1 If they're going to do all this line dancing, why do they never do it to country music?

Pavanes would be nice. I wonder if anybody Scadian is doing anime  pavane videos.

2 I looked. Several videos with music called "pavane," but no actual dancing of pavanes.

Here's a good pavane video with live action! The music's Dowland, and "Lachrymae Antiquae" is just his instrumental version of his hit madrigal,"Flow My Tears." The dancers don't start until about 1:45.

Medieval dancing is usually more fun to do than to watch, and it's more fun to do with people you know well enough to be able to flirt non-seriously with. Hence all the eye stuff, and sometimes people's handclasps or palm touches are also flirty. These dancers manage to convey a lot of that to the audience, too, so they can join in the fun. I'm not great at dancing or socializing, but I always had a lot of fun at SCA dances.

Stick around for the Arbeau galliard on the second bit of the video. One of the guys looks suspiciously like he took an Irish stepdancing class as one point.

Anyway, I don't think I've seen much physics for handholding, pulling along the line of dancers, or swinging of wenches in previous videos, so
possibly that's not there yet.

3 Well, I decided to run a search instead of just wondering....

<A HREF="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKkz4Pp1SSA">Apparently the answer is that anime-ish country line dancing videos tend to get nuked by YouTube</a>, even if the band likes them. But they're out there.

4 Sorry, forgot to link correctly. Armored suit country linedancing:

And I guess I have seen linked arms before, and there are MMD waltzes out there and even whole ballet numbers of pretty high quality, so I guess it's just a lot of work to link hands realistically. I have now seen an awful lot of animations where the models suddenly turn into Kitty Pryde and phase through other models' bodies.

I have also had my brain scarred by the continuing saga of "people who don't look up what medieval European clothing looked like."

5 Wait, what.... You're saying that Linedancing is actually real?

6 No. There is no such thing as line dancing. Its a myth like Mothman or chocolate cornets.
