Not sure why it was so empty in LA, because quite few top couples in both Adult Latin and Standard divisions did not show up, or because not that many couples from East Coast could stay awake that late to come back and watch the comp.
probably some of both not to mention Lakers kings and dodger games

we had a large group of friends and family come during the day on sunday it was great we rarely have peeps at event as most of the events are out east

I was told that all they did was ask and Paradigm graciously did it. We should be glad that someone at USA dance was listening to us competitors and made the effort to make it happen, and not simply dismiss us or shut us down. At any rate, this is a good place to spend our membership dues, as it benefits everyone in the membership, as they can all look in. Next year, not only should streaming be open to close, but have a hospitality table and perhaps someone could work on,publicizing the event - we should be asking why the turnout was so light all day and night. Maybe simply making the sessions free would encourage people to be in the ballroom more often, or maybe the scheduling should be made in a way that people will stick around for more than their event.

It is really great when people can see you and cheer you on that are close to you isn't it. I'm shocked that no one made it to the Grammy Museum (it's really great), the space shuttle Endeavor, the USS Iowa, any event in the Convention Center or Staples Center,,,,there is so much going on in downtown, plus the Disney Concert Hall and the Music Center - as well as any City event e.g., bike ride through downtown or 5K, that it tends to dilute other events. Mandicraft knows this, wink, you City person you! HUGS! Maybe next time I will be at the Marriott as a volunteer as well, since the City has asked me if I would come back on contract. It would be great to meet all'ya'all.

Didn't get to watch as much of it as I wanted but loved the stream...what I did see, the quality was great! Although I'm clearing my schedule for next year so I can actually be in attendance and not watching on my computer ;)

I'll forgive you this time since I ended up spending all of my time behind my computer on the dais rather than doing awards.

My best friend, who lives in West Hollywood, all but yelled at me for not coming out for Nationals this year. I guess that means I better book my ticket for Nationals 2016 ... :D
