I've heard there is a possibility they maybe stopping /reducing them.
I loved going and got an awful lot from it, however myself and many of the choirs I attended hate doing them. There was always a communal groan and moan whenever the choir leader said "right we are now going to learn the dance moves". The general view is it detracts from the singing and when viewed at a concert looks dreadful. sad
Myself and a number of others stopped going but would happily return if it was toned down or even stopped. What's your view and has anyone else heard this ?

I used to sing in a Choral Society and I loved the discipline of it - would hate one where have to do swaying and such- I'm too self conscious for that.

Hi Mumski I sing in Rock Choir and in my group a lot of us do exactly the same when it comes to the dance moves (grimace and whisper a moan) I can't sing and make moves at the same time smile so I mainly hide in the back at public gigs. But I guess a wooden "standing still" performance when you're singing something like "Footloose" would seem a bit strange...

Also some people really go for it and seem to enjoy the moves.

The many choirs I have sung in over the years tends to ask for feedback as to what we like (e.g. which songs) but not one has ever asked what we don't like! So people (like you) vote with their feet.
