SW - I could dance that with you...
Are you looking for a partner?
We're a good height match - well, if I danced on my knees perhaps... Grin

Our new waltz routine so far is: starting in the right corner, pret step, half natural, over turned spin turn to face the left corner, running chasse, left step forward then 2 natural pivots, back running chasse to promenade, 2 steps forward on counts 1 & then side step and foot behind (not sure of the name of this sequence), step forward on right then lock, fallaway slip pivot, viennese cross, hover corte for 6 counts, same foot lunge with weave ending.

That's it so far, its quite nice when its done well Roll Eyes

Do you not think that the pattern would look a bit silly if you danced it to this piece of musc?

Or this

Both are Waltz in 3/4 time. . . . . . .

Yes it would, because firstly their both 6/8 timing which is Viennese waltz and not modern waltz and secondly that both those pieces do not follow a strict metronome beat, or anything close to a strict beat for that matter. So, yes dancing a modern waltz to a Viennese track with no strict metronome timing in sight would look a bit silly...

Sounds neat - we've been trying to figure out what to do after a lock-chasse (it sort of stops) - perhaps we could do a FASP out as you are...

The FASP does open up a lot of opportunities to go into many different lines ect.

have a go!  Its the best way to learn too.
I think its more often that the guy knows the names better since he has to lead them - but I'm sure its not always like that (er, I can do most of it but not all I think - yes, I should try to write them out too..)

I'm sure I couldn't hold a feather to that Tongue Smiley

I think we call a 'three in line' a 'three step'... must be the same thing
