Having now attend several interational events I can see a clear divide coming through in the style of dancing.

the WDSFstyle (as I called it) is coming across inb all styles and is particuallry noticable in Tango and also Foxtrot and of course in VW

shaping in the Tango is quite severe and in many cases without the man the women would not be albe to hold themselves.

I have the foxtrot to consist of lots of quicks and very few slows.

I need to go to bed now but I will eleborate more on this topic.

sorry to leave it half done

How very interesting - this sounds like 'speciation' in nature where natural selection results in the rapid development of differences between any two species that are closely related.

If this can be verified, I suppose its intentional - in which case the judges must have been instructed as to which style of dancing is to be favoured.

Reminds me of the chain studio - competition world...

further to this remark, what we saw was an over dramtic shapeing occruing across all styles, the fotxtro had more quicks and then long pausces in picture lines. The dancing did not look restful or easy to watch. Where as the style in england at Blackpool was with the neat lines not overshaped and more restful to watch. there was shaping but not sharp.

You can definately see clear disinictions in the dancing. If I can upload one of the videos we took from Paris and we compare it against another, I think you would see the differences.

why they are doing that I dont know, but you either love it or hate it and make a choice which path you are going to go down. I dont think you can do both.

I will find some clips and put it in this thread
