2013 DSCPI First Quarter Ranking

This is perhaps the happiest competition I ever had.

Onang and I never finished as Champion in any of the three categories we joined, but I was contented enough that we got 2 Bronze and 1 Silver awards in Grade D and the Special Event categories – this being our second competition together. Considering what had happened the past month, I believe this was a good finish. In addition, my partner almost couldn’t dance during competition day as she was experiencing some weird shit with her stomach and would faint anytime, but still she showed me and everyone else she was a real fighter.

I am so grateful for a lot of other things:

1. Onang is finally graduating from engineering school. Yey! In a year or so, she will be a licensed Civil Engineer. While preparing for the boards, we can have a lot of time for practice. She will become a professional soon!

2. Finishing 2nd in Special Event Male even though Onang was hardly dancing and focusing on not fainting – hahahaha!

2nd Place in Special Event Male - Latin

3rd Place in Special Event Female - Latin
3.  Everyone in the team made it to the Finals! :)

4. My mother watched me compete for the FIRST TIME since I started dancing. My sister Ryanne and Tita Cherry watched too! We had a chance to bond over lunch after the competition.

5. One adjudicator remembered us and told us we looked really great together. :)

6. My close buddy BJ was Champion in Grade C – the place where he and Rochelle really ought to be.

7. Roque and Rhea finished as 4th in Amateur Latin – my wallet isn’t happy though as I promised them Yakimix.

8. My friend Nigel being incredibly supportive. I hope he competes soon.

9. Made up with a close friend after the competition and we’re now okay! :)

So that was it, the First Quarter Ranking for this year. Everyone went home happy. We will practice harder and prepare for upcoming contests!

Congrats BMG! Fuck, I would never trade these people for anything in the world.

the BMG team -- all winners!
And, by the way, don’t you just love our costumes?
