OK so you have a picture (hopefullly one you are not TOO fond of Wink) and you think you did a good job.  Post it here and get some feedback from our resident mavens on your performance and what you might improve.  And everyone else, sure be kind but constructive critisism (faults) is OK on this topic.

Just to show I'm brave I'll go first in the next post Smiley

I think it looks lovely, not sure what the professionals would say. I would be keen to hear their advice.

We're getting that with our contracheck...everytime we get into it and hold it for a while we start to shake. It's getting more natural though.

For us the key was when DP learned to lower through the knee before any forward action.  The seequence is: stabilize, lower then advance the leg but not the body, while rotating.  Its almost like you are trying not to go forward.  The whole thing is mostly illusion and usually goes wrong when you try to actually move the body the way it looks...

Yep, that's our main problem too. The other main one is attempting to put the body in positions it has not been before.

Hi... There is quite a lot that can be done to improve the balance and comfort of this line.

Firstly both parties are pulling back, not shaping forward and leftwards. The man's head weight is certainly not over his left foot as it should be. The lady's lower back is taking most of her 'fall' strain, not balanced out with the feet. This is emphasised by what appears to be the lady hangingin on with her right hand and fingers.

it would appear that a promenade style shape was not passed through in achieving the final position.

Hey, thanks AH!  The (pro) man in question is currently ~28th in the world.. thus the lady is probably pulling him off ballance Smiley

I like your ID tags for the shape very much, they resonate with what we are currently doing (but now with my amateur partner, not this pro).

I don't wish to come across as if I'm just pontificating from some far away place. Just putting my two cents worth in..  Grin
