Well it's the night before the comp. We are feeling pretty prepared, though our latin and quickstep are a little dodgy. So is our Tangoette, but that's expected, because we were doing so many things wrong that there wasn't time in one lesson to correct them. We've got most of the really bad bits ironed out though.

Apart from that, our Waltz and Merrilyn are prepared. They're the dances we've been doing since the dawn of time (or so it seems). They still have room for improvement, but I'm confident that there is less than most of our competitors. Our coaches have been training us to a standard above our current level, in preperation for elevation and with the mentality of 'you can pick it up, it wont hurt you to learn it now, or at least get a vague idea of the concept'.
All said and done I can't wait! We haven't been to a proper comp in ages.

the next thing to happen in our state is in November so have a few months to do.  we are going Interstate first so that will hold us hopefully in good stead when we get back.

There will be medalist comp so Lioness should be on the floor Cheesy

I am not sure about other state but dancing is struggling in SA, we need to get more young people involved but it is an uphill battle I think that those at the top need to work together for the benefit of the sport. Not saying that they are not but we need to get former dancers involved in promoting and encouraging or mentoring new people. Most of the people currently involved int he organization of the state bodies either run schools or are serious dancers and they just dont have time and because of that it struggles.

Very complex and I am not sure if I know the answer. Undecided

Yep...we always are, though frankly it's getting a bit ridiculous. The only people I compete against are my sisters, and with me getting private lessons they aren't much of a competition.

We have plenty of competition amongst the medallists, but we aren't allowed to go in there because we don't actually have our medal, we're just competing in the division. They just don't want us to beat them properly...

we still have 2 large comps before the Aussies - the Star on 31st October and the QADS titles middle of November.  Just found out my son and partner can't dance at the Star - his partner has a final uni exam on that day.  Would have been nice for them to have another practice run before the Aussies but can't be helped. - mummsie

You mean either the comp is NOT run on a weekend or your son's partner has an exam on a weekend!  Shocked

And she's really annoyed about the exam. It doesn't start until 1.30pm and won't finish until 3.30pm. Such a nuisance that it's being held on a Saturday.
