Honestly guys don't ever let anything before majors (or even local feis) come between you. If you can push through it, do it I promise it's worth it! I'm at the point with dancing where I am literally in the studio 7 days a week for at least 3 hours and I come home trenched in sweat and blisters. This nationals was a long time coming for me. I recalled my first nationals at 7, didn't recall for 6 YEARS after, missed one year because of my surgery, came back got 24th, last year got 15th and this year.. 3rd! Two weeks ago I was at a point where I didn't even know if I could do nationals because my groin is pulled, I have a bone sticking out on my foot and my toe is broken. Somehow you push through everything if you love it this much and it definately pays off!!

On top of the moon still :)
