I've been to Blackpool…...

…… to the  ISTD National Grand Finals of Ballroom, Latin and Sequence dancing!

We got back yesterday from our weekend away dancing in the annual championships. It was Evan's 3rd time and my 4th time of dancing and we did really really well.

I will add some photos as lots of my lovely customers have been asking how we got on!

Here is Evan first
 With his little friend Chloe (whose Grandma Joyce is one of my lovely customers)
Here is a video of Evan. Its a little bit shaky but he is number 155, one of the taller boys.
And here he is dancing in the Semi-Final. Sadly he didnt get through to the final, but I am sure you will agree he danced fantastic for 10 years old and on such a big dance floor! Incidentally the dance floor we danced on cost £80,000!!!
Needless to say we are very proud of Evan for his confidence and performance!!!
I had some great results too. I got to the Semi-Final for my Sequence category, a recall for my Quickstep and to the Semi-Final for my Jive and also for my pairs Waltz with my lovely Paul BUT the best news is that we came FIRST in the Over 35's Bronze and Below Cha Cha Cha, beating 32 other couples to the title!!!!!! 
Here are a few pics
Me and my "dancing husband", one of the nicest fellas I know and one of my bestest friends! 
I'll be back with a crafty post soon!
