    I wasn't aware that once you missed a year you had to start all over again. I thought it was a once-and-forever thing. Perhaps I didn't read the rules properly.
    This is going to be so funny.
    Do you (or anyone) know why they didn't dance this year?

    Arunas posted on Facebook that Katusha had a really bad stomach flu. :(

    Sad. Seems she's well now though...Karina Smirnoff's IG stories showed them doing a bunch of shows in Lithuania only yesterday.

    It would have been awesome to see how their presence would have affected not even the overall placements, but the distribution of first place marks...

    That was my teacher. He would only go with a minimum of 5 of us. We had a blast!!

    My non stop flight from Los Angeles was $800. But my B&B (a couple of blocks from the Winter Gardens) for 6 nights came to only $300!! And of course I bought tickets and stayed for as many days as I could before I had to come back to the real world to write programs so that I could make money to buy dance lessons and food (but mostly dance lessons).

    Also, because the number of rounds was a complete unknown I entered both Single Dances and Championship. Quarter for each. However, single dances are not required (unless they change it) and next year there will be so many more people that I have no intention of doing both which really cuts down the cost significantly! Factoring in the cheap hotel, this comp was barely more expensive than USDC or Holiday Dance Classic for me. Of course it is a significant factor whether your teacher will already be there, and if not, how many other of his/her students are going.

    Championships are by decade like Single Dances in the US which means your teacher can dance with more students.
