Another Dance?Edit

I was looking in the WoW model viewer and the male and female humans have an animation called "EmoteDanceSpecial". They look like a slow dance of some sort, Do these happen at all in game? And if so, when?

The ghostly humans in Karazhan's ballroom slow dance. Egrem

Link to Dance Videos Edit

If anyone can link to videos of where the dances were taken from that'd be cool.

Human Male: [1] at the end of the video there is a side by side comparison with a character and John Travolta.

Night Elf Female: [2] at about 3:20.

Gnome Male: No video ID specified. Please edit this article and add it. Video

Actually I think there's only a vague resemblance between Alizée and the night elf female dance, but I'll need a side-to-side review UPDATE: Oh 3:20? I pulled it up to 2:30, yeah I'll have to say they're similar, then. D Long ownz U (talk) 00:00, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

New Animal Dances Edit

After seeing the Druid Forms dancing post 1.10 I have this to say: Bears - Although simple, it looks exactly like a circus bear dancing. In other words, hilarious. Cats - Too simple. What are they doing, trying to be a DJ? Really, I think Blizzard could've done better.

Dwarf female danceEdit

Actually, I've realized that the Dwarf females isw NOT dancing riverdance! They do the background dance to the song Moscow! [3]

Anyway; I added a link to an Irish step-dancing example --Kuroukaze

Fel Reaver Dance Edit

Checking the Burning Crusade model viewer, I've seen that the Fel Reavers do indeed have a dance animation. Whether or not this is happens in-game, I don't know. I also have no idea what the inspiration is, or what it's called, etc. I gave a summary description of it in the article. Help would be appreciated - Zerstoren@ 11:26 AM PST January 28 2007

Well, alright, it was deleted twenty minutes later, because "they are not currently controllable/playable in anyway". I understand this reason, but I feel the Fel Reaver dance should still qualify to be on this page despite not being able to be "preformed" by a PC. It is still a dance after all. Anyone else care to share their thoughts? - Zerstoren@ 2:35 PM PST January 28 2007

I see no reason for it to not be included. It's reasonable info, but I added a note about it only being seen in model viewer.  Kirkburn talk contr 18:37, 28 January 2007 (EST)
Voidvector just added the murloc dance, good addition! Any others missing?  Kirkburn talk contr 19:23, 28 January 2007 (EST)
Skeletons can dance, I believe the dance is identical to that of forsaken male. --Voidvector 19:34, 28 January 2007 (EST)
Ay, that they do. It is the same. Referencing the model view, Broken Males actually use the Tauren Male dance. Unfortunetly, the Broken female is fragmented and doesn't work, though it seems to be in progress. --Zerstoren
Broken uses the tauren animations entirely, right down to the butt scratching. Similarly, the skeletons use Forsaken animations, and the Wretched use Troll animations when standing but Forsaken when dancing. --User:Varghedin/Sig 07:52, 29 January 2007 (EST)

Seeing as you control a Fel Reaver in the quest "You, robot," it could be possible to make it dance. Can anyone confirm this? --Gilmat; 17 August, 2007

I could not figure out how. /dance makes you dance and kills the reaver, and there is no button.--SWM2448 18:48, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Gnome Male DanceEdit

So, I took a look at this "Caddyshack gopher" video and it bears little resemblance to the gnome male dance, aside from a few vaguely similar arm movements. Until someone can produce a good video that demonstrates exactly what dance this is, I am removing any reference to a real-world dance. --Bwmathis 15:05, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

Is not it the one MiniMe did in the Austin Powers movies?--SWM2448 16:10, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

MiniMe is probably accurate. The thing the Gnomish males do with their fists clenched is an R Kelly thing circa 2000. The rest I can't pinpoint. SnarkyG 12:36, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

MiniMe is definately wrong. You can see this done is many old rap videos, the most famous of which is MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This." It's the last dance in the video, as he walks up the stairs. Caddyshack is wrong too, I'm going to remove the reference. I agree with BWmathis, that dance has about a 15% correlation with the Gnome dance at best. Xombi 17:46, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

I was sure I saw those strange moves somewhere. And I was right! It was from Elaine from Seinfeld. No video ID specified. Please edit this article and add it. Video Kianco

Female Blood Elf Dance Edit

The video link no longer works, YouTube deleted the video because it (apparently) violated their terms of use. Is there a more permanent link somewhere that could be used instead? --Toksyuryel 14:02, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=066_q4DIeqk at around 2:30 has a dance routine of Toxic, but I'm not sure it's the actual routine of the song UPDATE: That is a iDance clip, and the dance is made of exerpts of dances from different videos, so this is the best I can get.D Long ownz U (talk) 23:52, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Tauren Female Edit

I'd always thought that the Tauren Female was the electric slide, not the hustle, and after doing some research, I continue to have that opinion. See [4] and [5] for comparison. So I changed it, but feel free to discuss if you disagree. Too bad though, the hustle has much better music.  :P --Maldian 07:48, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Daenei Female Edit

I dunno how, but it seems that many of the moves thay use appear in the Dance Scene in Pulp Fiction, for some strange reason. That makes me kind of wonder, did they base it of Uma's Pulp Fiction moves, or did they really use that belly dancing some guy has claimed? [6] It appears near the end, that some moves bear striking resemblance to many of the draenei female moves. That is strange, because I thought the alpha dance for both Blood Elf genders were based of the dance scene between John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. Anyone care to explain to me? This whole thing makes me confused. --Kulsprutejojjo 13:19, 2 September 2007 (UTC)


Blood Elf Female Dance Edit

"Blood elf female - According to the Burning Crusade Collector's Edition DVD, the blood elf female dance is made up of excerpts from various Britney Spears videos. More accurately, the dance was taken from a Korean "iDance" video. The dancer seems to take a few moves from Britney, but otherwise it should be stated that the choreography is hers." seems contradictory. The official BC DVD says it comes from Britney Spears yet some (nobody) person claims it comes from some Korean dance video (with no citing or reference at all).

I've seen every move in the BE female dance done in Britney Spear's Toxic (live concert) videos. I've seen a dance video from a Korean game called Yogurting. Britney Spear's concert videos predate the existence of Yogurting. Even the BC DVD says it's from Britney Spears. I'm removing the misinformation about the Korean inspiration and posting a reference video from a Britney Spears concert.--Lockwinghong 21:17, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Draenei Male Dance Edit

Yes, the male draenei dance is automatically associated with "Tunak Tunak Tun." But the actual dance is called the "Bhangra." —Qit el-Remel 11:46, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Draenei Female Edit

... How the HECK can you say that their dance is Shakira? Before I was a HUGE fan of Shakira PLUS I have watched the Tunak Tunak Tun video and the girls dancing in teh background are dancing the Draenei Female dance... I swear *cuts his hand* O.o blood... --The Lich KingPetitiongossipiconVendorgossipicon-Battlemastergossipicon 15:27, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

What are you talking about? There aren't any girls dancing in the background in the Tunak Tunak Tun video.
IconSmall Draenei Female Farseer Loloteatalkcontrib 12:24, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
No... I reviewed the video and it looks like the female draenei dance. D Long ownz U (talk) 23:52, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Undead FemaleEdit

"Goth-style dance"? What's that supposed to mean, anyways? I know that all goths don't dance like that...or are you referring to Gothic-looking? I heard somewhere that it's "liquid dancing" which I've never seen....I has a confusion >.< Aliron 00:15, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I do believe that this is liquid dancing. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquiding) The focus is mainly on the hands and arms, and the smooth "liquid" flow that it creates. It can be seen mainly in rave culture.
That is getting into stereotypes right there. It was called 'liquid' for a while[7], but it was changed to 'goth' by Literati[8].--SWM2448 00:39, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
I know it's getting into stereotyping, which is why I think it deserves some looking into. I don't feel it's right to stereotype something as "goth", not only because that stereotype is so broad that it can be twisted into nearly anything, but because I doubt it's goth at all. In fact, the video it's linked to mentions hippies! So....has anyone actually seen this dance?Aliron 22:14, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I can't word it, but it's a rocker head-banging to be honest :P - Falesa 05:56, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I believe that the move is called the "weeping willow."

And I would like to add that the fact that the video mentions hippies doesn't prove anything—except that some people define the word "hippie" rather broadly.  (And can't spell it, either—"hippy" is an adjective that describes the female draenei model.)
IconSmall Draenei Female Farseer Loloteatalkcontrib 23:19, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
I have been in the rave scene and this is a variation of liquid dancing. Not really a lot to this demonstration, but to get the full effect of liquid, especially trying to code it on 3d models is a really PAIN!! - Olyx

Tabulated and Clarified Edit

I've taken the opportunity to tabulate the existing information, adding the best icons for each case, and clearing up any ambiguities I can. I hope this has improved, rather than worsened, this article. --Drathaen (talk) 04:34, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Suitable substitute for thefemale human broken link? Edit

I found this on YouTube and I want to know if this is a suitable replacement for the current broken link to the female human dance insparation:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NZjHKfbbiQ D Long ownz U (talk) 00:50, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I think that's probably still an illegal copy. This is probably safe - you see the dance moves, hear a portion of the song. It's not quite as good as the music video but I can't find an official copy. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 10:18 PM, 7 Aug 2009 (EDT)
