Does anyone have any thoughts about this year's national amateur ballroom championships? Personally, this was my first year going. I was pleasently surprised by the almost perfect venue/city for the event. I say almost perfect, because everything was closed (restaurants, stores, etc.) even in the middle of the day on Saturday! But we were there to dance, right? And we did! We're very happy making the final of the smooth championships. We were really affected by the joy on Lauren Rand's face when she and Jonathan won the national smooth title. It was so inspiring to see all their hard work pay off. Here are the results for Adult American Smooth Championship (16 couple, quarter final): 1. Jonathan Medlin / Lauren Rand, NC 2. Nels Petersen / Theresa Kimler, MN 3. John Selby / Kristin Staszek, CA 4. Andrew and Janie Nordberg, MN 5. Hoang Quan Vu / Olga Curd, TX 6. Porfirio Landeros / Laetitia Santore, CA Anyone else have an experience to share?
