Extreme Ballroom Competition 2009

It's ballroom time again! I had my first ballroom competition of the year yesterday. It was the Extreme Ballroom Competition, hosted by my own school. It was at Hillcrest High School in Idaho Falls. I (and all the kids from 1st-3rd grades) competed in the American Swing and the Cha Cha.

My partner was Grayson Dahlke. I only got a chance to practice with him once in class. He was really nice and a great partner. It is his first year but he dances really good! When we got to the competition, we practiced for a while before we competed. We did swing first and then Cha Cha. I like Cha Cha better.

I was really excited when they did awards because Grayson and I got 3rd place in the Cha Cha. I got a white ribbon. I can't wait for the next competition! Here are some pictures!

Vannie,
Cha cha is good - swing is better. I was always a swing guy. Dance runs in your family. Grandpa Scott
