Thank CLDAA members for the participation in the 2015 Line Dance Competition held on 6/28, Sunday at CCC in Milpitas. We appreciate your time and efforts in your preparation for this event. I understand it took about three months. Thank Madam Fuh, Annie Yi, Carol Ma, Mei Wuu and Jason Chiu for their hard work as our competition judges. Thank our CLDAA coaches, assistant coaches and staff for their passion and dedication, without their strong teamwork this event would not have been possible. I also would like to thank CCC director Wu, Tina and April for their support. I would like to thank all of our event photographers, Luther, Mike, Ben, Nina, Dr. Ray, for their outstanding work. Here goes a special thank to our Overseas Commissioners, Wei Wang, Song Chen and Amy Jong for coming to show their support. In conclusion, I would like to thank STUF (Shi Tai United Fund) for their grant contribution. More Pictures.
The California Line Dance Association of America (CLDAA) was founded in 2004 by Kico Lin. While only officially established and recognized by the Federal and State Entities in April 2004, CLDAA founding members have been dancing to promote a healthy lifestyle for many years. In fact, Kico Lin and other founding members were involved in attaining a world record in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2003 for the greatest number of line dancers in one venue. In Taipei, Taiwan on October 18 2003, 6,875 individuals gathered to perform a single line dance to break the world record. CLDAA’s goal is to break another world record here in North America.
To date, CLDAA has established line dancing classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, on weeknight and weekends, for the ease and convenience of its embers. CLDAA believes that line dancing is a fun and easy way to exercise, as there is no need for a partner and is appropriate for all ages. CLDAA board members, whom are all dance teachers and avid students, serve the community with passion through action. Our slogan:
“Dance for Health, Dance for Happiness and Dance for a Colorful Life.
CLDAA will observe the following holidays:
New Year’s Day Friday, January 1
