I had a great time at Followlogie, which was also my first trip to Montreal! Thanks everyone for all the awesome dances, and thanks to Dominique for inviting me. My favorite part was the beautiful movie palace where the Saturday dance and show were held. Bravo! Above is a picture of me in the show, performing "You're Easy To Dance With." The detail on the wall in the background was continued throughout the entire building. I can't wait to go back for the 2011 Canadian Swing Championships--coming soon!

Lonestar Championships

I won first place in the Lonestar Championships' Charleston contest. However that victory was completely eclipsed by the wonderful social dance experiences I had during the weekend. Thank you to everyone with whom I danced, I was honored.

Lindy Focus

Lindy Focus has come and gone, and this year was as fantastic as ever! I won first place in the slow dance contest as well as the invitational Jack and Jill. My favorite part of the week was dancing with friends who I rarely see. However I also had a particularly good time in class this year. These students were awesome!! And congrats to everyone who performed in the New Years Eve show; it was one of the greatest jazz dance shows I've ever been a part of! The photos in this post are from my winning dances. Much thanks to my contest partners, Annie Trudeau and Giselle Anguizola.
