Unless I am totally mis-remembering, which is entirely possible, my pro and his partner have been using it for bolero...

Eh...I guess you could, but unless you have DJ software that can tweak the tempo a little it would sound too much like rumba/bolero to me. (Thinking on it there are an awful lot of rumba and/or bolero Bond themes....Diamonds are Forever, Moonraker, GoldenEye, Nobody Does It Better, License to Kill, You Only Live Twice, We Have All The Time in the World, All Time High, Tomorrow Never, you want a challenge to do a 'serious' Bond showcase to a very dubious theme, how about is The Man With the Golden Gun a QS or ECS?)

The tempo is hitting at about 17.5 beats per measure which is slow even for a Rumba. As a Rumba I would classify it as "very slow for practice".

Slow Foxes by comparison are best at 28-29 beats per measure...26 or 27 can be gorgeous but I know from experience one would feel even that tempo in one's body if technique & ability to stay relaxed is still...evolving.

You might want to try speeding up the Skyfall tempo digitally and seeing how that feels. It's certainly a moving song whose spirit I would love for a Fox.

I vote yes. If doing FT to a more-like-Bolero rhythm is good enough for William Pino, it's good enough for you.
By comparison, that's a solid Rumba tempo at around 24.5 beats per measure. Gorgeous.

My concern with a 17-ish BPM is that it might look like the couple's stuck in mud while trying make it work for a Fox. It would challenge even a Pino, I'm sure. :)
