I hate the flora with a passion. There are no arms, it is boring to watch, and there are only 6 steps total, toning down the selection quite a bit. It might be tollerable if it had something interesting like some spring points or arms, but nope.

The other one is the barracks, but it isn't too bad I guess, just really boring to do all the breaks.

Sorry. Slight vert on Flora-ness....

I despise the Scotch Measure because of the turns and the Village Maid because it's too walky. My biggest strength is elevation so "pretty dances"(as I like to call them) are not my strong point!

My least favorite is the Flora. I'm not sure if it's the pace or the steps or both, but I find it boring. I don't care for the Aboyne either. I prefer the tailored look and feel of the kilt. There's too much fullness to the Aboyne skirt and I feel like a ball of fluff in it. Not good.

Right now, my least favorite is the Flora. I mean, when I'm doing it onstage everything flows nice and smoothly, but practicing it is such tedious work!

I LOVE the earl of errol! It's one of my favorite dances, and for the same reason that you all seem to not like it. I love the music, and I love the way it's different than everything else, like almost backwards.

It's funny a large % of dancers dislike the Flora. My daughter absolutly loves the Flora!! But she is almost 6 and is sick and tired of the PDB's, and she groans when we practise the sword. She likes the Lilt, but her favourite is the Flora, but I'm sure when she gets older and the National dances aren't so new, she'll have a least favourite!

I HAAAAATE the barracks - those stupid turns at the end....hate it. I don't mind the Flora too much actually - although it's near the bottom of the list for me as far as dances I'd rather do go....I like it better than the lilt though. But I HATE the barracks....

When my daughter was a primary about to move to beginner they had just learned the lilt and where starting on the flora she loved both of them. Now as an Intermediate (only a little over a year later) she hates the flora, she says its boring because it has no arms and just hates the shuffles. She is still in love with the lilt because its pretty and because she's also helping her brother who just started dancing a few months ago learn the lilt, so its now fun to see him dance the lilt and figure out the arms that go with it.

My least favourite national dance would be the flora because I find it very tiring especially when it comes to the shuffles in the last step. I also find my arms get sore from holding my skirt through the whole dance. Maybe I get tired because I find it a boring dance but no offence meant to those who like it.

I hate the laddie. The last step ruins it for me, who can honestly make that step look good? It's just so boring.

I dislike the Lilt WITH A PASSION.

I really do enjoy the Flora in competitions.
And I think the most fun to watch is the Blue Bonnets.
My least favorite to watch is the Johnny.

Hmm my opinions seem to be different from everyone elses...

I really don't like the Flora, I think it's just because of lack of arms and the shuffles. Because of the lack of arms I just lack motivation while doing it. My favorite is definately Blue Bonnets though.

I HATE the flora but only because of the shuffles, I don't really like scotch measure or the thistle either but i think its because i always forget them - maybe my fault for not learing them properly.

My silver national exam was the worst! 6 step Flora, 6 step lilt and 4 step Earl of Errol

I really like the lilt but 6 steps was just too much

there is no question about it- the flora is the absolute worst! i hate it so much. i had to do a 6 step 4 my nda lesser known exam 2 years ago and now i see there aren't ne interesting steps to do i hate it. I love the lilt because it is quite easy on the legs and it is usually one i can pull of at the end of a long day. i also love the blue bonnets and the village maid because they look really pretty (even though i don't know either of them that well considering i'm only noveice- perks of being the daughter of a dancing teacher i guess). Oh and i also hate tribute to jl mckenzie, it kills my legs and it is really confusing! Ggrrr i get frustrated just thinking about it!!!!

I don't know why everyone dislikes the flora so much lol!
I think my least favourite national has got to be the Barracks Johnny. I hate the last step!

I really don't know what everyone has against the flora - ok its not the most exciting, but the village maid is absolutly the worst dance ever, its so boring, i hate it. I'd rather do all of the listed dances in a row than doing to VM and that's saying something, but i despise that dance so much. TBH im not a fan of skirt dances altogether.
