    Eastern Experience

    Given my context, I really can't complain: in Pro-Am Silver I (A2), 1st in Waltz & Tango, 2nd in Viennese Waltz & Quickstep, and 3rd in Foxtrot. In Silver II (A2), 1st in Tango, and 2nd in Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot & Quickstep. In Silver Scholarship, 5th.

    I started practising Standard in July, but not at all rigorously (for various reasons). Prior to the last couple weeks (since we had guest coaches), I hadn't had a lesson since November. The Tuesday before Eastern, another one of my coaches asked pro and me why we weren't competing at Eastern . . . so we decided to compete at Eastern. :) We probably practised twice during the week, but I think I danced alright, and I'm happy (still have a lot of work to do, though!).

    Congrats BM - they are excellent results - besides we are all works in progress, even the world champions must feel that ;)

    Ditto...congrats BM! You danced well, you placed well...what more could you ask for? Sounds like you work on Standard the way I do...a little here, a little there.

    I love when comps put the scoresheets up! Thanks for pointing that out, MQ; I might not have thought to look.

    ***
    CCP put up a bunch more photos. He is now through Saturday daytime and starting Sat night. MQ, you are on deck! I've seen the previews, and I think you will be pleased.

    I had 272 to choose from, from warm-ups through awards. Here are a dozen favorites:

    I don't think I ever shared my placements.

    Ladies B1 Silver I Latin
    Cha-cha--3rd (I was ODing on adrenalin and rushed the music. :( I was trying to be fast and sharp but apparently just fast.)
    Samba--1st (YAY! My favorite dance.)
    Rumba--2nd
    Paso--2nd
    Jive--1st (Really? YAY!)

    B Silver Scholarship (out of 8)--4th place.

    I don't know, I think the second one is funnier!

    Congrats, you look beautiful!

    that's out of 8, yes? funny that that little emoticon pops up. You did very well for yourself!

    Nice pics, CCM. I will give those of you ladies who struggle to pay for dresses a little happy note. The lady in #429 is wearing a black fringe dress I bought on ebay for $25. It was like a shirt on me so I lopped it off on her. You can find a deal every now and again ;)

    And ftr, I think everyone's first dance should be an automatic do-over....my shoulders are pretty much in my ears the entire first dance.

    scratch that. I had to ******* to see 2009 although the date of 2008 does still appear on one of the pages.
