"Ouch!"

 Cheesy

I find it interesting that they work so hard to create the illusion of speed without actually traveling fast. It's akin to riding a bicycle at a snail's pace and then leaning into each turn like a motorcycle Grand Prix racer would. There is something to be admired about that ability, kind of like WWF wrestlers can be admired for what they do, but it's not the real thing.

Maybe a bit strong SG?  I think it feels like the real thing to them, and clearly to a lot of people watching them.  Though I do know what you mean: its like sitting on the ground in a perfect meditation poise and going hummm - without actually reaching into your soul.

Actually Elise, that's the sugar coated version. What I really wanted to type was much more, shall we say, stringent.

It's sad that some, if not most, people see this as good dancing and chase after this, rather than the real thing. They follow the idol, and not the ideal. Not realizing that they're idol is someone many of the greatest dancers wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole, let alone dance with, but have no choice than to mark them first in a field where everyone is trying to emulate this WWF style of...dare I say, "dancing".

The flavor of the month is what I call it.  When all is said and done it will be proper dancing that will last...

Me too!  We might have to go start our own dance competition: call it "ballroom dancing", since that's not taken anymore.
