Both Steve and the reader have a point, although I suspect that norms vary enough between communities (dips are more usual in some communities than others, for instance) that one person's flourish is another's "dancing it as written" (e.g., if the norm for the community is to complete do-si-dos without twirls, and I go and spin like a top through mine, that might count as a flourish there, whereas it's a fairly normal thing at Glen Echo even if it's not explicitly in the choreography).
I'm not sure how to incorporate that in the infographic, but I'm open to suggestions.
Thoughts? Opinions? Something I completely missed? Does a mostly-objective definition exist that doesn't implicitly or explicitly say that all flourishers are jerks by definition (a viewpoint that I will -- unsurprisingly -- contest)?
