    It seemed like the comp was the only time you could look at the marks, given how people crowded around the marks when they were available. I am glad I looked at them at the comp because they told a better story than the results themselves did:) But I'm pretty sure I heard someone say that they don't make them available online which is totally stupid.

    I just want to see how close I was to winning the U21 latin. 3-2 in the dances and it usually comes down to 1 judge difference, which sucks cause you wonder, could I have pushed just that little extra.

    You guys looked awesome and I had you winning, in my mind at least:) I just couldn't get past the winning couple's girl's legs. Is putting gold dust or oil or whatever it was all over your legs some kind of a new trend - I mean her legs were so shiny it was distracting!

    I have only ever seen online marks with regard to YCN or USADance stuff....never have I known an NDCA comp to publish marks afterwards.

    If you are referring to Amateur Smooth, there was a couple who fits your description at Emerald:

    2 Haldun Komsuogw with Emi Terasawa

    We thought they were wonderful also.

    Last year the Ohio Star Ball put the judges' marks online, and I think also Philly Festival did that. I think they were the first to post judges' marks.
    OSB Scoresheets
    This year, Philadelphia Festival put the marks online (but they are not NDCA-recognized, I think. Something about where the comp falls on the calendar). Let's hope the OSB does that, too.
    [Edit]Just checked the douglassassociates website. Seems also the Sapphire Ball put their scoresheets online.

    Millennium had judges marks up very quickly

    Cool, I was unaware that NDCA comps had started to do that.

    As far as I know the only NDCA rule is that they can't post marks before the end of the competition.

    The Philly Festival is and has been a Championship, and is recognized by the NDCA.

    Oops. Sorry. I thought it kind of fell through the cracks when the NDCA put a moratorium on recognizing new comps. It IS a great comp, though, no question about it.

    Unfortunately we are having trouble getting Access Dance to integrate with Comp Manager so that the judges marks can be posted on our site. If anyone needs to see their marks please call our Manhattan DanceSport office at (973)276-0201 and we will fax you your marks as long as we have your heat number that you danced in and of course your fax number. Next year we will be posting the judges marks even if it means finding someone else to manage our website. I would also like to say thank you to all of the dancers that made this years event such a success.

    It was a fun comp, and we really appreciate you putting your money where your mouth is with regards to competitors receiving free entry into the ballroom for their events. :)

    Yes, one of the best comps I've attended, definitely! And it would be awesome if next year you made marks available online.

    On a related note, how refreshing to see an NDCA comp organizer actually considering NOT using Access Dance as their template. It's a terrible one and kudos to you, Mr. McDonald for thinking outside such an unattractive and unmanageable box! Another great thing to add, if you truly do consider another host for your site next year, would be online registration. It would be great if you guys, as organizers, helped usher NDCA comps into the 21st century, even if it is 6-7 years too late;)

    Great shots, Natalka. I'm actually liking quite a few of those costumes. Danielle looks completely different than the last time I saw her.
