Wow, wow, wow! Very nice clips, Big10! That Junior and Emily performance was particularly amazing!

(and congrats to Jorjet on being preggers!)

Yeah, and I was lucky enough to be sitting in the front row for most of the performances, as part of my role on the organizing committee for this year's Congress. :cool:

My favorite performances were that one from Junior & Emily and the performances by Fusion Salsera. Plus, many of the performers did a lot of social dancing, so it was super-cool to see Magna Gopal "doing her thing" on both Saturday night and Sunday night. :notworth:

Some of those performances were insane!!! I'm just a beginner, but when I think of myself in the future, I picture all that acrobatic flipping and sliding, etc. I love getting thrown around-in a good way. I know that it's all choreographed and for exhibition only, but that is what appeals to me.
