the event DJ was Big John Miller, who provided competitors and guests, current and classic line dance songs, to keep everyone dancing. Big John was also the MC of the event and called out the upcoming songs & dances for the competition.
In a surprising twist to the event, all 8 of the finalists were female, which caused one of the judges to jokingly add, that “the guys need to step their game up, for next year.”
When the final four winners were chosen, tears were shed, hugs were given and dreams were realized. It was an emotional conclusion to an action packed day.
