still what we need to improve this year is being able to stop and and then resume the routine without looking flustered (not that we do that all the time) but just pick up and move somewhere else without effort
we are working on this too - coach noticed that we were inclined to make gestures when we made an error - effectively drawing the judges attention. That we have to fix because if you look carefully most of the other dancers are making mistakes all the time, they just don't show it.
We have a saying that "the only difference between a mistake and a new variation is the look on your face"
I suppose the look has to match the gravity of the mistake - perky wink for a misstep - and body language corresponding to 'winning a boxing fight by knockout' for a real head-over-heels whipeout...
