Hmm, do you think a discussion of free form disco dancing should be included here?

Yes, but only in a classical style.

Must the dancing be done in tutus and tights?

Azlan, You are potentially getting into deep water here. You seem to be getting into a definition of what is dance and what is not dance. Does it have to have recognizable steps? Does it have to be repeatable or teachable? Or are you distinguishing between social-type dance and performance-type dance?

I think that since disco is a dance form that we should be allowed to talk about it....also if the only dance we were allowed to talk about was in tights and tutu's then we would never have a chance to speack of my beloved jazz.....oh yea...disco rocks!

Bomablurina, Welcome!<BR>We can talk about ANY dance form in this board. I just recently discovered jazz (after 20 years of classical ballet), and I must say that is fun going to jazz class. (And of course, clubbing and dancing disco is fun too).<P>

Cygnet, do you disco dance in tutus? Image

I would certainly like to see anyone disco dancing in a tutu Image....Ballet is really nice but I find it too structured...I have a tiny part in teh nutcraker every yr. so I get to see all of the dancers and what goes on "behind the sences"...I would like to see a version of the nutcraker in jazz!...but that's just because it's the only chance that I would ever get at being the sugar plum fairy!

I saw a few tutus at Studio 54 in my day....oops dating myself. That was disco at it's finest, and in tutus. Worn by men.

The way this thread is headed, perhaps we should move it to the Fun Stuff forum...

Every generation has a dozen or so popular dances that may only include three or four "moves" only including the hands and have no interactive element. I'd love to learn them all... expand them, reverse them, put them to a different style of music... etc. It's all fair game.

Post subject:  Re: Free form?

Well, jb_dub, you may have a point there. In all forms of performing arts, I have seen famous choreographers/composers/artists incorporate popular culture in their works. But these are usually well thought out and are only part of a bigger picture. Free-form disco dancing in itself should not I think be considered an art form.
