Oh Warren I am not that good at those sort of questions. I will have to ask my partner, but it was just an opportunity for those in the US to see a style that is unique to Australia and New Zealand. It is a great form to get alot of people on the dance floor without crashing into each other. It uses modern steps generally over 16 or 32 bars

NV allows you to break away from your partner, it was designed to allow many people to be on the floor without crashing into each other. I also find it easier to judge peoples dancing level, as when they are all doing the same thing, you can see the differences more. I would not have thought it to be Cabaret. I see similarities between American Smooth and NV. A routine is generally repeated after 16 or 32 bars. Not sure if American Smooth does that.

I just don't get New Vogue. I don't understand what it is supposed to be. I really, really, really enjoyed the vid of Natalie Smith and Darryl Davenport, but, giving away my ag..er...experience, what they are doing is what BR dancers once called Cabaret (before Cabaret became Theatre Arts). Is NV the same as the old Fred/Ginger style of Cabaret?
