What steps and breaks would you use if you were competiting in a 5 step Hornpipe??
I would keep my steps basic but a polished routine as if you try for more difficulty then it all can go pear shaped on the dancer..
And also it depends on the age of the dancer too!!!!
What are all your views????

I think that would totally depend on the ability of the dancer. His or her teacher is probably the best judge of that

Hey
Yep, I would say thats up to the teacher. Some dancers are better at some steps then others. GGood luck finding some good steps for you to do though!

i would test out whats best
pic steps that the dancer is good at and that look good but dont get them tired, i agree though talk with teachers and think about what they've done in the past, what can they get through
~hope this helps..... good luck

when i do a 5 step hornpipe( i dont compete in it but i still do it sometimes) i do the normal 1st step, the shuffle 2nd step, double shake and rock 4th step,i forget what the step is called, but you go down with your toes together and come up on your heels with them apart( sorry i am not very descriptive) then i would do high cuts. but that is just me.
