So, Caleb and I did a little preliminary competition at a local High School this weekend to get some floor time before Nationals in two weeks. We danced Amateur Ballroom which means it was a 5 dance event: Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep in a row. The first two dances ran smoothly. As we were dancing VW, the clock struck midnight, one of my good friends on team and fellow competitors accidentally stepped on my foot as I was in motion completely ripping my shoe open exposing my whole foot, like so-
I learned two important lessons from this experience:
1. I am hardcore
2. My shoes were cheaply made. How embarrassing.
