I find the same with some of the dances, that after doing them for the night there are plenty of aches and pains the next day, I just assume I am doing them properly and that it is hurting in the right places....as long as it is not the back or neck....

Yes we are currently working on la bomba...I find the wheel the hardest thing. when we do it slowly its fine but under speed it is not working as well, but we are on the right track...once we have the feet going well will put in the arms.

i'm finding the ending the hardest, with the oversway, lunge and spanish hesitation its quite a handful (hope i used the correct terminology for each step)

Favourite:    Barclay B. La Bomba, Tango T. and Swing W
Least favourite: Tangoette, Merrilyn, Gypsy Tap, Evening 3 S

Man they could try to enter some of the latin style NV dances in the comps. now that would be challenging

Yes perhaps we should write to the organision to suggest it. Not sure if they would listen but if they have a ten dance in Standard why not in New Vogue?

I'd like to see that. Some of them would be quite fun to do, especially the Rumbas.

With the La Bomba, I also have trouble with the wheel and the ending. The ending because we learnt it wrong in the first plave, the wheel for the same reason as well as it just being annoying.

One suggestion I have for you is "Get Lower!" A lot lower!

Aw La Bomba is a lot of fun. Challenging dance, but plenty of room for creativity!

very nice indeed waltzelf! i particulary like the spanish drag - the start and the hesitation (i suppose that's what i would call it) between the first and second left foot closes

Without question, Parma Waltz, Tracey Leigh Waltz and Charmaine must go.

Parma Waltz is rarely if ever used and also uses the correct ballroom footwork in the lock steps, which is inconsistent with the remaining championship dances. Also, the four viennese waltz ending is to difficult to make look attractive a lower level.

Tracey Leigh hardly presents a challenge to anyone. There is nothing in this dance that cannot be achieved in another dance. Except perhaps for the Taps. Tra La La.

Charmaine is just a badly choreographed dance in the first place. Parts of it are nice, but the second half is completely out of phrase. It is embarassing that an out of phrase dance is even used at championship level.
