Obstacle Dancing

  [vote for,

Lots of people know how to dance amazingly well. So why don't we distinguish among the experts by placing delicate obstacles all over the dance floor (e.g wine glasses; eggs, custard pies) and see how well the contestants can avoid all these objects while still performing a perfect Argentine Tango.

       Having a very untidy house, I think this is one sport I might be very good at. bun.

       A very accurate quantitative judging system. [+]

       Would this not tend to favour those of us who, unable to dance due to an ancient accident, merely stand there making vague wiggly motions with our hips whilst nodding our heads in time to what I believe is called the 'beat'?

       You'd still have to do the steps, [Max], but there'd be a penalty for every object you knock down (plus I'd love to see the look on a glamorous gown-girded lady's face when she steps in the custard pie :)

       Greek dancing. Plates and glasses being flung at the fireplace. Used to be an expression of grief. But it's not done so much anymore.

       Free running.

       Would this lead to a Dance Dance Revolution Revolution?   

       I see the finals as a ballet conducted inside a ridiculous gauntlet machine, with swinging axes, pendulum weights, fire pits...

       Ha ha ha ha!   

       ...and barefoot freestyle on Leggo.
