Day 2: End of the Qualifying Rounds 25 Couples moving on to the Semi-Finals.
Rommel and I spent an hour early in the day practicing. I had another fabulous doo by Keiko of Kibuki Hair and Skin.
I decided to wear the same outfit in order to remind the judges of who I was! And I was advised to really go for it… so we did!
Rommel and I made it to the semi-finals. We are 1 of 25 couples moving on. All the Arizona competitors have passed to the Semi-finals. Way for AZ to represent!!!
Rommel was having a conversation with a colleague, a fabulous teacher and beautiful performer, who has been 1 of our fans the last 2 years. He said to Rommel, “Do the judges know what tango salon is? Because of all the couples I see dancing you are the ones who are dancing ‘tango salon’. Maybe the judges need to decide what it is first!” This has been a problem over the years and I too have commented on this in the past. (see previous blogs on tango competition).
So we proudly dance onward!
