    My partner and I have a room from Thursday to Monday and were looking for another couple (age 20-45 preferably) to share and split the cost all four nights. PM me if interested.

    Just wanted to remind everyone who has reserved a room at the hotel that the last day to cancel your hotel rooms without a penalty is Sunday March 3, 2013.

    Here is the current run down toward Nationals: (1) you have until March Friday March 8 (1 week away) to register for Nationals without getting a late fee tacked onto your registration. (2) You have until Thursday March 14, to register for Nationals and be sure of getting your name in the program. After March 14, you will need to write to the registrar to see if you can enter your event. Why wait and get all worried that you won't be able to dance in all of the events you qualified for :) and why spend an extra $50.00 on registration when you don't have to. (3) The deadline for canceling your hotel room without a cancelation fee is this coming Sunday, March 3. If you need to cancel, now is the time to do it. (4) The deadline to get a hotel room at the USA Dance low rate is Wednesday March 13. After that, if there are rooms available the hotel may extend our rate. However, since I've had to ask the hotel to give us more rooms 4 times already, I'm pretty sure that what we have is what we get. So, get your hotel room now. In fact, register, get your hotel room, and your flight today and then all you'll need to do is practice and you'll be able to do that with a care in the world :D.

    I am working on getting some studios in the greater LA area to let our couple practice there for reduced rates.

    Not sure what the rules are for posting studio phone numbers & emails on DF, if the powers that be will let me know that's its OK, I'll post the contact info.

    Sorry, have no idea, you'll have to hopstop it (or the LA equivalant).

    Both seem to be quite out of the way, but you need a car to get to pretty much anything in LA. Dancessense is closer to San Diego than LA proper, and The Rhythm Room is 30m-1hr northwest of the hotel, depending on traffic.
