I just wondered if they should introduce new dances into new vogue? some of the dancers are quite old, not that I don't like them. But I would like to see perhaps some Latin dancers be entered into the mix. What do you think. If you think it is good how would you go about it getting considered.

Perhaps we should start to list some and then make a poll out of it. I think that the Nicky Cha cha cha is a good one. Sally Ann. there are others that I have not done. But which ever they choose it should defiantly have modern steps, not to many chair movements in it.

On the Rumba front, Rumba D'amor, rumba forever, Queen of hearts

I don't that many in Jives other that Jimpy Jive....which I have not done

Samba.well I only know social and I did know the Katrina once...

Paso we.ll.that is difficult because the only one they do this way is Madrid, but I do believe their is a medina Passo which looks quite good.

Yes I did as well...waiting to see what they want to list.... I tried to e-mail some of the people on the grop but it considered I was spamming.. so I had to stop... I will send some more invitations another time ;-)

Thanks for the heads up.

The D'mour would be really good to do comp-style...you could play with soooo much stuff there.

Jive-wise, that's the only one I know as well, and it has some potential, but the steps themselves are very basic.

Cha Cha: Personally I have a favourite - the El Tel. It's fairly new around here, but it's fun to do. It's sort of like a more advanced Sally-ann. The nikki is good but I don't like it because I have to go backwards :S

The New Vogue quickstep would be fun to do.

Next time we have a ball I will make a list of the ones that would be interesting. I can't remember a lot of them right now.

I'd like to see some waltz waltzes in there (as opposed to Viennese). Engagement; perhaps Woodside. The problem with them is that they aren't so easy to play with.

So... when we have Latin New Vogue dances, are the couples going to be given time to change back and forth between ballroom and latin costumes, or are we going to have couples look really stupid trying to doing a New Vogue jive in a beautiful ballroom gown?

Or are we going to have two separate New Vogue events - one for standard, and one for latin? ... and have competitions finish even later than the already unreasonably late hour they finish at the moment?


No, I don't think there should be latin New Vogue dances. In fact, I have enough difficulty trying to master the current set. There's 15, after all.

It should be done like the standard style if they are going to have it. a separate section, where you change...you do not do latin in a ball gown. Even though they may be 15 dances you don't do them all in one year? Or is that incorrect?

See my problem with that is this. There are three styles of dance currently - Standard, Latin, Standard New Vogue. Competitions finish as late as 10 PM when they start at 9 AM. Starting earlier is out of the question, so who really wants to be at a comp until 1-2 AM just so we can also have Latin New Vogue?


We could possibly get rid of a few of the NV dances and bring some new ones in but no, no NV Latin please.

Well we would never consider doing Latin, it is a young persons thing. NV Latin could be for another group no-one says that everyone has to learn it, we all choose what we will specialise in.

some find tht they sit there all day we big gaps during the performance times...Its about choice..

I think it is always good to review what is done to keep it up-to-date. I find that some organisations dont like change. It is good to discuss the different views
