The VCC is quickly becoming one of our favourite competitions of the year, and not just for the fabulous custom cocktails! The venue is lovely and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. The team events, Jack and Jill competitions and other entertainments are really enjoyable and add a sense of community and interactivity. Good fun:-)
We haven’t purchased any photos yet, but among the talented photographers present, we have found a few that might find their way onto our computers eventually:
Ouch – he is on my foot! Actually also happy:-)
Ouch – now she is on MY foot!
Tango face. Dance tango like you mean it.
Still happy in spite of a headless partner.
Coach Faye says these steps are too “small and comfortable”.
Might have to buy this one to see it without the watermark. In spite of appearances, that is actually a ton of makeup!
Two words - SHOW STEALER
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Here we are about to dance Championship for the first time!
The photos are a bit blurry – waiting for the professional ones coming soon, I hope. How cool to be introduced by John DePalma, walking down an actual red carpet in Las Vegas.
Not only did we not fall down (always objective #1 LOL!) but we danced really well, felt fantastic in spite of it being somewhere after 11 pm, and we came third! Admittedly it was a small field, but we will take it as a victory anyway.
The next day activity – zip line over Freemont Street.
We had a club demo this past weekend and got some nice photos taken by friends.
The problem with a height difference:
Swirly skirts and tango face:
Check out Pacifica Ball on Facebook for a video of our waltz.
We had a fantastic time at the Snowball Classic and had some great results. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to have any good photos, so we will go with some taken at a demo this past weekend.
First, the results:
Senior III Gold – 3rd out of a quarter final with 15 couples.
Senior II Gold – 5th out of a quarter with 17 couples.
Senior I Gold – 5th out of a quarter with 19 couples.
These are our best Snowball placings ever and in the past we have not even made all the finals, so we are tickled pink. So happy we are moving right out of Gold into pre-Champ. Crazy or what? Lots of reasons, good and not so good for doing this, and it should be interesting.
