Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

As I have not done them all in all dance styles not sure which is the most swishiest.....Slip Pivot to double reverse spin  is pretty technical and I enjoy the challenge

I am not sure of step names.

But anything that takes me away while dancing. Especially if in the "mood!"  Cool

How about hairpins?  In VW especially.

True story: nearly 2 years ago, I was working on a VW showcase with my then-pro.  Well, our choreographer thought it would be fun to put a couple hairpins in there for me, the bronze-level student, to kill myself over.  Even my pro hated them.  They're just plain scary!

Then, the day before the showcase, as we were in some last-minute discussions, Ben Ermis came over to us and said, "I just wanted to tell you that the routine looks great--Shalene and I even had to take the hairpins out of our routine because WE couldn't do them right!"

That made me feel pretty good...

Yeah...I agree there. I can sort of visualise it, but if I haven't actually done the step, I have no hope.
