Yes.  The tickets are so expensive!

The ad said something about the broadcast starting at  6:00 BST each evening, but I did't see anything about rebroadcast times. *sigh*

Agreed. Of course, in the US, this will be a holiday weekend, so I'm sure a lot of ballroom fans will be watching on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the very least.

DSI Smiley  For Blackpool, they list the competitors before the heat has occurred - speeds things up.  But they've already got through one round for risiing star Am latin and Standard

if you click on 'more events' at the top of the page, under the DSI command line, you can switch from one event to another without going back to the blackpool home page.

Thanks!  Smiley

It's really interesting. If you look on the DSI homepage, there's a video clip of Arunas and Katusha in which they both talk about the first time they attended Blackpool (1994, separately -- they didn't compete together or eve know each other.)  He talks about being broke and having to choose between dancing and watching some of the comp sessions.  He says he usually chose comps. Not a surprise.
