Four Seasons Dancers: From Motivation to Inspiration to Dedication!

Posted on

The Aspen Hill Club was the catalyst for a group of its members to eventually form a performing dance troupe dedicated to promoting an appreciation and celebration of world cultures through dance. What began as ballet classes at AHC, later evolved into a full-staged, performance dance troupe known as The Four Seasons Dancers. In its fifteenth year, the Four Seasons Dancers have impressed DC audiences with their complex choreography, colorful costumes and wide-ranging repertoire, with global influences that reach from Bollywood to Broadway, Israel to Ireland, Armenia to Uzbekistan and beyond, even to the Arctic.

The troupe’s artistic director-choreographer and AHC instructor, Elena Indrokova Jones graduated from a premier ballet school in her native Russia. She creates works in folk-inspired styles including gypsy, flamenco, polka, tarantella, mambo and more. The Four Seasons Dancers have participated in many community and corporate events and festivals including recent performances at the United Nations (NY), International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings (Washington, DC), Organization of American States (Washington, DC), The National Christmas Tree (Presidential Park, Washington, DC), Ike Leggett Legacy Forward Event (Strathmore Theatre, MD), International Festival (Bowie, MD), World Dance Showcase (PG County, MD), Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club (Bethesda, MD), a benefit concert for hurricane victims of Puerto Rico and productions with Bel Cantanti Opera.

You, too, can enjoy the many dances they rehearse at AHC by attending their annual summer performance: Four Seasons Dancers present Dances of the World, Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Montgomery College Performing Arts Center, 7995 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Tickets available for pre-sale and sold at the door. For tickets and info, visit: www.FourSeasonsDancers.com or email: 4SeasonsDancers@gmail.com.

American Hero Classic 2018 THANK YOU!

Posted on

We did it again! The American Hero Classic powerlifting meet on November 10th was a huge success. Raising $1,050 for Paralyzed Veterans of America has never been more fun. For many of our participants it was their first experience training for and competing in a powerlifting meet. We provided powerlifting clinics and did one on one training for many of the participants to prepare them. In case you haven’t heard of powerlifting the basic premise is to Squat, Bench press and Deadlift as much weight as you can with in three attempts for each lift. Form is critical, so the participants not only trained to build strength but also did lots of work on technique and form. If you didn’t get a chance to experience the excitement mark your calendars for November 9th 2019! See you next year.

Here is a summary of what went down:

  • Participants lifted over 5 tons, 10,475 pounds
  • $525 donated to Paralyzed Veterans of America based on weight lifted
  • We raised an additional $525 through the generous donation of our members
  • We had more than 75 spectators attend throughout the event​​
