    Having a hard time counting music.

    Actually, I think it's one of those songs with a signature change (or changes). It does sound like 6/8 for most of it. But there's definitely a section at 3:08 that's 4/4. This is the full Secret Garden track, of course, not the snippet posted earlier.

    Or just a lot of dirt that's been picked up.

    exposing too much when dancing

    :rofl: To be fair, I believe it was modified from its original form in one of the various server or forum software upgrades and some of it got cut off.

    exposing too much when dancing

    Considering how...stiff...rhinestoned garments can get, the chafing must be something fierce.

    How you know you're ready to start competing at the next level?

    Well, to be fair, it also depends how much competition you have. Placing 1-2 out of 24 couples isn't the same as placing 1-2 out of 3 couples. :D

    How you know you're ready to start competing at the next level?

    If there's a point system, move up when you point out. However, it's generally considered good sportsmanship to move up before that, when you are consistently placing highly in your level.

    Connection in standard dances

    You'll hear both, and IMO it really depends on your partner height. Tall partner, you can get away with the ribcage connection and gain more freedom in the legs. Short partner, you need a lower connection to get more "volume."

    I personally wouldn't syncopate the last step of the COD. If I wanted to cheat it to stay on phrase I'd time it QSQ instead of SS&. Even SQQ is better than SS&, IMO.
