Like I said if it was proven to be a popular choice then it would probably be added although at the moment not many people have requested it.
Good luck trying though

They should have a dance based martial forum anyway. We could talk about Capoeira, Silat, Escrima (which I hae read was turned into a dance when the Conquistador outlawed it when they occupied the Philippines) Tae Kyon...

And also we could use it to discuss effective fighting strategys of modern dance. Like Kevin Bacon beating up the town hicks in Footloose. I thought it was pretty realistic use of dance for SD. And don't even start me on Westside Story...

And I my "Michael Flatley vs Jackie Chan, Who would win?" thread would finally have a home. Its too good to put anywhere else on this site. Also my "Survivors 'You're the best around' or Sammy Hagar's 'Winner takes it all', which is best to montage to?" thread needs a place to set up camp (ha ha, I made a funny!)

P.S. My first point was serious.

P.P.S My other points were super super serious

haha the dancing thing is a funny idea
reminds me of a video game that Michael Jackson had a long time ago, haha

But I do like the concept of like MAs hidden in dance. Kali was very much similar to capoiera during Spanish occupation, with many wide sweaping movements and a stance similar to a jenga.

I know its not relevant but seeing as we are talking about dancing:

Quote:

Martial arts and street fighting, however, were not Bruce Lee's only pass times as a teenager. When Bruce Lee was 14 years old he enrolled for dancing lessons and later went on to become the Cha Cha Champion of Hong Kong! This unlikely departure from Lee's violent world was perhaps as strong an indication as any, that deep down Lee truely yearned for a life that would be somehow involved in realm of artistic expression and entertainment.

Sorry for the post I just wanted to prove that good things come from dancing and also to lighten the atmosphere.
