Here's the latest info about our experience at this year's URDC!!!!!   Overall we think it was the best one ever!!  All the dances were awesome!  Although it was only a tile floor, it danced quite well and the cueing was superb.  I'll get pictures on My Webshots within the next 2 days!!!!   Another fun thing about this year's URDC is that we voted to video tape the dancers.  The 2 dances that were video taped were Laurann (the Hall of Fame Dance) and boy oh boy OUR FINE BROWN FRAME!!!!  Too Cool!!  The videos should be on the professional video that you can purchase from URDC.  And that brings me to the next interesting info from this convention.  Our association has a new name!!!  We voted overwhelmingly to change the name to International Choreographed Ballroom Dance Association (ICBDA)!!!   This is the first step in a new advertising campaign and is effective immediately!!

One of the most memorable aspects of this year's URDC was how Carol Goss announced each Showcase!  She had written words to a nursery rhyme to introduce each couple and most of them she sang!!  It was just incredible.  She's sooooooo talented!!  I can't repeat all of them, but I can give you ours:

Hey diddle , diddle,
I'll tell you a riddle
Two cows gone to Mesa to dance
While there, they did teach,
New heights they did reach
And so lightly their new herd did prance!!!!! 

It was also announced that next year's convention in San Antonio has had a date change.  It will be July 3 - 6, 2008.  Mark your calendars and plan to be there!  George will be the evening Program Chairman!
