2010 Manhattan DanceSport Championships

Posted July 8th, 2010 by layla

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!

    Congrats on doing so well!!

    Must have been a very long weekend for Victor & Anastasia as they were down at the dance camp teaching lessons as well!! Victor was his usual goofy self. It was fun to meet and talk to Anastasia though. She is a very good teacher and very sweet to talk to.
