The number of the day: 13

Julia, my dance partner, and I went to Finsterwalde to participate in a dance contest today. We got the number 13. There was only one competitor and the contest manager had to cancel the contest because two of four pairs, who subscribed to this contest, just canceled today. There is a minimum of 3 participants. We drove the long way from Berlin to Finsterwalde to get the message that there are not enough participants – I wanted everything but this! After a small talk to the manager he agreed in allowing the youth group to participate in this contest too. They already had a contest but two of five pairs from the youth group joined the main group where Julia and I belong to. At this Point – 30 min. later than announced – we were enough pairs – four – to make a contest. In the one and only final round the youth and main group got their own scoring. we got the first place in the main group, a rose for Julia and a small present. This was the fifth and last placement we needed for upgrading to the B class. After this “warming up” we realy needed a “cooling down” break. We participated also in the B class contest and got – as expected – the 7th place of 7 pairs – but this doesn’t matter.

Place 5 of 10

Today my dance partner and I reached the last round and the 5th place of 10. It is not bad – but we can do better.
