Me and my partner used to dance DIV III until I went to work overseas. We were expecting to win Worlds and then move to DIV II quickly. Of course, that all came to an end when I left. I've been overseas now for 3 years, so I have been out of the spotlight for a while.
We lived in New Orleans Louisisana, so we usually attended the southern comps including:
A Nashville Event
Christmas In Dixie
Country Dance Mardi Gras
Peach State Festival
Southern something in Biloxi.
A few other from time to time
Ah ha . . . we've had this conversation, yes? I remember you talking about World's. My wife wants to Divisions, but I don't want to compete with her - nothing against her - it's just that almost all the couples that I know, who compete with each other - they fight and argue, and most end up in divorce. I won't go there, so we do "Just Dance" and smaller contests at some of the social clubs that we attend . . .
So, when are you coming back???
We've only benn to the Texas Classic one that you mentioned.
We are thinking about doing UC events next year. We have done two in the past--St. Louis and Chicago. We have been competing in ACDA (used to be Fun Country) but my instructor wants to get back into UCWDC and my daughter and her partner want to do that also. One of the drawbacks is that we would probably not be able to go to Worlds when they are in a different country--even going to Las Vegas next year would be doubtful. One good thing about ACDA for us is that we live in Missouri and most of the comps are close.
I am thinking about competing with my husband next year, but I have the same feelings about it as Vince--we already have "discussions" about dancing due to our different goals and needs, but I'm thinking that maybe if I bite the bullet and compete with him it will make him happy.
