Rommel Oramas and I are back in San Francisco for the US Tango Salon Competition. This is our 4th year and we are excited to be here. The Marriott where the event is held is always friendly and comfortable.
We also enjoy coming because we see tango friends that we see every year, so it’s a tango reunion of sorts.
This year there are 43 couples competing in Tango Salon! That’s great!
There are 100 couples participating overall this year – there are 14 couples in the Stage Category and they also have additional categories this year for Senior Salon and for Group Choreography.
We are number 101 this year. And the first 2 nights we will dance in Round 4 – the 4th and last group to dance.
I decided this year to have my hair done by a fabulous hairdresser, Keiko of Kabuki Hair and Skin, here in San Francisco. She was amazing. I received so many compliments on my hair
They did not eliminate anyone after this 1st round, which means everyone continues tomorrow.
This year Rommel and I prepared and practiced a lot. We are feeling confident and hopeful that the judges will see us as champions, finally, this year!
This year the competition will not be streamed live. So I will try my best to give updates, share pictures and video.

See you tomorrow!
