i checked out of preliminary bronze, and got into intermediate bronze! the scorer asked me if i was musical, and i said i played a little bit and he said there was something musical about my dancing. and he remarked about how i was new to the program, and asked when i started? "october" and how often i did classes? "once a week". He scored me 93 on all except for rhumba where i got a 94 because he said "i really liked how you danced the rhumba."
it was nice, i think i'm slowly feeling i'm part of the community. it definitely took time.
