THE SUPER JAZZ PRODUCTION SPARKLING DIAMONDS, FROM DEBORAH'S STAGE DOOR IN ROCHESTER HILLS, MICHIGAN, SHOWED NO ROUGH EDGES AT THE SHOWSTOPPER NATIONALS IN MYRTLE BEACH, THIS YEAR.

At 8 am on July 5, 2002, DS met up with over half of the 25 girls in Deborah's Stage Door's Super Jazz production, Sparkling Diamonds, in the lobby of the hotel they were staying at in Myrtle Beach, SC. Most of the other dancers in the piece were already at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center warming up for the solo routines they were performing that morning. Talk about being busy: While Sparkling Diamonds wasn't scheduled until 1 pm, the majority of performers we met that morning had at least one other group number to perform beforehand. (Deborah's Stage Door had nine group numbers on the roster that afternoon alone.) The dancers needed time to primp, warm up and support each other. Take a look!
