The tea party has always been my favorite dance event, and this year it's bigger and better than ever. Sortof. There's a ton of people filling the ballrooms and the lessons, but two very important people are missing. The dancing is great (I've missed it these few weeks or months), but for some reason my room doesn't have hot water and the hot tub is off-limits. So it's not perfect, but because I haven't done west coast since September, every dance is a revelation. It's good.
