    Today's the final day for registration for the Northeast Open in Stamford, and I just made the final arrangements w/ my pro for what I'll be doing...

    It'll be my first comp. Will be dancing Waltz, Tango, and Viennese Walz. Both Newcomer & Full Bronze levels.

    Wish I could add Foxtrot & Quickstep & go for the scholarship, but I've only had one FT lesson and zero QS. Actually, zero VW, but we danced it socially a few weeks ago and he liked it, so we're tossing that one in as well.

    I'm going to shoot for doing all 5 dances at Heritage -- I'm pretty sure my pro is competing there, so I could tag along.

    Who else will be in Stamford that weekend???

    Maybe we can rent a car together.. I am still 50/50 with this one as we have so many comps coming up. But probably

    I think the winning couple ends up having costs covered

    I will attend, just to watch. We usually do this comp every year, but this time we are just going to watch.
