In October we are competing on two consecutive weekends. Can you believe it? One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2009 was to do 3 dance competitions; by the end of next month we’ll have done 4. Woohoo! Here’s where we’re going:
On October 18 we’ll be dancing at the SouthEastern Amateur Challenge that is part of the Hotlanta Dance Challenge in Atlanta. Our own Eddie Ares is the brains behind Hotlanta and it is, as they say, a Really Big Shew. The Southeast Regional Championship is no longer held in Atlanta (as it used to be every year), so hopefully this event will become a draw for amateur couples as well as pro-am competitors. I’ve not yet been to Hotlanta even as a spectator–as much as I am looking forward to dancing, I’m looking forward to watching even more!
The weekend of October 23-25 we’ll be in High Point, North Carolina at the High Point Classic Dancesport Championships. This competition is organized by Wayne Crowder, the same gentleman who runs the Triangle Open where we had so much fun back in February. So we expect to enjoy this one a lot. We may also have some long-lost friends coming to watch us dance. Hooray!
That will probably be the end of our competitive trajectory for 2009, which means it’s time to sit down and figure out where we want to go in 2010…Montréal, perhaps?
