Subject: Straight or turned in feet are not proper either. Properly turned out feet (i.e., not exaggerated and properly done at the hips) are what should be winning. The problem is that proper and safe dance technique is not part of the TC or AD exams.
In reply to: Avoiding the issue? 's message, "So there is turned in feet, straight feet, turned out feet and overly turned out feet. I saw dancers in champ with straight and turned in feet - is this okay now in champ?" on 19:11:22 09/11/17 Mon

Ridiculously difficult and expensive memorization exams that do nothing to actually make sure TCs know anything about how a dancer's body works, what proper dance technique is, or how to teach technique in the right way.

They also don't test whether or not the canidates know any proper dance technique. Do your own choreography? What a joke. How about demonstrate that you know what XY and Z techniques are and how to teach them. That is technique, not whether or not you managed to memorize the choreography for a particular ceili.

There is not one thing on the exam where they ask a candidate what turn out is, how to do it safely, how to teach it. This goes for other technique as well. No wonder dancers experience so many injuries.
