    Silver standard Routine (attached)

    If you do a hover telemark at the end of the third wall and you're adhering to the book, you'd need to change up the start of the fourth wall if doing a proper hover telemark, no? Since it would end DW of the new wall?

    New NDCA Bronze and Silver rules

    I wondered about this -- how effective is the rule if enforcing it / looking for it requires following one couple and letting others who may be infracting in other ways go?

    MAC 2018

    Who's here this weekend? I'm being a bit of a curmudgeon and going to sleep super early tonight to rest up for the comp proper, but I'll hopefully be out and about in the evenings!

    Casa Musica songs usually aren't, but at least you can download them one-by-one from the site, instead of needing to purchase an entire CD.

    Blackpool Teacher/Student vs Pro/am

    That's ... egregious. Worst I heard / saw in a video once was a Smooth Viennese at like 70?? MPM -- music director didn't even notice until one of the judges turned around and got his attention, at which point he slid the tempo down and everyone breathed a sigh of relief.

    Blackpool Teacher/Student vs Pro/am

    ... I try to make sure all my music is uniform throughout the 1:30. :( But also, not entirely sure why the USA Dance vs. NDCA distinction is being brought in here. NDCA competitions have both pro-am and mixed-amateur events -- I thought that this new distinction at Blackpool was meant to...

    With the amateur teacher, I'm assuming? What if they also have an amateur partner?
