    In preparation for Intuit's Winter Celebration at San Francisco City Hall, Intuit's staff were invited to become the dancers they've always wanted to be and experience the dynamics and fundamentals of social partner dance at workshops sponsored at two Silicon Valley campuses.

    The goal:  To captivate staff and their partners to "showcase and unleash their inner dancer" and perform for their peers with Salsa, Ballroom, '50s Swing, and Disco styles. Sizzling performances were accompanied by band leader Dick Bright's SRO. Winners in each category were determined by a panel of judges and audience applause and were awarded a voucher to donate to their favorite charity for their entertaining efforts. This unique opportunity was a rousing team-building experience. On-campus rehearsals were conducted a week prior to the celebration. Cynthia emceed the ‘Showcase’ to an enthusiastic standing ovation.
