    Depends on the competition really, most of them the fees are pretty much the same from the organizers.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: You had said 4,000 and I read 40,000.... No wonder I was confused.

    But there's a certain set who want all that...what was the name of that book that was being discussed a few years ago, "ballroom glamour" something?

    "Glamour Addiction: Inside the American Ballroom Industry"

    I own that book and read it a few years ago, it's a fascinating read. It made me realize (and allowed me to help some of my fellow students realize) that many of the happenings/tactics that we were not entirely happy about were not unique to our studio, but common aspects of ballroom culture in general.

    It helped me understand some things/people too... it's so far removed from what I think/how I view my pro-am experience!

    I might be thrown out of this thread if I start looking for a partner her, but this actually not a bad idea. Does forum have a place for partnership ads?
    Anyway, I am on the west coast, not near Chicago, sorry Loki!

    Use your signature to advertise things like this. Although I'm not sure how many post you have. You have to have a certain number of post to be able to do that. This is a pretty long thread though and main thing is we keep the conversation focused on the topic overall.
