Agreed. A couple such as Bestemianova/Bukhin, for example, might head in the direction of some more innovative form of visual expression rather than a romantic moment. I think the racecar program of Punsalan/Swallow was in that category as well. Vive la difference!Disagree with your premise that all (couples) dance is about romance. Social dance is simply an expression of emotion, whether joy, sadness (blues), celebration, struggle, prayer, love or romance, usually set to some type of music. Two people dancing together can convey whichever emotion they choose depending on their musical choice.
