LoneStar Has a new Director in 2019, Here is a note from Rowdy;

I want to send a big Thank you to Sherry and Kevin Reynolds for giving me the chance to take the baby that she and I started 15 years ago, and that they have made into such an amazing event each year and expand on its future. I'm so excited to be taking this challenge on and to hopefully make what she has brought to an amazing vision into an even brighter spotlight in the dance world! I hope that each and every one of you join us again at Lonestar next year, and if you haven't been yet, Please come out. I promise it will be an awesome party. Look out for new updates, new Instructors, Judges and a Show like you haven't seen! Oh and don't you all worry, I'm not letting Sherry off the hook completely she will still be my side advisor when I'm in the need for a little advice! I'm looking forward to see you all August 8- 11th, 2019, at the Omni Southpark for the best dance party ever!
