I’m not which topic I’m supposed to post this link on, so if this is the wrong place, please point me to the topic I’m allowed to share this ⬇️

Also, I’m not sure if this has already been posted bc when I’ve searched to see if it has already been posted, I cannot find it. 

While I was digging around for pics of Jenn K’s weight gain I stumbled upon this video of the unedited 1996 finals: https://www.texasarchive.org/library/index.php/2013_04792

What I found most interesting was that a lot of these women were much heavier than the ladies who try out nowadays. 

Oh that was something to see ....that chick in the black and white leotard at the very beginning...I just want to "bless her heart" right off the floor.  😛

That was fascinating!  Not just the outfits and the hair and the bad dancing, either!  What killed me was the disinterested girls in the chairs - legs up under them, chewing gum?, totally bored!  And the ones trying out couldn't even stand right.  In the pre-kick line, the brunettes had 5 diff girls with 5 diff foot positions!  And they all got tired and heavy breathed even on the easier stuff.  We've come a long way, baby!

I think many posters may have missed how the Small Talk topic is supposed to work, so here's a refresher:

The Small Talk topic is for:

  • Introductions
  • Off-topic chatter
  • Having virtual tea with forum buddies

This is NOT a topic for actual show discussion. When you want to talk about the show:

  • Figure out the nature of the topic you want to talk about
  • Look for an existing topic that matches or fits

Examples of topics that populate show forums include (but by no means are limited to):

  • Contestant topics
  • Spoiler topics
  • Past season topics
  • Speculation topics
  • In the Media topics
  • Favorite X topics

...you get the idea

Happy trails beyond Small Talk!

I decided on a miniature poodle for several reasons.   I show in obedience, barn hunt, do a tiny bit of agility (tiny bit) and my havanese isn't really fond of strangers.  Judges have to touch dogs, and she really does not enjoy this.  Poodles have lots of drive and generally enjoy people.  I have had very big dogs (borzoi and german shepherd) and loved moving to a toy dog.  Loading and unloading that huge crate is no fun at shows.  So I didn't want anything too big, although I love sighthounds.  Plus I can do dock diving with a poodle.  Dogs are great fun.  Plus most of the time they are more fun than people!  She will be silver in color.

Hi I’m looking for some industry advice! There is a sports team in my city in Texas (not Dallas) that is considering adding a dance team. It’s a pro development league so i believe similar to Texas legends, Allen Americans, Dallas sidekicks, etc type of level. Does anyone know how much dancers on these types of teams usually make? And/or how much the dance director/coach would typically make? I’m anticipating potential budget questions from the front office. I know it’s quite low for major league dancers like DCC so I’m wondering if it’s similar or even substantially lower for minor league teams.

I never heard of a silver Poodle.  Sounds super cute! 😍

This is one amazingly talented dancer.

Blake McGrath sings too.  He's extremely talented.  Watch for cameos of Brian Friedman and Wade Robson (two of Blake's idols).

Sorry for my delayed response since I'm the one that asked all the questions! I was doing a 2-day relay trail run in the middle of the mountains where WiFi was nonexistent and cell service was fleeting at best. Now I'm home, showered, rested, and eager to catch up. 😊 

Your Havanese and my Lhasa Apso are kindred spirits. Mine was born to show dog parents, but he was deemed non-show quality, which is how he ended up my little guy 😊. He is waaay bigger than standard and has a bit of a leg deformity.  But he retained 3 things from his show dog genetics: his prance, his luxurious coat, and his complete distrust of strangers. Everyone is under suspicion! But he is so chill, he was a dream to train as a puppy. He is old now though, almost completely deaf and going blind 😞. It is hard to think of getting another dog when he passes since he was so relaxed and easy. 

Congrats on your new one!! Dogs really are the best!!

Thank you so much!!   One of the ladies in our dog club has the top winning Lhasa from last year.  He is just gorgeous.   I keep Elke in full coat which is so very interesting when you live on a farm with leaves and dirt everywhere!  The lady I am getting the poodle from said Elke is a "thinking" dog.  Well heck she sure is.  I have to choose what trials I enter because of certain judges.  But I love the Llasa too.

To whomever said the "Mr. Grumpy Pants" remark.

I am having more fun with this.  Had to get hubby up at 7 a.m. (poor thing).  His a/c has gone out on his truck so he has to use my car to go to town.  I told him yesterday he had to be back by 1 p.m. so I could go to dog training.

So this morning I took his coffee to the bed and said Time to get up  Mr. Grumpy Pants!  Cause he is grumpy about 75% of the time.

This is random but how coincidental is it that my Alexa device would start playing "Loud" (Big & Rich) while I'm surfing this forum??

I know she's a wonderful dancer, and it's always fun to see what these gals can really do, especially at a young age.

Very random. This is an ad that's currently doing the rounds on Aussie TV featuring the song 'fireball'.  I keep waiting for DCC to pop out from behind the tacos
 

We have this ad in the UK and I always seem to start the dance!

Wow that was great.   If you haven't seen the movie Billy Elliot, it is worth watching.  I also saw it on Broadway a few years ago and loved it.

Ok, that's the title!  I was thinking of it when I heard about all of this, but couldn't remember the name right off.  I was also thinking that the DWTS cast just appeared on GMA to promote the upcoming season.  She's never been a fave of mine anyway.

My friend was one of the original Billy’s in the West End production and now is with a contemporary ballet company. His talent was always above and beyond our dance school!
