yes you must get warned. but then your coach should know the syllabus and not put those steps in the routine. When we started our coach checked the book and worked out a routine from that.

it's been so long since ours have competed that they don't really know. So I'll take the list from here to them.

Yes, generally there is no problems at competitions due to this reason...

Just to clarify..

There are no syllabus restrictions on medal routines other than those imposed by an organiser.

Might I add, as an adjudicator I do not look favourably on medallist doing non-syllabus figures. I can guarantee you that they won't be done well and bad dancing doesn't do much for me.

I do not want to see scatter chasses. I do not want to see throw-away over sways. I do not want to see eros lines, double aerials, developes.

I have never seen a medallist comp do them well. In fact I rarely see a level 3 couple do them well.

If you can't dance your syllabus figures well and win, you really need to question the advice you're getting.

Thanks for that.

We're keeping our routines very simple at the moment, because the advanced figures are definitely beyond our capabilities at the moment.

I think AH's advice is good, no matter where you live.  Much better to dance the figures you can dance well than to "stretch" yourself and look a fool.
