It strikes me that this isn't nearly as silly as it sounds. There are
lots of people who have good footwork and yet who don't dance well with
the upper body. I think we tend to concentrate too much on what the feet
are doing at the expense of the upper body. SCD is not a feet only thing,
and there are many instances where upper body is more important to the
correct execution of the dance than lower body.

I think I'd rather have a good upper body dancer with limited footwork
than perfect footwork with limited upper body technique. After all, it's
more fun to look at the upper body than at someone's feet.
