Thanks to you all

I think we can safely say that last night went very well indeed.

A huge thanks to Claire for getting the ball rolling on the event in the first place, arranging dancers and costumes, getting trophies and medals, working with Jamie to get all the faffy admin sorted, and of course coping with me. Without them both the event couldn't have gone ahead.

I was very impressed with all the routines, congrats to the beginners who took part in the demos too, some exceptional dancing out there last night and all the celebs and Dancesport dancers should be proud. As should YSTV who did an incredible job weaving together the show for the people in the bar and online (thanks to Nouse for hosting the online stream too).

Joel and Sarah's demo was sensational and their judging and guidance throughout the whole four weeks prep was gratefully received.

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 :-).
