Well, last night I had our latin and ballroom Christmas Ball. It was magical :) We had a professional couple from Stricly Come Dancing (what you guys would know as Dancing with the Stars) doing some amazing demos, and it was so much fun
The Christmas Ball is held in the Assembly Rooms.
I got a blister from the boots I wore to walk there because the insoles I'd put in were peeling, but I ignored the pain xD I performed the First and Last Waltzes with the same guy, which provided a nice symmetry to the evening, learnt how to do a Stop and Go in the Jive, and generally danced and enjoyed myself and woohoo :) It's traditional that the male social secretary gives all the girls a single rose when they leave, and this year ours were white. The guys got cookies from the female social sec :)
I bought a new dress for the occasion and it was beautiful :)
There were about 300 of us there, as it's held on the same day as our Winter Competition, so we get loads of outside competitors staying for the ball too. It's always such an amazing evening and this year was no exception. Now we've got the May Ball to look forwards to, which is held in the Pump Rooms.

This morning I am tired, my room is a mess, and I have loads of work to do. And lessons/practice tonight xD
