Second Place!

Greetings from Blackpool!

(Giselle is the 4th one in from the right)

I know we have a lot of updating to do but I'll post this news bulletin first and then upload and post pictures of the other things we've done and seen in a separate post. Last night, Giselle and the team competed the Standard Medley. They performed well but unfortunately didn't beat the German team. So UVU took second place and beat the other US team that took 3rd. We are very proud of them and Giselle of course was stunning and danced like a pro! The competition going on before and after the team competition was the Pro Latin Category and it was absolutely amazing! We watched the top ballroom dancers in the world competing for first. We all thoroughly enjoyed the competition and we loved seeing Giselle out on the same floor that the world's best were dancing on. Tomorrow night the team will be competing the Latin Medley against 8 or 9 other teams from various countries. It's going the be a very tough competition but we'll be cheering them on wishing them the best! I'll let you know how that goes!
