Hey thanks for your honesty! I know names aren't mentioned, but it sounds like a reference to the recent Blitz competition and Alamo placing 2nd- just putting it out here to not be hazy! Not debating anything about judges here; the judges were selected by the committee and judged per their interpretation and that's what judges do. Regarding the comment on Alamo, I've danced with Alamo three years back at MCB and Clutch as well as on DDR in the past, and I understand how Alamo can come across being on a high-horse. But honestly, the team doesn't go to Blitz to get an "easy win"; historically, Blitz was run amazingly and that's why we've always loved to go to this Texas comp as a Texas team.Great discussion in my honest opinion. But calling out one person on the basis of a placing is not right. One particular person on this forum is just calling out Amrita because she is salty that her team didn't win or placed second. Amrita in my opinion is more than well qualified for judging based on her character, and her response to this post it's clear she is the real deal. I say instead of bashing one person why don't you all go clean up your formations and bring an actual set that's not boring someone to death at a comp. It's not Amrita's fault you took the set lightly thinking it was gonna place first. Rmr its not always automatic at these lower level comps. Anyways no harsh feelings to anyone. Just my particular opinion on this matter.
Just this year, there was a huge discrepancy in how it was run. Sure, Blitz may not be at the same "tier" as larger comps, but we didn't take this comp any less seriously bc we "expected" to win. Ampal, Deshmesh, the whole team truly put in the time and effort for this, and it's a bit unfair to drag down the hard work any team's put into preparing for a competition. No matter the comp, be it MCB level or Burgh level or "lower level" (? as you describe it?), Alamo puts in work. I've seen them take exhibition acts, the annual city-wide Diwali performance, even our friends' wedding performances just as seriously! Appreciate you voicing thoughts that many others may be having, and I really never post things, but just wanted to share a bit of what I've seen and what I saw.
