Eastern Experience

So BM, how did the Eastern go for you?
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!).
Ditto...congrats BM! You danced well, you placed well...what more could you ask for? Sounds like you work on Standard the way I do...a little here, a little there.

I love when comps put the scoresheets up! Thanks for pointing that out, MQ; I might not have thought to look.

CCP put up a bunch more photos. He is now through Saturday daytime and starting Sat night. MQ, you are on deck! I've seen the previews, and I think you will be pleased.

I had 272 to choose from, from warm-ups through awards. Here are a dozen favorites:

I don't think I ever shared my placements.

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!)

B Silver Scholarship (out of 8)--4th place.

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 ;)
