Hi Everyone, I just read this thread, very interesting! A few of my own comments: A technique book is a good thing in the right hands. It is not written in stone, and different technique books can say different things. Also, it's open to interpretation. I took vcalvin's comment of being a competitor but not having done a corta jaca as a humble statement, and 'dance boy' probably did too. Should we talk about the difference between American style and International style Samba? I didn't see mentioned which version the original question was about. Either way, Samba sure is a fun dance, isn't it? I watched people dancing it in Montreal last weekend, I was breathless at the end!
