I attended the Eastern Dancesport Competition on Saturday, February 15, 2014 which took place at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA. Our students competed from Friday, February 14 until Sunday February 16. Our dancers Kim and Jan competed with their professional dance partners on Friday and Saturday evenings.
I arrived at the competition at 7:30 AM on Saturday, February 15 and stayed in the ballroom until 12:30 AM. I did leave to have dinner for a few hours. So, what did I do all those hours in the ballroom? I watched our students dance with their instructors, our dancers. My husband, Kevin and I took over 1,000 pictures of our students dancing during their heats and at our home base, table K23. I brought snacks and candy. I cheered for our competitors and felt proud. Everyone looked great in every way. They were prepared for this competition and they shined on the floor. They received ribbons and awards for their dancing. All of their hard work paid off.
I work hard for the Savaria Dance Studio behind the scenes and watching our students and instructors dance makes it all worthwhile to me. I am so proud of everyone and I look forward to the next competition to see them again in their best light.
