Thanks Doris. I will pay closer attention to that whole sequence. I'm also wondering about the first steps. There seems to be a wide latitude of ability there- as well as timing. Is that first step an indication of ability or just a matter of interpretation?

No one in that group had wonderful timing - at least not to my count. On the other hand, when I really counted all the Olympic couples in 2002, I only found one that was really on the beat.
