In showing or watching videos for the purposes of teaching or learning, I
noticed that some people start watching the technique and miss the
'geography' of the dance. And often in live videos all the dancers are
dressed the same, so it's easy to lose 1st couple - or 2nd couple or
This is why in the 3D animations each couple is a different color, and they
essentially just show the 'geography'.
So perhaps for a value point system we would need to consider what we're
trying to get across -- technique, covering, or simple geography.
Or perhaps just distinguish live from animated?

I was thinking about the excellent quality of the sample video (Cord
sent the URL) and wondering if the list (which we hope Anselm can have
available on his website) could allow a brief comment--or even a value
point (say 1 to 5). If you have only one video of a particular dance
and it's not that great--it's better than nothing. If there are
multiple videos of the same dance it would be very useful to have the
better ones noted.
Is there any way members could log in and give the name of the dance,
the URL and a comment? This info (with the magic of computer
databases) could be posted automatically. Hopefully not too much human
intervention would be required on your end.
