    a dj, just as well as a "normal" instrumentalists, you need a basic feeling of rhythm, which of course can be expressed in body language ;-)
    if you call it dancin' or not doesn't really matter.. i'm starting out as a dj, cause when i hear good music of a special kind, i just have to move..

    I love to dance, but I dj alot because I know I'm not great at dancing. Always doing my thing behind the laptop though. can't be a robot dj unless your daft punk of course.

    I hate to post ads but NZ has some good ones atm. I'm like the 4th best dancer as described here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHQUBVdrJLU

    I still go out to clubs with the express intent of dancing. Especially being I'm in a happy relationship, I have a lot less pressure.

    Hell, I rarely drink these days. I just show up and rock the fuck out.

    Can't know what makes people move if you don't know what moves you.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Yea this is similar with me being in a relationship, although I still drink a bit, and still dance badly lol.

    Excellent question, I always think about this. Also I must confess that I was re-reading a book called Djing for dummies (aka djing for alien2k ) and I read the following on page 139:

    "I remember one night when Alex P did a guest
    spot at a club I had a residency at, and the other
    DJ (Dave Armstrong) and I were left wandering
    through the club, feeling a bit bored whilst waiting
    for him to finish (because remember, DJs
    donít dance)."


    To be honest I felt quite dissapointed with this quote about Djs not dancing. I bealive as a dj I was born on the dance floor and that is why I know what to do to keep it going. I think that all djs should dance and absorve the enrgy and learn from being on the other side.
    Here is a good example, this is a video of Ricardo Villalobos dancing at fabric

    Very cool responses!! This is exactly what I was hoping to hear.. Now you've all got me fired up, I might have to take off work tonight without notice so I can go break it down tonight.
    Thanks ;-j
