There can be a myriad of factors why your marks may be what they are, and it might not be your dancing. I've taken my marks from my last few outings with a grain of salt - they are what they are, and I can't change them. But I'm doing it for me, not the marks, and I know I've improved a lot over the past year. Even if I get marks again that are abysmal, I'm not going to be surprised or get discouraged about it.

It is not impossible to score well with a pro that is not well known, I have scored well with such a pro, just harder. This is especially true when dancing a straight final. In the larger comps like Ohio, though, with so many dancers on the floor the judges are going to look at the pro's or the pro am dancer that they know... It is hard to make a final when they don't look at you!
