A few competition photos!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO WISHED ME WELL AT THE COMPETITION!!
I'm finally starting to feel normal again....and put my house back together after the flurry of ballroom preparation.
This simple black dress and boots was the perfect, comfortable outfit to wear to drag all of my ballroom finery into the hotel and get settled. In this picture, I already have my ballroom makeup on: I did it the morning at home before I left.
The black dress above is my dress for the evening professional show.....its a formal event; the pro-am competition is over and we all gather to watch a glitzy professional show and competition.
At the pro show, after the pro-am comps are over, there is an awards ceremony in which the top 10 ballroom teachers are chosen.....
qualification is based on how many entries the teacher has and how many of those entries have placements in the top three.
That's Marcel!!! He placed in the top 10!
There are at least 60 or more instructors and its quite an honor to receive this recognition. I'm so happy for him.
I love that pouty face.
Surprise....I even tried my hand at American Rhythm (ChaCha, Rhumba and Swing). I'm a BALLROOM girl all the way, but did this for fun. I rented this dress....
I definitely think I will be dancing this style again; and I'm going to have a dress made....a simple tank style top with a skirt that comes mid thigh and is trimmed in a big Ostrich feather boa at the bottom. I had a blast.
As soon as some of the other pictures start to trickle in, I will post them.
By the way,
I place first, second and third in most of my dances....
except for the scholarship dance (money!)...
I place 5th out of 20....
which is ok.
I had a great time....
I've never danced so many dances at a comp before and it was tiring!
But I had a magical time.
Can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs!!!
