Wow! Not only did East Coast Classic Professional Tribal Fusion winner Yoni Biye place in the competition his friday night performance made him an artist to watch in Europe!  As a returning judge I absolutely adored being a part of Asmahan's event. There were so many beloved faces; from Amira who came from Germany to compete at the East Coast Classic to rocking out with Karolina Lux, a beloved ECC almnus! It was a whirlwind but what a ride!!  We are currently in second tier pricing, we have five tiers with a set number of packages available in each one. Please use that deposit option to lock in your early tier price!...
