DSV posted this on the social dancing board:

"One of my teachers used to say that to become a great dancer, you need to be a great social dancer with a great top line and a great presentation."

This strikes a note that is, I think, critically important for competition dancing - getting that 'at ease' look on the floor but its not something that we seem to discuss.   Obviously to be at ease you have to be comfortable dancing with each other but maybe there are tricks to it.

Also, comments on how important being 'at ease' is for the judges?

I would say it comes with an attitude of "couldnt give a F***"

"fig"

And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And every one cried, `You'll all be drowned!'
They called aloud, `Our Sieve ain't big,
But we don't care a button! we don't care a fig!
In a Sieve we'll go to sea!'

oR

They danced AT all round and round
And every one cried "You'' both be frowned
They called aloud 'Our Steps aint big
But we don't care a button! we don't care a fig!
But still we'll dance A.T."

 Huh

execute as in doing the steps. does that make sense now?

Ah. In that case, BTM might be closer than one believes. The answer, IMHO, is focusing more on movement than steps (currently in another thread).

There has been much talk of this, but I believe the one referenced here is in the Quantum Leap thread.   Undecided
