I made a sort of last minute decision to go compete at Manhattan, and gosh am I glad that I did! It’s late at night, and I’m exhausted, so I’ll have to save the verbose story telling for another post, but suffice to say that I feel that I learned a lot from the experience of competing there, and I had the pleasure of dancing in front of and exchanging smiles with some very accomplished judges! I also had a great time with my friends from the studio, and I made some new friends there at the competition! And last but certainly not least, watching the Open Professional Standard was an absolute delight! Three of the top 5 couples in the world were competing inches from where I was sitting at the edge of the dance floor, and a few of their dresses even brushed against my face as they passed by during the quickstep! Talk about butterflies!!!

P.S. I don’t know why the company that took the photos decided to have their watermark say “PROOF”… I think their company name would have been much better!
