Usually I post more during the comps we go to, but this was the first time Felix came with us for the whole four days(!) - so I was a little preoccupied when I wasn't on the floor... 🤹♀️ Short recap - first of all I am SO proud of my student Steven for dancing in his second competition at the silver level and performing so well! He worked so hard making the jump from bronze to silver, and it shows! Firsts and seconds in all of his contested single dance heats and third in three of his open bronze championships.
At the end of the week, he also places in the top 20 dancesport series students AND *da dada da* top overall male student!
Morgan White came and stayed at the hotel with us nannied for me for the first two days. Felix had a blast and got to spend a lot of quality time with his Godmother. Thank you so much Morgan. We love you 💞
It was amazing to see Taylor Moore and Allison Lenore dance pro rhythm and smooth again, and of course Cindy Gast and Pam Effinger danced extremely strong in their heats - but I'm sure you'll hear more about that from Taylor. :) Loved (finally!) Catching Chris and Karen Chaleki dance their international heats, because somehow I've always managed to miss them at comps - and they did such a great job! I love seeing am/am couples on the floor, and they are so talented.
We even got a surprise visit from Clifford Arnold! 🤸♀️ Huge thank you to Rosendo Fumero and Ruthie Gilliland Perkins for putting on such a lovely and well-run event. See you next year! 🏆
