Manhattan Dancesport Championships - 2008

#43
I'm dancing Latin on Thursday and Thursday night and was waiting to see the schedule before deciding whether to take a room or not....looks like I won't be taking the room now...

jersey girl... which latin events are you dancing? :)
Dancing pro/am latin bronze and silver and a bronze championship on Thursday night...think I am all Age A. Ronni's doing the same, but I think in Age C. We'll be there to cheer on your Latin debut..what events will you be doing?

No Standard for me this time since it is on Saturday - spending a leisurely post-comp 4th of July weekend in the Hamptons :D. Though am a bit bummed to be missing all the pro events.

Sam...if I'm not mistaken, you are going to have to change your plans for Thursday night! Thursday day is latin, but Thursday night shows this in the schedule:

~SESSION 3, THURSDAY (EVENING) July 03~
PRO/AM SMOOTH 4-DANCE CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS A, B, & C
PRO/AM SMOOTH 4-DANCE SCHOLARSHIPS A & B
PRO/AM SMOOTH 4-DANCE GLOBAL C SCHOLARSHIP
PRO/AM LATIN 4-DANCE CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS A, B, & C
PRO/AM LATIN 4-DANCE JUNIOR & YOUTH CHAMPIONSHIPS
PRO/AM LATIN 5-DANCE SCHOLARSHIPS A & B
PRO/AM LATIN 5-DANCE GLOBAL C SCHOLARSHIP

I'm doing the 4-dance championship which is also in the evening - a bit of a pain in terms of scheduling with latin events in two different sessions but at least all on the same day.

Isn't the scholarship Open...braver than I am!

Oh, for pete's sake...I'm supposed to chill with laura that nite...had no idea I'd be spanning two sessions. Dear lord, if only single dances are during the day, they must have a zillion heats... And no paso??? But I love paso!!!

Wasn't there a post from Gary about a second block of rooms? Are they gone as well?
Ok.....here's the update. The hotel was able to add 20 rooms per night but they sold out within a couple of hours so we have secured additional rooms at the Comfort Inn which is 1/2 mile from the Marriott. The regular room rate is $170 per night plus tax but we have secured a rate for Manhattan DanceSport attendees at $139 per night plus tax. The Comfort Inn is located at 279 Butler Street and the phone number for reservations is (347)436-1948
See you in New York!!

Well darlin', maybe no shopping in that case, but perhaps we could partake of some martini drinking? I'm not competing until Saturday :)

Gary: that's excellent about the rooms, sounds like your comp is going to be really big! I'm really looking forward to this!

You will be hardpressed to find a silver scholarship that has all 5 dances; some are 3, most are 4.

Thanks Gary! That's excellent - I'm close enough to Brooklyn, but far enough also depending on how early comp starts on Thursday AM...and how early I dance.
