    An exciting piece of DF news (and I hope she doesn't mind that I spill this): njdancegirl and her partner got second out of forty-one couples in Adult Bronze Standard!!!!!!!! Way to go, njdancegirl!!!!!!!

    Oh, and I am also really proud of an undergraduate at the college where I teach; she and her partner WON Adult Gold Standard!!!!!!!

    CCP and I got 3rd in Senior I Silver Latin. Back held up okay. Certain kind of movements still hurt. Unfortunately, one of those is doing the fan action in rumba, which comes up all the time...so I felt like I had to kind of fake it. It's not intensely painful, but twingy. Meh. I wish I'd had at least a couple more weeks to recover, but very happy I got to do MAC. Going to try to dance better at Nationals.

    Other results...anything in particular you are looking for?

    Youth Championship Stnadard
    1--Marek Klepadlo and Angelika Dechnik 1/1/1/1/1
    2--Sergey Golubtson and Alina Iougai 2/2/2/2/2
    3--Edward Golbert and Olivia Wesolowski 4/3/3/4/3
    4--Taras Savitskyy and Liya Podokshik (I think--they weren't in program for this event, but found the number elsewhere in program)
    5--Dawd Piktel and Magda Konopko
    6--Cezary Dyrda and Sandra Spernacka
    [N.B. The 6th place couple was called to the podium right after the event ended. Not sure why?]

    Hi ChaChaMama! Very nice to finally meet you...sorry it was so brief between me exiting and you hopping on the floor. Very nice latin by the way!

    The spill is OK...we had fun and did well in that respect. Had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction (partner) in first round of silver (along with some pretty bad dancing on my part) which knocked us out early, but think w/o those issues, think we could have done pretty well there as well. Next time!

    Went Friday night to watch very exciting Champ Latin. Was rooting for Tal and his new partner, who looked great, but also thought the couple who won were excellent...very close in my opinion. She is the teacher who subbed in for Olga for my DD's latin class last Saturday...knew she was good, but didn't realize she was that good!

    Congrats to CantSki for Smooth win!

    Met Mandicraft (waves) in the on-deck area...she and Daphna and the rest of the volunteers were working round the clock...thank you for an excellent weekend!

    It was their first time competing and they swept both the pre-champ and the champ. I was like a proud mamma sitting on the stage watching but have a ton of things to yell at him about later. I specifically asked to not be on the champ smooth panel. I just wanted to watch and get a sense of them and the other couples (some I also work with) and how they all fit together.

    Congrats also due to Daphna and the rest of the NY USA Dance team for a beautifully run competition. They really listened to feedback from last year (especially with regard to the size of the women's dressing room) and delivered!

    And I guess I should toot my own horn: my partner and I repeated as MAC Senior I Latin champs!
