Thanks.  That makes sense to me.  Cool  I would hate to have been in one of the couples that didn't get recalled for certain dances, I have to say, especially if it was the first dance.  In their position, I'd be convinced that I wasn't going to make the cut and get to the final. Hmm.  

A couple other things I noticed from listening to the commentators. One: One of the competitors was dancing on a *probably* broken big toe.  Two: The previous winners are excused from dancing in the earlier rounds.  That seems awfully unfair. *shrug*

Oh yeah and did you see that spectacular fall and recovery?  I'll go back and try to find it on the video.  ETA: It'sat around 10:53

What sportsmanship!

Not a fan of some of the costumes, though, I have to say.  Rainbow stripes and multiple feather boas? Hmm.

Our studio's couple - Maurizio Vescovo & Andra Vaidilaite - came 4th in Pro Latin.  Cheesy 

No kidding! They are at your studio! Drooling!

I guess we can think of it the other way around - it will be REALLY exciting if you are one of the couples getting into the next round, especially the final - even one dance. I mean, it is blackpool final!!!!

I think many comps do that. I mean, it could be viewed multifolded.
1. If they were the finalist, most likely, they will end up in the finalist. So why bother doing the early rounds? It saves time on both side.
2. Normally, the finalist are "older." It is probably better for their health/performance to not dance for a whole day Cool.
3. This is a side note, correct me if I am wrong, but if you didn't compete in, let's say blackpool in this case, last year. You HAVE to compete from round1 again, even if you were a champion the previous year. Also, if you are, say champion in RS event, you are invited to compete in Quarterfinal (in the respected category) for the next year.

okok. One more thing.

For the Latin Pro, I am most excited about Stefano and Daria. I always enjoy watching him, and I thought Daria was (when she danced with Val) really great and feminine.

We try to not knock them over.  Cheesy Grin Tongue

I don't often see them practising - but sometimes teaching.  They are both very nice....

We also have Anton Lebedev and Anna Borsch at the same studio - they are #1 in pro standard in Canada and are competing at Blackpool tomorrow. [I used to dance pro-am championship with Anton Smiley ]

Everyone wish them good luck!!

they are up to the 4th round - final 49 and A&A are still in... oh exciting...

I guess that means they should have 25 through to the next round... which means 13 in the semi ?
