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!!
