I’d like to thank TL & Chris Rader (@DanceWithTLC) for taking the time to provide Twitter coverage from La Classique du Quebec. It looks like it was a phenomenal event. I loved watching the updates as they came in. It’s too bad the mobile coverage was so spotty in the ballroom, otherwise we might have gotten even more!
I particularly love the commentary about men’s and women’s grooming trends. I’m so relieved to hear about the “short loose hair” trend for women. When I competed, I disliked pasting back my hair. I’ve always though that hair with movement was sexier and complimented the dancing better.

In 2009, TL Rader provided this wonderful Backstage video, posted on YouTube. I hope she provides one this year too! We should get coverage of the competitions like this more often!
