PS I got a good laugh out of Brian's posting on this.
PPS On a serious note, I feel that the discussion on this topic is missing a
point. That is, there are horses for courses. The people who enjoy RSCDS-style
dancing tend to be people who like precision, such as mathematicians (mea
culpa), scientists, librarians and architects. Whereas those who prefer ceilidh
dancing may well find precision tedious or worse. So shouldn't we just accept
that dancers have different personalities and different preferences, rather
than being judgmental about the behaviour of one or the other group?
