We survived first competition of the season. Respectably. Not gloriously. When you consider that there were 38 couples in our scholarship (they ran elimination rounds before the quarter-final), the fact that we got recall votes at all was pretty impressive. We were dancing American Smooth (which is not my strong suit anyway).
Individual dances had semi-finals. We made finals in waltz (impressive for me, since I’ve always had trouble with the musicality of that dance in Smooth). Narrowly missed the cuts in tango and foxtrot.
Anyway, teacher reasonably pleased with my progress. And our motto is “when teacher is happy, is everyone happy!”
Teacher deserves a medal for putting up with me.
