i was just at my first competition of the year and we did really well we got special awards and overalls and stuff. then the next day in class we were listening to the tapes of corrections and our score was less then a point away from a platinum i was so mad!

has this ever happened to you when you were just so close to something?

Ha! That's happened to my kids (students) more than once. I look at the score sheets and wonder what crawled up judge C's backside and they were judging so low and had they judged like the other two it would have been a platinum. /headdesk But that's why I tell my kids it's a learning experience and how it's all subjective.

We were going over our sheets last week and every single dance my one teacher choreographed got an 84. What the hell, judges?!

It's happened a few times. But we also had a platinum that was only like half a point away from a gold. We thought the piece was a disaster. But it really sucks when one judge is clearly more critical than the others without any explanation.

That happened with both of my solos at this years first competition. Empty chairs was .4 away and Let Me Fall was 1.2. I was really irritated at Judge 1. He/she scored me lower than the others, but hey that's life.

Today we were going over our scores from a competition on Saturday and we realized that we were only .6 away from platinium! We were like AHH!! but still, that's the best we've ever done so I was still happy.

Yeah we had this too. We were like really close, I think it was like .90 something away :/
But hey, whatever.
We still did amazing.

AND we went to two different competitions, and our received a high gold for each, but point values were WAY different. Anyways, the dance we did at the second competition where point values were higher and ranges were smaller would've been a platinum plus performance at the previous competition :/
