I have reserected this topic as I feel now that we are in the top level this is even more important and strategies needs to be put in place.

We recently practised on a floor with lots of couples and quite enjoyed the fact that we had to avoid them and keep moving....sometimes training on a floor by yourself is not always the best thing. what other techniques ave been used for you to help you to be more confident on the floor

the obvious one is to learn multiple exits for each sequence.  First for the key points - at the corners and along the short side. Come to think of it (maybe we talked about this before) I suppose NV doesn't really have floorcraft...

less of an issue with the NV.. except if you have a couple with short legs....then you go on the inside to move past them.

it is more of an issue in Standard.

I'll say!  And the scariest stage is pre-championship where all the couples have got as far as having partially learned intricate routines but not so far as to how to maneuver them Shocked

Amen to that Elise.  They quite literally know just enough to be dangerous.
