so she dances

This past weekend was the US National Amateur DanceSport Championships which were held at BYU! I competed in 4 class events because of my dance classes I am taking. I competed Silver Samba and Waltz and Gold Rumba and Foxtrot. In Foxtrot and Waltz (the standard dances) I made it into the quarterfinals which is farther than I have ever gotten in competition before and in Rumba and Samba I made it to the round just before quarterfinals. It was pretty exciting, especially because competing Gold was up a level so I wasn't expecting any call backs. It was a very fun, yet very tiring weekend! I love dancing and it was great to see so many amazing dancers that were competing for the championship titles.

To go along with this post I am including the lyrics from Josh Groban's song So She Dances. It is one of my favorite songs, and I think it tells a really cute story. I like it. :)

a waltz when she walks in the room
she pulls back the hair from her face
she turns to the window to sway in the moonlight
even her shadow has grace

a waltz for the girl out of reach
she lifts her hands up to the sky
she moves with the music, the song is her lover
the melody's making her cry

so she dances
in and out of the crowd like a glance
this romance is
from afar calling me silently

a waltz for the chance I should take
but how will I know where to start?
she's spinning between constellations and dreams
her rhythm is my beating heart

so she dances
in and out of the crowd like a glance
this romance is
from afar calling me silently

I can't keep on watching forever
I give up this view just to tell her
when I close my eyes I can see
the spotlights are bright on you and me
we've got the floor
and you're in my arms
how could I ask for more?

so she dances
in and out of the crowd like a glance
this romance is
from afar calling me silently

I can't keep on watching forever
and I'm giving up this view just to tell her

cuteness :)
