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

What if they're not in line.  Roll Eyes

I am sure there are plenty of steps that would have a different name on your side of the word to us. I have heard of a couple when I think of them (tired now) I will write them down

do you have routines that you do on the floor or do you make up the steps as you go along. I have heard from a competitor that when he competed he did not learn routines and only learnt steps and then went out and used the floor and steps that could fit. People use to compliment him on his floor craft.

I think most people do have routines, but they know how to change the routine on the spot if required.

I think thats the best ballance.  A routine can let you showcase difficult sequences or even easy ones that you are particularly good at as a couple.  But you have to have the ability to change on a dime!  Else you spend a lot of time standing still on the floor or, worse, extracating yourself from collisions
