Wordless Wednesday – Dance Competition

Competitions for balboa dancing
This is a not-so-wordless wednesday. I've mentioned before that I dance and that I love vintage dances like lindy hop, balboa, and blues. Well, here is a recent photo of me dancing in a competition for balboa. I'm wearing a 1940's floral dress with cognac brown ReMix shoes. I'm also wearing a fascinator in my hair that I made with my grandmother's vintage brooch. I competed in my very first competitions last weekend and it was terrifying and exhilarating! I did manage to take 3rd place in a Pro-Am competition (where a pro and an amateur dance together).
