    I'm really interested to see how the "creative steps" key points work out next season.

    As some people observed on the thread last month about this, having fewer lifts may actually make dance less interesting.

    Well, it is not that long since they added the choreographic lift. This is just returning to the previous situation, but with less points for the last lift.

    I was longing for the day when they finally say that the required pattern / short dance style will be hip-hop so we could all watch B/S, C/L and I/K get down to Jay-Z/Beyonce duets and old Public Enemy records, but alas. Could you imagine?? :P

    Hip-hop was one of the junior dance options in the 2012-2013 season. Several Wheaton Academy teams used it: you can find them on the ISU junior grand prix YouTube channel. McNamara &Carpenter's Zombies among them

    The last time we had the Paso Doble, it was used as a CD for both juniors and seniors in the 2008-2009 season. It has not been part of a short dance yet.

    It was in the L.A. worlds, right? I would prefer something totally new.. i remember an overuse of waltz, tango, flamenco, polka et similia. Who can list the rhythms used in last 10 years please? It would be interesting to see

    As to what the ISU says Spanish Dances Rhythms are, they were just updated:

    http://www.isu.org/en/single-and-pai...dances-rhythms
    Direct link to the PDF document:
    http://static.isu.org/media/142737/s...es-rhythms.pdf

    Examples of Spanish Dances: 
    Jota – The fast tempo Jota originally hails from Aragon but is popular – with minor modifications – throughout the rest of Spain. With probable Moorish influences, the Jota is typically danced in two's as couples raise their hands above their heads playing castanets.
     Fandango – Until Flamenco came along, the Fandango was Spain's most famous dance. Lively, energetic and happy, it's a traditional Spanish Dance performed in couples.
     Flamenco – Flamenco is a passionate form of music and dance combining Jewish, Moorish and Andalucian influences.
     Paso Doble – The Paso Doble is a quick and lively one-step traditional Spanish dance.
     Bolero – a fast and spirited dance, the Bolero – featuring unexpected pauses and sharp turns – is one of the oldest and most traditional Spanish Dances.
     Sevillanas – Sevillanas are, in many ways, reminiscent of Flamenco. Joyful and undeniably happy, a Sevillana is a four-part music with an accompanying four-part dance

    so tell me if I'm getting wrong, but it's impossible to see (for example) Fandango selected as a Rhythm since they'll always use a generic and various Spanish Dance, right?

    no.. noob question since Paso Doble is also listed there sorry


    so they want the Paso Doble pattern dance played with one of the Spanish Rhythm listed above
