TECHNIQUE - THE KEY ELEMENT

I am often asked which is the most important for west coast swing or dancing in general.. is it technique, musicality, showmanship, timing or many other related possibilities ? my reply is wow !! that's a loaded question !
Mainly because all the other elements I was asked to compare technique to which are musicality, showmanship and timing..are all comprised of specific techniques of their own which make them useful..
So for me I strongly believe that technique has to be the obvious answer to the question !

TIMING - TEAMWORK and TECHNIQUE

TIMING - TEAMWORK and TECHNIQUE
All the recent bantering back and forth on the internet about what is swing, swing content and the lack of or presence of it has given me reason to think about just how misunderstood what we do or are trying to do when we dance west coast swing.I am thinking about the first of the 3 T's (Timing, Teamwork and Technique)which most judges base their decisions on regarding who wins, who places and even those that make semi-finals and finals in Jack and Jills and Strictly swing.
