Discussion in 'Ballroom Dance' started by elle, Oct 21, 2013.
Anyone know if the event will be broadcast anywhere, on TV or on the internet?
They streamed it last year; don't know if they plan to again.
The judging panel appears to be up now.
Excellent. I'll prepare my bribes.
For everyone who like to procrastinate, you've succeeded. There is only a week left to register for Nationals. After next Friday you'll have to pay a late fee, don't procrastinate any longer!
A good reminder to send my money in!!!
We danced at Midatlantic to qualify. Any idea know when they will post the couples who qualified from this comp on the nationals website?
Just go ahead and register and let Daphna sort out who's qualified or not.
Listen to Joe, register and let us figure it out, but the qualifying list should be finalized by late tonight.
LETS DO THIS!!!!!!!!
Wouldn't you have also been able to sit down with o2cm and the rule book and sort it out yourself? Maybe the rules have gotten more complex than when I looked at it last year, but I can't imagine they are by that much.
Top 65% qualify, if 4 or fewer couples are in a straight final, all four couples qualify.
Just wondering, will Nationals be in LA next year? Baltimore is really not a nice place to visit imo. Would rather be in LA.
I guess you prefer a half empty ballroom to a full one, too.
OT a bit, but any comments on the fact that 'qualifying' events decimate participation at the Nationals? Does anyone else hear a disconnect between the complaints that the Nationals lose money and the fact that denying many dancers the opportunity to dance at the Nationals means less income and more importantly, less FUN for the members of USA Dance?
Without qualifiers though, what is it but a big competition that seeks to have competitors from all over the country?
it still determines the champions; Blackpool does not ask that people qualify, nor do the WDC AL championships.
I was under the impression the plan was to alternate two years in Baltimore with one in LA. Speaking as someone who lives east of the Mississippi, I'm in favor of that plan. How nice the area is to visit is pretty significantly far down my list of priorities for a competition. Other's mileage (particularly those who live on the west coast) may vary.
Separate names with a comma.
