    Default Dancing

    Inspired by the juke thread and the ridiculous dancing therein - I'd like to see more of this but spread out across various styles. I'm thinking everything from the black bottom to ballet. Also interested in the links between different types and how they relate to each other (I guess everyone's seen that thing when someone has dubbed Run DMC over some cossack dancers - it works very well which isn't that suprising I suppose because breaking and, er, cossacking are both athletic dances that take the form of a contest). Unfortunately I can't get on youtube at work so I can't kick it off now but I'm hoping that when I get home there will be loads of amazing footage for me to enjoy.

    "Surely Breakdance >>> all other dances : )"
    Not sure about that - you're looking for different stuff in different types and I often prefer watching simple good movement to athleticism. Also, doesn't ballet (amongst others) require similar levels of athleticism but more rigour and control?

    Agree with you on the ballet, tho im thinking in terms of 'street/club' dancing its so exciting to watch.

    I am a fabulous dancer. When I was in Leeds, I earned the soubriquet 'Crazy Legs' Craner. Jim Clarke once told me I dance like John Travolta on acid.

    Ugh, that's slightly repulsive. I don't think I like fingers, but fingers dancing...
