    It's ok to voice your opinion, it's just how it's communicated ;) (and if your coach is willing to listen).

    Well, lima beans aren't going to kill me either, but that doesn't mean I have to eat them. And if they're on the list of what comes with my filet, I'll ask for a substitution, thank you very much! :argue:

    you know the old saying, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade! and in this case, it's not much of an effort. *grin*

    Yes, corta jacas are much more fun in shadow position. And I love voltas...pretty much everything in samba. Chicken walks in jive got better for me after the fabulous Kristina Staykova showed me they should be all about T&A. However, much of the rest of the jive syllabus, ugh. And ditto for a lot of paso syllabus.

    paso syllabus is pretty awful; and I do agree, if I have to do corta jacas, shadow position is it for me.

    As I am not good at them, they are my least favorite, but I am sure that once I get them under the belt they would be fun, we have them in a samba routine and when DP & I do them they look stilted.

    But on the professional front, If my instructor thinks I could handle the steps then I will do them whether they are a favorite or not, as the whole point (to me) is to be challenged.
