I am happy to announce that Rommel Oramas and I took second place at the USA Argentine Tango Salon Competition in San Francisco this last weekend.
Below are videos from our final day of competition. Each round has 3 songs and thus 3 video links below. Each video shows the finalists that were in Round 1 of the competition. We were #14.
We were finalists last year and placed 5th. Ramada and Yumiko were 2nd then and were clearly in favor to win this year and they did. Rommel and I have enjoyed are experiences at the competition. We have met such nice people both years and we do feel a shared camaraderie and sense of community regardless of the competition. I believe that it is this way because of the size of the competition, which is still quite small. I know that the organizers hope that it will grow over the coming years. Their goal is to have a representative from every state compete.
Rommel and I put all of our focus towards the competition for several months. This included training with several teachers, practicing together, listening to and dancing to a wide range of musical choices, and for me, my gyrotonics classes.
Now the question hangs in the air as to whether Rommel and I will go to Buenos Aires for the World Championships in August. I will keep you posted. What do you think?
Thank you all who read for your continued support.
