DERT

So, last weekend I went to Cambridge to visit thethirdvoice. On Saturday I then made a daytrip to York for DERT (the Dancing England Rapper Tournament). Wasn't in Thrales competition side this year, but they've told me they're expecting me to be next year (eeek!), so it was quite nice to experience the competition as a spectator first.

Having been told by the side that Thrales were a premier side and we'd be in the premier class, was very surprised to find us in the open when I got there. Some of the side were a little "miffed" about this, but at the end of the day, we do it for fun so what does it matter.

Spent the morning following Thrales around for the first 2 pubs then after lunch stayed where I was to see some of the other sides in the competition. Of the ones I saw on the day the Kingsmen must have been the most spectacular. Sandbeck were also very good, it was clear why they won last year.

Andy asked me if I'd like to be number 3 as John is now doing that for the Crownsmen, so he wants to move him so he's doing different positions for the 2 sides (avoid mix ups of style, etc), so it looks like I may be learning that in the near future (eeek! tumble!).

Didn't stay for the results as I had to get back to Cambridge, but was sent them afterwards to discover the nice suprise of us winning the Open (so being put there did pay off in the end). We came 5th overall, won the open, were runners up for the Tyzak Shield (for audience buzz factor in the dances) and also joint runners up for best characters (personally think that links in with the audience buzz as it's definitely got something to do with how the Tommy/Betty/etc work the audience).
