At my last competition, I entered full silver and open silver for smooth. For some reason, the organizers scheduled the events so that open silver came after closed silver scholarship (which was my most important smooth event). So I had 4 smooth single dances, scholarship and then another 4 single dances. And for the second set my teacher decided to improvise more because a) we were already done with the scholarship and b) we could use this as an extra opportunity to do new standard material on a competition floor - since it was "open" silver, we could do that. So he told me that he will improvise and I should be ready for anything. And what do you know, my marks for that set were better than for the previous set or even the scholarship, even though in addition to the new standard material he lead drops and backbends we're not allowed to do in closed silver. When I commented to him about this, he said "it's because you weren't thinking, you just danced"

It must have been in the air, b/c at the same comp, my teacher led me into stuff I've never done before, in the open silver smooth. And I, too, was not thinking -- to get back on topic, I never think on the floor, other than, more or less, "Here's my teacher; ain't he cool?" If I'm presenting him, I don't have any room in my head to worry about me.
I have to try that as well. I think having open silver after the closed scholarship sort of took off the pressure to make it another practice round for the main event.

I think it is too late to get detail thought on the dance floor and could spoil things if you get yourself too wrapped up in them. I say to myself this is what all those lesson are about and enjoy! which is what we do.....I dont get myself nervous I just enjoy the company of my man.

This sounds ridiculous but have you heard Julie Andrews song 'I Feel Pretty' mostly described my feeling on the floor lol !

I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me today
I feel charming
Oh so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real
See the pretty girl in that mirror there?
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!
I feel stunning
And entrancing
Feel like running
And dancing for joy



Off the floor however ... is a completely different thing lol !
