Thanks, Steve! I'm glad you enjoy the material and find it helpful.

FYI, we're currently working on a revamp of the Learn the Dances section, to include greater technical detail in the man's and lady's charts, a slicker look and smoother navigation. The video is rendered with HTML5 instead of Flash, so people should have a much easier time with it, especially on iPhones and iPads.

If you want to take a sneak peek, here's a link:
http://new.ballroomdancers.com/Dances/syllabus.asp?dance=afx

A couple of caveats:

-- I've tested the video, but I've currently disabled the auto-play because it's a pain for me when I'm working on other parts of the page and constantly reloading it. If you want to see a video, you'll have to manually click one of the thumbnails on the video list (at least for now).

-- The link I gave you is to American Foxtrot. I know you're into the Int'l style, but I haven't done very much data entry for the Int'l dances yet. American smooth, especially bronze, will give you a much better showing of the filled-in charts with all the extra technical details.

-- Some links don't work yet, including the global drop-down menu. Feel free to click on anything, but don't be surprised if you hit a link that does nothing. The page is still a work in progress. Needless to say, I won't be making this page public until it's complete.

-- All of the tabs work (overview, man's part, lady's part, precedes & follows) except the discussion tab. I'm on that one now.

Take a look and let me know if you like where it's going. Once I'm done with this, I'll be doing a complete overhaul of the mobile web app, which will then also include the same level of detail.
