Amateur ballroom dancers from the Trumbull Fred Astaire Studio captured eight top awards at the recent Fred Astaire Colonial Classic competition held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Greenwich. Altogether 22 studios from New England and New York entered over 300 dancers to compete in the three-day event.
Trumbull residents Elizabeth and Olivia Cuevas retained their trophies won last year. The sisters scored victories in the International and American-style divisions with Elizabeth winning the Silver Latin event with her teacher, Marko Paunovic, and Olvia the American Silver Smooth category with teacher, Marko Urosevic. Elizabeth, too, was victorious in the American rhythm event. The young ladies competed as juveniles and juniors.
