Ballroom in Boston Instructor Vladimyr Derisier Featured in TLC’s ‘Bling It On’

Ballroom In Boston’s dancing duo, Lindsay Norton Mzouakk and Vladimyr Derisier, turn heads on the dance floor with their fabulous footwork and flashy costumes.  But their 2012 appearance on TLC’s ‘Bling It On’ showed there’s more to costume design than just the bling.

During the show, they sat down with Boston-based fashion designer, Sondra Celli, to discuss the challenges of designing ballroom costumes.  Celli then constructed a show-stopping costume that moved with Lindsay perfectly during a competitive routine.  Vladimyr commented in his on-camera interview that the “costume really did accentuate everything.  It gives you a different attitude and we walked out there with a new sense of purpose I guess you could say.”
