This past weekend, the Binghamton Ballroom Dance Team took a ten hour bus ride all the way over to Columbus, Ohio. The bonding that takes place every year during the bus ride only makes us each wish that the drive was longer (except during those last 15 minutes when our numb limbs and cranked necks are dying to sleep horizontally on an actual bed.) With perhaps five hours of sleep the whole weekend, the team competed from 8:00am until 6:00pm and then watched the professionals compete on Saturday evening. The professionals dancing is absolutely breathtaking and there were so many moments when my jaw dropped to the ground and I wished that I could replay it. While my partner and I didn't get any ribbons which was pretty disappointing, it felt great to cheer the rest of the team on.
I hope everybody will have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
