Star of the North 2009

Summary

We were thrilled with our results at this competition. For many of our team members, this was their first competition. In addition, there were many more competitors than anticipated, with many of the bronze events having over 20 and 30 people. In spite of this, our members placed very well, earning many medals in the newcomer dances. At the bronze level, the next level up in difficulty, we did not have any finalists. However, we had several couples place in the semi-finals in multiple events.

In addition, we competed in the American style team match. We managed to place 4th out of 7 teams.
