Ironically the Tracie Leigh Waltz is danced at Level 2, 3 and 4.

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.
agreed
on another note; any idea what lies behind the decision to have swing waltz and la bomba at the entree level? I think it is discouraging new competitors

Interesting this comment. I have not done the Parlmz Waltz but am going to see it otnight done for a medal. I dont like the look of it.....Tracey Leigh I agree is a much easier dance than the others perhaps it should be a lower level entry dance, we had to start with the swing waltz. and the Charmaine, yes well it is not the best one. it has an old time feel about it...

Charmaine makes me feel a little bit like a horse - because of those bits where you lift your leg up.

I enjoy twilight and lucillle, more than swing. TLW is what we have to do at the Aussies and Charmaine have to say they are not my favorites.

La Bomba I love but cant do very well will practice it this afternoon  Roll Eyes
