Favorite part of Dancesport

Aside from Kim Acerson's dress...

Wow is all I can say. It's a dream. Designed by Jaime Gines... And I still can't get over it.

Anyway, my favorite part was making the Amateur Ballroom semi-final! Gah!

I squealed like a schoolgirl when I saw our number up there, and Andrew and I are still giddy today just thinking about it. It was amazing. And I'm very happy with how we danced last night, it felt great. According to the marks from the semifinal, we were couple # 10, out of 13 couples. Which means we didn't just squeeze in by the skin of our teeth, we were there fair and square! And we actually got a few marks from the semi too. (Ok, just five... but hey, I thought we wouldn't get a single one!)

Here are just a few pictures of the momentous occasion :)

I put up way too many pictures on Facebook if you care to see more... Andrew's dad took all of these--aren't they great!? Thanks for coming to support us, we love having our cheering squad :)

Also, I said we haven't practiced nearly enough lately, but I though of something. Andrew's been training really hard for Smooth (which he did very well in) and I've been doing team and working in technique classes, so I think in a sense all of that came together and helped our partnership out a lot. It helps to diversify.

Also, doing five dances in a row is death. I need to really start running...

More videos on my Youtube channel if you're interested.


  1. Oh my gosh, I am in LOVE with your dress!! (I also love the classy, not over-the-top, pretty hair.) Congrats on your many amazing accomplishments this weekend!!

  2. In the tiny font on my phone, I first read that as "Andrew's been training really hard for Smooch (which he did really well in)". Great photos. Congratulations!
