I decided not to enter into any more WSDC J&J (Jack & Jill) competitions. (I will still do All-American J&J's where they're offered.) I'm glad I made that decision. I've been to two dance events since then, and just watched the competitions when I was able. Not competing allowed me to take in everything that was happening, and focus in on some issues that turn out to be on many people's minds. I've written a number of things about this on FB, and time permitting, I'll write about them here as well.
