    Sorry to ask this: I haven't been following dance all that much this year.

    What was the "CD" in the short dance this year. A waltz?

    If so, I'm totally lost as to how that fits into a samba or latin dance. Thanks in advance for any explanation!

    Oh, okay thanks. (Now I feel dumb. :lol:) I guess I wasn't noticing it as a rhumba. Did some of the teams have a problem fitting the beats or the timing to whatever music they selected? I wasn't sure...

    There are certain key points that the couple have to achieve during the CD part of the dance to get the levels. Check out ISU Communicaton 1621 which list those for junior and senior short dances. You can find the communication by scrolling down here.
