Why Heather chose to accept the Big Sky DanceSport Challenge...

Heather said "Who doesn't like to dance"... (I guess she was just waiting to be asked?)      

Introducing Big Sky DanceSport Challenge's

One Woman...

the one and only...

Heather Boynton

Heather was born and raised in Maine and joined our Big Sky Country six years ago!  She loves the outdoors, animals, and all that Montana has to offer!  When we met Heather at the Fresco Cafe her passion for life was beautifully apparent and we knew right away she'd be a joy to work with.  Enjoy discovering more about her as we do through her dance journey.

One Woman...

Week One...

Heather & Ryan picked their dance...

THE CHA CHA!!!

The first lesson jitters are now all clear and the dance is on!  Cha Cha is a great fit for Heather's bubbly and fun personality!  She definitely had her "oh my, what have I gotten myself into" moments!  But her determination prevailed!  We can't wait to see her develop into "the cha cha diva" on the dance floor!  ~Ryan

Week Two...

THE CHA CHA!!!

The Second lesson is in the books.  Heather has come forward and proven her ability to shine.  Of course the slips were there, the "I forgot", the "I am not sure" , but she retained 90% of her basics.  Totally impressed.  Heather has this I am in it to win it attitude and she is pretty awesome.  Next week the performance choreography begins!!!!  ~Ryan

Week Three...

THE CHA CHA!!!

So, Week Three....... Heather had a big realization this week.  Learning the partnership of dance.  Having me to lead her around the floor doesn't work.  She has to learn her part, lol.  Cha Cha is hard! So, this became the first realization that this is for real, it isn't easy, and both partners must do their part. Finally, we will be performing in front of a real, live, crowd. No pressure!

Week Six...

THE CHA CHA!!!

A little polishing this week before we add the ending to the choreography!  Reaching the half way point the pressure took over for a few moments... But, Heather rallied and dove in head first to the challenges laid out before her.  Next week will be adding the ending and then it's all about adding the sauce & spice!

Week Seven...

THE CHA CHA!!!

So, there's this thing called life that likes to disrupt well laid plans...   We rolled with it this week and had some good solid practice anyways... and a little fun!  LOL!  Look at that dip!  However, next week it's time!  Time for the TECHNIQUE!!!  Get ready!

Week Eight...

THE CHA CHA!!!

TECHNIQUE!!!  This week was all about getting the proper body movements, foot placements, hip motion, grounding, core engagement, posture, forward poise, etc...

As you can see Heather really put in the work!  Look at those marks on her feet!  I don't think there was a muscle group missed!  Not to mention a few muscles engaged that she didn't even know she had!  Good job Heather!
