We had such a fantastic time with all of our dancing friends and family. From all the wonderful teachers and students, kids, amateurs and pros that danced, through to our incredibly hard working judges, staff and volunteers. 

During the first Bash we have laughed hard, been inspired by great dancing and partied every night till the sun came up.

Pro-Am Open Scholarship and Championship events now back to customary 5 (or 4 for Smooth) dances.

You may have noticed on Form B the Pro-Am Open Scholarship and Championship were listed as being only 3 dances. We traced the source of this error to Jonathan who must have snuck in and changed the form when my back was turned.

Apparently the prize money was so good (more than he had won at any event when he was a Pro) he misguidedly planned to enter the even

Top Teacher - As a boost to help put the top prizes firmly within your reach, we lowered the bar for you (because it's harder to jump on sand). We reduced the first and second place required number of entries for the bonus (down from 325 and 150) and balanced it out through bumping up the bonus lower level entries requirement slightly.
