Going back to the MAC! It was so great that we need to re-experience it! Just kidding. We’re competing at the Mid-Atlantic Championships this weekend, which conveniently has the same acronym. Not much to say here…we’ve practiced a few times since the (other) MAC two weeks ago, run some rounds, and tweaked some styling in our smooth foxtrot routine. It’s mostly a smaller competition than the MAC, so I’m going to be lazy and skip the tanning. Our smooth events only have three couples each, though our standard events are more substantial in terms of numbers of competitors, both starting at a quarterfinal.
One thing that will be nice about this comp is my dad will be attending and plans to take lots of pictures. He’s been very into his new hobby of photography and took some excellent shots at a recent competition. Hopefully he will recognize me….he does not seem to register my identity (as his own daughter) very quickly when I am in full ballroom-glam mode. It’s both sad and hilarious.
I will also be attending another collegiate competition next week, but dancing with various other people on the team and not my regular partner. Mixing it up a bit! And even doing rhythm. Crazy, right?
