flora and laddie are my least favorite. I feel like i can't control my upperbody in those dances no matter how hard i try. I really enjoy the lilt, blue bonnets and earl, even though the earl is hard on the thighs.

I seem to be in the minority here.. I love the Flora. I love the music, and the story behind it. I also like the dance itself. When I was much younger and a beginner, I worked for hours every day trying to learn the Flora from a video because I loved it so much. It's also one of my best dances.

However, I am not fond of the Earl. I just don't find it all that graceful or fun to watch/dance.

My least favourite to dance is the flora. My least favourite to watch is the earl of errol. It's so long and boring.

I love the Earl of Errol. I think it is beautiful and I love the last step with the leaps.
Earl of Errol!

I don't like the scotch measure .. it repeats WAY too much and I hate how the 1st and last step is exactly the same, though it does give me less to practice

It would have to be the Flora. It is just so boring. But the barracks and Laddie are pretty close behind. My dad is a piper so it gets boring having to listen to a very repetitive tune when there are plenty of other tunes.

Awww, poor Flora! I actually always loved it in comps, I always found I was more relaxed dancing the Flora than any of the other dances...and I got the most placings for it. But it would be nice if there were more than 6 steps, the three middle steps get a bit boring.

Uch, I would vote for the Flora to be banned. It probably wouldn' be as bad if they didn't make it the national dance for novices every competition! Is is so hard to mix it up and let us do the lilt every one in a while?

My least favorite dance to watch is the Village Maid. Unless it's done very, very well, it reminds me of watching robots dance! I agree with previous posts, the Earl is lovely from the spectator's perspective.

I am suprised so many people don't like the flora. I think that it is a pretty dance to watch and the music is lovely. My DD always does well with this dance and she looks so pretty and graceful. She is just in intermediate so I am not so familiar with the older nationals. Maybe then I would have a better opinion.

I hate the Flora and Lilt but if I had to choose one it would be the lilt. I am in priemer and I am still having to do those dances. I have been doing them since I was in beginner.

Of the dances done at competitions, I REALLY, REALLY loath the Village Maid! I don't like watching it at all, and actually have decided not to make any effort to learn it.

Of the exam dances (though I'm told it's no longer needed), I really intensely dislike the Dusty Miller, unless someone could put it in fast-play or something it might be tolerable.

I actually like dancing and watching the Flora and Lilt (though the Flora really can do with some new tune or something). I once had an old vinyl record from WAY back when my mom used to dance that had a beautiful sounding Flora on it, played not on bagpipes, but on a fiddle, with many other accompanying instruments. I somehow lost that one over the years :(

I'm more of a national dancer than a highland dancer..which is strange since I don't like most of the dances haha.. I absolutly love the Earl (he's so dreamy), I like the village maid (she's so flirty), I don't like flora (she's not very fancy), I'd rather run than Lilt, I would never go to Jonny's Barracks, The highland laddie is a little to wild for me, who wears a Blue Bonnet these days when they go over the border?, The scotch measure..well I'v yet to find a good measure of scotch, The sailors hornpipe...love those sailors, the irish jig...oooh don't get me in a mood or it can become my best dance!. hehehehe

Oh my god, I hate the scotch measure.

I mean, the first step is the same as the last step. And all that turning and bending? I'd rather do the flora.

On a side note, earl is one of my favourite dances! To each their own, I suppose!
