    Samuel Johnson put it best when he said, "When a man is tired of the Finnstep, he is tired of life."

    Glad it's not the tango! Glad they chose this challenging pattern for the Olympic season.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    What's the off-the-wall music that works for Quickstep?

    Yippee, I love the quickstep!!
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    You can always use a 4/4 Waltz music and pretend it's a Foxtrot

    I look foward to seeing this. Although hopefully we will get to see some good choices of music. I think skaters have started heading a bit more out of the box in their selections this season. Also I don't mind having both Senior and Junior doing the same themes.

    Let's see how many couples do the choctaw in the quickstep correctly.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Is it shallow to think about all the "interesting" costumes that we'll see?

    One Not Touching Midline Step Sequence or Not Touching Diagonal Step Sequence or Not Touching Circular Step Sequence

    Is that completely new? Obviously I've seen both of the other choices, but I don't recall diagonal being an option before.

    No, no, no. Unless they totally change the tempo. But never fear, I'm sure there'll be some awesome horrible earworms that will dominate.

    Americans, Brits, French, Russians, I don't care; that would be really fun.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
