I've been known to dance a bit while playing flute, though arguably not in
a traditional sense of itm dancing. Whether its fiddlin or flutin, if your
standing, i think its pretty hard not to let the music affect your body
language and expression. It comes back to the foot/feet tapping issue.
Though its reputedly a "no-no" to tap in competitions i recall Charlie
Gaffney (RIP) dancing away, even sitting down.
it is dance music after all. tis a gorgeous day here and i hope it is there
for all of you.
