General Technique

Post  stevepny on Tue Aug 17, 2010 2:57 am

I think there should be a 'general technique' section for both standard and latin and have subsections such as "Movement", "Timing", "Musicality", "Connection", "Character", and more as the ideas arise. I see you already have a 'general' subsection of each ballroom and latin, but I think these concepts could end up containing more information than the individual dance subsections and it might be better to organize the sections to have a 'general technique' section at the highest level rather than a subcategory.

What do you think of splitting it to:

General technique:
-Standard
--Technical categories (musicality, characters, etc.)
-Latin
--Technical categories (similar)

Questions
-Standard
--Standard Dances
-Latin
--Latin Dances

to split up "technical discussions" and "questions"

I'd rather not see it split up by style. A lot of the technique between standard and latin is very similar in these broader categories. If people want to be specific about standard or latin, then they can mention that in their post. But I think hearing about 'musicality' from any style dancer (even outside of ballroom) is worthwhile. Otherwise I think there would be a lot of repetition, or people missing out on good discussion because they only check the style in which they are interested.

so e.g.
General technique:
-Technical categories (musicality, characters, etc.)

I don't know about the need for a 'questions' category. Isn't that the point of the whole forum? What kind of questions did you have in mind? I agree technical questions and miscellaneous questions shouldn't be together.

I guess I was trying to split up the difference between a technical discussion of something and a question. I would classify the current foxtrot post as a technical discussion, as opposed to someone asking a specific question about a particular step/concept. I'll see what I can do to clarify any differences.

I now see what you're saying. Total misinterpretation on my part

Can you add a section "History" to Ballroom - General Topics?

I'd like a place to put information about the history and development of ballroom dancing.
