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!).
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.)
Jive--1st (Really? YAY!)
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
