Ohio Star Ball 2010 Spectating the Ballroom Elite!

Hello to all my precious loyal friends and readers. This year, as you can tell by my lack of posting, has been rough at best. I did about three weeks ago FINALLY get clearance to dance! But, that's not what I'm writing about just now... you'll get all those updates later. THIS post is about a trip that has been in the works since November 24th 2009.

Ohio Star Ball is the United States most foremost ballroom competition. Nearly the entire ballroom year revolves around this competition that started 33 years ago in Columbus Ohio. The day after last year's competition ended I booked my hotel room for this year. At the time I was unemployed, but knew no matter what was to happen I'd attend this year. I've been aiming to do this since I started dancing nearly 4 years ago.

Many US residents may know a ballroom show that used to be aired every February on their Local PBS station called "America's Ballroom Challenge" this was in fact the Saturday evening of Ohio Star Ball. I used to watch this show every year... long before "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance?" ever hit the airwaves we were introduced to elite ballroom dancing through this once a year program.

I am so excited I can't even tell you that on Friday November 19th I will be on my way to Ohio Star Ball with a small entourage of friends for some of the most exciting ballroom competition we may ever see! I am coming out of my skin excited! I'll be meeting friends from Dance Forums and Partner Dance Online discussion forums as well as catching up with old friends and meeting all new people!

With me will be Bonnie and Michael of Bonnie's Belle Gowns, ETP777 and his new bride (yeah, a lot has happened this year!) as well as a new to the blog friend as yet to be named.Together we will spectate, dance, dine and laugh the weekend away!

I am also bringing the good 'ol laptop with me! So I hope to find a bit of time each day to post this's going to be memorable for sure! If it's one thing my job has taught me it's that I'm capable of stringing together a sentence on a keyboard even when bone weary tired. :-)

Now that I'm working my way back to the dance floor and attending this new comp.... it's time to blow the dust off this forum of expression in dance and get moving again! It can't ever be what it was...but who knows.. maybe the next chapter is better than the last several???

Hi! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

So that's why this post is great. Thanks!

When you are trying to describe yourself to an interviewer, use words that
are less common. Everyone uses words like "dependable" and "motivated." You want to appear like
you are worlds ahead of the other candidates, so using the same words
as everyone else will not give you that opportunity.
