I need to find a national event that only has like 3 couples between all divisions.  I'm willing to consider moving to win an event like that.  Wink

OK, so yesterday I took an hour private in the morning.  Then salsa practice for 2.5 hours in the afternoon, with 75 other salsero's at the bloor street United church, then 30 up club dancing last night for 4 hours.

Today, Sunday I went to the 2somedance.com event.  They had a couple of the dancing with the stats choreographers/dancers doing workshops all day long up in Woodbridge at the performing arts center *very nice dance facility, BTW).  That was 5 one hour workships from 10am till 4pm and dancing at Westway tonight from 7:45pm to 1014pm.

That's hmmmm 14 or so hrs just in the last couple of days.  I need help!  Not to mention a foot massage...

I really like the westway, except for the food.  I work shifts so every other week I'm able to go on Wednesday nights, when it's quite quiet except for people who are serious about practicing.  There is lots of room to dance and they don't mind you working on stuff on the dance floor.


I do go Sundays and Fridays occassionally, though try to change it up between the 30 up and Famee. The food at fame is great.

I find 30 Up club quite cliquey and aloof.  The members always seem imbroiled in petty disputes with each other and there is a lot of petty bickering and backstabbing going on.  They keep asking me to join but...I don't want to get caught up in it.

I had quite the blow out with them on the weekend.  People came up to me all night complaining about the same fellow who castigated me for dancing an int'l tango to an argentine tango music.  There weren't eight couples on the whole floor!

And this is a social dance club?  Not very social. I noticed there were teachers up there doing the same thing but no one is talking to them. So I think it was personal, he was just putting me in my place.  Just what I need out on a saturday night with my friends...

Westway food is not good - but when you consider the price for an evening out dancing on one of the best floors in the province its still great value.  30 and up?  I'll take the 5th.  But we should discuss such in the Canada region board Smiley

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Hmmm 2.5 hrs today.  Met one dance partner this morning in the gym at goodlife and second tonight after work, 10pm at cm cha cha.  Hey ee there were a few couples practicing there tonight for this and next weekend, in your divisions, both pre champ and champ.  David and Ann and another tall chinese couple doing champ.  All lovely dancers.

I see you like the yellow cup cafe!  Me too and it's close by where I live.  I hanker for their Kenyan AA every once in a while and get my benedict fix there on Sundays...

Good luck all this coming competiton at the Ontario Opens!
