    5 moves??? I thought the idea was to make things simpler and more accessible. Is this correct? If so it erodes one of the main competitive advatages Ceroc has.

    Occasionally. It should be noted however, that where there are 5 moves, this includes the 'in and out'. Which isn't really a move.

    Beginners can always ignore style tips and guy spins if they want to, so that's just a matter of good presentation.

    Re: Does Line Dancing kick MJ Butt?

    Hi my name is Yvonne Dunn and I am the owner of Headliners, Upton, Wirral.
    I am Jodie’s coach and the choreographer of Jodie & Danny’s Breathe routine on SDF and also the coach of James & Claire and until recently trained Eddie for over 2 years.
    I am also a UCWDC certified world championship judge.

    I just wanted to help people understand modern linedancing as there seems to be
    some misunderstanding. Competitive C&W dancing includes couples and
    linedancing. Linedancing involves classic division (pre-set dances performed
    In lines) and showcase division (pre-released music freedom of choreography and not performed in lines).

    The couples section comprises 8 dances triple two step, polka, night club, cha, two step, waltz, east coast (like jive) and west coast swing (as performed by current DIV II world
    Champions James & Claire) PS Claire is a spinning diva but this speed
    would not be possible without the exception connection that James provides. The lead/connection is subtle but there for any expect to see and it was nice to see Brendan recognising this in his interview. I think it is important for couples experienced judges to be on a programme that is going to rely on couples driven categories.

    As you can see you need to be very diverse as it incorporates all styles of dance and
    Jodie & Danny’s routine was part showcase line and part night club two step).
    Modern C&W dance rules now allow 50% of non country music although Breathe is
    actually a C&W song performed by Faith Hill who is a modern country artist like Shania Twain etc. The C&W competitive scene is made up of mainly under 18’s and is actually a very cool thing to do for those in the know and at top level requires very diverse skills which is why Jodie/Danny & James/Claire should do really well across the different styles.

    Please do not confuse social linedance with competitive as it is like comparing Torvill & Dean’s icedances to what you see at your local ice rink on a Saturday!

    PS Both SDF couples will be attending our event in Blackpool 24th –26th June 2005 (see www.headliners.or.uk) for more info so why not come along and see some of the worlds top C&W dancers compete.

    Hope this helps.
