    Hi Everyone - The UPenn Classic is going to be on February 9, 2013 at the Philadelphia Convention Center (phenomenal venue!) in Philadelphia, PA.
    Everyone is welcome to go, compete, and spectate: students and adults alike. Registration is open at: http://www.dolphin.upenn.edu/ballroom/upenn-classic/

    I'm already registered - this year's event looks pretty phenomenal.

    I'll be there! Hopefully with a partner for smooth, rhythm, and Latin this time. If not, there's always TBA.

    Sorry, Dan, time and budget just doesn't allow for New York comps right now. Would love to hang out with both you and Jana, though.

    Dunno. It's what the rules say. *shrug*

    Oh, I know -- doesn't make you any less missed though!

    Probably because no one has asked the competition committee about it and they are just old rules pasted from years past. I will inquire.

    Daphna, I've submitted a request to the Penn comp planning committee. They're checking with their officials to see what can be done about this antiquated rule. I'll keep you updated.
