  • In Soviet Russia, dancefloor hits you!

    Posted on October 28, 2009 by lauraet in competitions.

    Tweet [Will “Soviet Russia” in post title attract Russian spambots? We’ll see.] We returned Sunday night from the High Point Classic Dancesport Championships. There are no pictures from this competition, for good reason: we danced very badly! Out of 6 events entered we placed in only one. Sigh. As Daniel and I discussed on the […]
