Embassy Ball

My summer ballroom team competed in the national formation team competition at the Embassy Ball in Irvine, CA the last weekend of August. It was a pretty crazy weekend full of late nights and early mornings- I spent the day after we got back sleeping. It was a lot of fun and we did really well- especiall considering that most of the people dancing learned and performed the medleys in the past two months! We placed second in our Latin medley and second with our Standard medley. There were a few mishaps- ask me about my partner falling on top of me sometime! hee hee oh well, accidents happen! Anyhow, it was a good experience!

SO, here are the girls in the Latin medley.


and some fun with reflective surfaces in costume before we went on.This is my friend Alayne and me before the standard medley- she is awesome.

This is one of my favorite pictures- Chris and Scott- Chris directed the summer team and Scott is our UVU Ballroom director. They are pretty fun guys.

Here is the team after we competed. My dance partners are on the right end- Daisuke and fourth from the right, Abraham.

You and your team look wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing video of your dancing.
