I was tentatively planning to go back and visit my old home town for a ballroom comp this spring. But alas. Still, a month before that comp should be happening, there's no sign of it. The conclusion my friends and I have drawn is that the poor US economy killed that comp, at least for this year. I guess I'll go visit later this year for another comp. I sincerely hope the economy's rebounded by then. Just curious. What economy-related effects, if any, have you seen on the ballroom "business" and culture, where you live? Have you seen the shakedown I'm seeing? Have you seen anything good come out of the economic crunch? Comments?
