It's all over...

Wow, it's suddenly all over and I'm now feeling extremely sad that we have no more of the Sunday evening practice sessions... That said, last night was one of the most fun things I've ever been involved in over the course of my 7 years (and counting) at University....

To sum up: York Dancesport is probably the best run student society I've ever seen, YSTV is probably the best student production company I've ever seen and Nouse the best student newspaper (at York!). To you guys, thanks again for making the event what it was.

To Rosie - I can't believe we pulled it off :-).

The Aftermath

What a night! Though looking back on it it seemed to go so quickly. I can barely remember anything about our Tango now actually- such a rush! While choreographing and practicing alone 1min 30 never felt like such a long time- but now it seems we were out on the floor for only a moment. 2 6's wasn't what we were aiming for, and it was a bit disappointing after we'd ran through it perfectly beforehand, but it was just down to the nerves on the night. Thankfully, our joint 9th judges score was helped by the audience putting us 5th to make an overall 8th. What i'll take away from the event is the amount of fun and professionalism of the production. I can't praise Matt enough.
Also on the praise list for me are the top 3 couples. Sam&Kate, Henry&Harriet and Tom&Rosie: your dances were amazing- congratulations! Everyone worked so hard for this, and no-one deserves to feel disappointed with their placing.
...is it too early to ask questions about next year?
