    Hey I am glad they did it partial and no I am not negative, I just see that they cherry picked what would be streamed. And daytime is important too.

    We do not really know what went on, but I agree about Salsa nonesense:) But again, the intentions probably were good

    In fairness, aside from that salsa event, everything in the evening sessions is a championship or gold pre-teen event. It's not as if they're bumping senior championship events for adult pre-champ ones. As much as I'd like to see the daytime sessions (although in my case, it's for some of the people from my studio who will be dancing in events there and for the events that I would be competing in if I were able to attend the comp), I don't think there's any slight intended to the senior events.

    I did suggest that they rotate events between evening and daytime from year to year. Senior events are 3x more common in Champ, but underrepresented in the evening.

    Then you can end up not having time to change from latin to standard, someone always will not be happy, unfortunately. They have better answer in the rest of the world, when all the events are so big that they require separate days, and the semi and finals are in the evenings.... back to american men not wishing to dance. All their fault:)

    Looks like JudeMorgan was right on, S2 Standard Champ Quarter final moved a little up to 10:22, then Smooth Quarter Final is at 9:54, and the semi for S2 Standard at 10:21 I am very happy with the schedule now. Hope it stays this way:)

    Hi Everyone from LA. I've been in town doing set-up for the past couple of days, but I just want to say that there are a TON of food options of all styles, price points and open/close time with in the 5 to 6 block radius. From Subway to Flemings SteakHouse...

    Farrell's is GREAT. Just like I remembered. So good that we've eaten there twice already -yesterday and again today when our LA relatives (who had never eaten there) insisted on going back again today.

    Exactly, believe me, those of us who worked for the City, we definately needed to "walk" to the eateries. Especially those near and around LA Live. We would find lots of options within a 20 minute walk. Have fun to all, safe travels to many, some of us are headed to the San Francisco Open,,,
