Great to hear that you're making the plunge into the competition world Sue!! I am glad that you got a little competition experience under your belt with the J&Js at Spotlight! :)

Last night was my first J & J as well...
Was it your first competition too, or just your first J&J?

And it's finally happened to me... I don't like my dancing-- I like to dance... don't get me wrong. I guess I'm just becoming to realize more and more of what I don't know and what I can't do yet. I never thought of myself as the world's best dancer in the first place and now I know that my dancing is not where I would like it to be.
A lot of people never fully realize exactly what they know, what they can't do yet, and you do!! :)

yes... on both counts... I'm not looking to compete. I'm a social dancer... I do it for the fun... I don't mind working at it but I don't want to make it work-- know what I mean? This J&J was very informal and friendly.

Oh Swing Kitten! I had no idea! Yay, go you! I can completely understand what you are saying in your second paragraph. You become more aware of your level of dance when you are competing against others. Don't get down, there is only one way and it's up from here! You're great! :D
