So hie thee this THURSDAY to Viejo Correo after 8 p.m., or Los Consagrados on Saturday between 7-10 p.m., or after 8 p.m. to Circulo Apolo this FRIDAY.

Note: Ruben and I were asked to be judges, but we declined based on our numerous friends at Los Consagrados. We could never judge between our friends.

I love what you said: "We should never judge between our friends."

Friendship and personal relations are ALWAYS more important than prestige!! And much more difficult to attain.

Why don't you and Ruben enter the competition?

Been there, done that.
I'm surprised you ask this question; after finishing so well in the Finals of the Metropolitano (#14 out of more than 500 couples), why should we enter an intermilonga contest?

Well it's true, there are people who just love to enter contests, but we're not like that.

We've proven ourselves against those who had personal relationships with the judges, who took lots of classes with the judges, who were related by blood to the judges; we, who had no relationship whatsoever with the judges, yet still did ok, even better than ok.

So we feel no need to compete; no need to prove ourselves on the dance floor. We do that in every tanda.
