    Sounds interesting and mysterious.

    Flamenco - isnt Latin dance and tango is a part of Europian program in ballroom dancing.
    I cant understand - why USA and Canada poster think, that Flamenco and tango are Latin dances?

    If you prefer, we could call them Hispanic-inspired dances or dances from Spanish or Portuguese-speaking countries.

    Because people think they are closer in movement to a latin dance than let's say a waltz... nothing major it's just a different type of thinking.

    How would you group these dances btw ?


    ...sometime ago someone told me there was no such thing as an Argentinian Tango. lol

    I thought Tango was Argentinian having roots in street dance. But many dances borrow from other cultures so what do I know.

    That's what I thought too, actually I remember hearing that at first it was a dance between two men. I'm sticking to my guns and say the Tango is latin no matter what .

    I see no reason for the skating classifications to match the International standard or American standard classifications of dance in dancesport.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_dance

    When the ISU had a Latin/Spanish combination in 1999/2000, it included Merengue, Cha Cha, Samba, Mambo, Rumba

    And when they had another Latin/Spanish combination in 2001/2002 it was Tango, Flamenco, Paso Doble and Spanish Waltz

    So all these groupings are quite arbitrary.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballroom_dance#Dances

    Check out the differences between International and American groupings. Scroll to the chart at the bottom of the above link.

    The internationals think Jive is Latin

    The American's think a tango should be smooth (a trap that affected Wilson & McCall in the OSP in 1988).

    Furthermore, in dancesport, Argentine tango is listed as "Other", not in the same category "American Smooth" as tango, and flamenco is unlisted entirely!


    Clearly, we need to create an "Igor's Hispanic Favs" grouping, & it would certainly include tango & Flamenco.

    I LOVED the FD Davis and White did to this music a few years ago. It is by far my favorite program of theirs. Can't wait to see what C&P do with it.

    Nothing. I for one am looking forward to it. Who's the last dance team who used Don Quixote anyway?

    It's overused music. That's probably what the complaint is about. But, the skaters took a bit of a break from it during the last quad, so I'm not as sick of it as I once was. I mean, the last programs to Don Quixote that I even remember are Hughes and Slutskaya.
