Just seen Stephen Fry dancing on QI (at about 5.25 in). I think he should be encouraged more. His response to the audience reaction was interesting ("Why can't I dance without people laughing?"). He is a comedian!For all the literary figures, celebrities, philosophers, theologians and intellectuals who think they know better about dancing.
[Dancing is] a farcical, meaningless, disgusting, brainless physical public exhibition...Not so much an accomplishment as an affliction.
