I was watching the Blackpool competition the other day and the commentator was talking about this.
His comment was "They dance very well, but I don't see the freedom of body that much."

What is this exactly? I can't explain in a word, but I think I sometimes feel some sort of freedom of body.
The moment I feel this( Don't know actually it is indeed the moment.), I feel up in the air.

Do you feel this?

Was this in regards to latin?  I would guess he/she was referrring to fluidity in body movements.  Many dancers have great limbs but really great latin goes through the whole body - I usually look for back action when comparing latin dancers.

I believe what this means is what I posted in the other thread... Putting movement before the dance...

The most beautiful part of the dance is often found in between the steps... and in the movement within the stillness.
