Trip the Light Fantastic

Last weekend I danced at the City Lights Ball in San Jose. I had three goals for this first competition of 2009, and I'm proud to say that I achieved them all. One goal was to make the final of the Open Pro/Am Standard "A" (45 and under) Scholarship. There were eight couples, so the cut wasn't so bad, but still the people dancing were very good so it's never safe to take anything for granted.

Here is the semi-final:


I think for the most part my dancing was better in the Semi, but for completeness sake, I've uploaded the Final too:

Hello! I've recently (in the last year) begun dancing, and making my own costumes for events. I've read a lot of your stuff about sewing, and thought I'd best check out your dancing!

You look fabulous, obviously I don't have a keen eye, but to an untrained observer you literally float across the floor. Looks wonderful!

The purple dress is beautiful too!

Cheers,

Thank you so much for reading and for your kind words, Jeni. I love that dress although I did not make it. It came from a ballroom designer called Dore'.
