    Is this comp different from Manhattan Dancesport Championships?

    nah... title fixed.

    I just got done filling out entry forms for my next 5 competitions all in the next 7 weeks, and it seems they are all "Dance Classics". Just a small mental lapse from being incredibly overloaded at the moment.

    Share a room at Manhattan?

    The cost on this room is $220 (inc tax) per night. Ouch! I'd love to find someone to share the room with...preferably female. I'm there Thurs-Sun. Anyone interested?

    Pro wants this one to be our debut... not sure yet though since i'd have to dance on the 4th! holidays are normally a family day... but i cant think of a better way to celebrate freedom and liberty. :)

    I'm not dancing, but I may drop in on Friday-I'm cruising to Halifax and Boston and we arrive back in NYC on Friday. Might stop by and say hello.

    I plan to be there spectating on Friday and Saturday night and probably Sunday as well. Some of my roommates were wondering how much standing room only tickets will be for Friday and Saturday, anyone know?

    Ugh, so upset that this conflicts with IDB ... I wish I could bilocate!

    I believe it usually does coincide with IDB.

    First time competing with new pro! :) We've been working really hard putting together our routines.

    If I am around that day I would love to meet up with you DOI!

    Of course, the same goes for any DFers...

    Congratulations TD.

    For those who have gone to this comp before, what was your impression? I am trying to decide if I should go... I have never been to this one.

    Yeah, same as last year ... Maybe if we improve enough this year, my partner and I can compete in 2013!

    As others have said, the competition turn out is great. The pros are not to be missed.

    Normally it doesn't (only 1/2 day overlap) but this year it does :(
