Matt and I are going to a whole new sort of event tomorrow—at least, it’s totally new for us.
We’ve got tickets to see some of the preliminary rounds at the Philadelphia Ballroom Dance Festival, down at the Airport Marriott. The festival is organized by Sandy Fortuna, owner of Universal Dance Studios, and mother to DWTS pro Brian, about whom I’ve been blogging recently. Sandy offered me an opportunity to finally see a real live ballroom dance festival, after all these years of watching them on PBS, and Matt and I leapt at the opportunity.*
I’m really excited. I don’t realy know what it’s going to be like in person. I’ll probably be dressed entirely wrong, and I likely won’t have a good enogh eye to really know how the judges will be scoring. But I’m really looking forward to it.
According to the website, Saturday night is already sold out—I believe that’s when the finals will take place and the champions will be crowned. But if you’re anything like me, the folks who are in the earlier rounds are still so far beyond my own capabilities that I’m sure to find their dancing entirely satisfying and impressive. So, if you’re anything like me, you’d probably enjoy tomorrow night—for which tickets are still available.
Just one option for a last-minute Friday plan….
* Well, at least I “sqee’ed” and jumped for joy. It’s entirely possible that Matt is humoring me a little bit. Ain’t he the best?!?
