I'm now at the end of my dance competition mini-marathon: three competitions in four weeks. Compared to professionals chasing a title, and the big Pro/Am heavy hitters, this is nothing, but for me it was a big deal. My third comp in this cycle was the Desert Classic, in Palm Desert (next to Palm Springs). My best dancing was in a somewhat odd multi-dance event. What made it odd was that we only had to dance Waltz, Tango, and Foxtrot, and that they played the music for a very short amount of time.
We finished third out of six couples, our best result of the day. I'm not sure if this looks any better or worse than the other competitions we danced in this month-long competition binge -- I really feel like I want to take a day or two off, then get back and have several weeks in the studio to work on my dancing and several weeks at home to work on my fitness level.
