    Good grief they are terrible.

    I miss the old school youtube videos that would pair the dance with the source.

    These just seem so.. bad? God awful?

    Oh boo-hoooo, an allied race got a new dance I didn't like.

    I can sort of get down with the KT ones (though that Female Kultiran is so unsightly, what a heffer!)

    The Zandalari ones though, not feeling it. As someone else said, they don't compete with Darkspear whatsoever.

    What even is that male Zandalari one? It could be so many other dances, and not some weird ass flapper female dance from the 50s.

    Well... these are rather, disappointing.

    Of course everyone is going to hate the dances, they hate everything about the game.

    I actually don't mind that the female troll dance is the gwara gwara (which is South African), considering that the Zandalari Trolls have mainland African accents, as opposed to the other Trolls with Caribbean accents. Though, they do obviously have Pre-Columbian architecture and clothing as well, so it could have gone either way.

    What's with the expectations. Dance emotes are pretty lame all over in video-games. I didn't think these were particularry bad, at least better then most original ones.

    GOD that female Kul Tiran model is so ugly. They missed an opportunity to make a badass looking model.

    Watching the video of the 'origin' of the Zandalari Troll Female Dance, to be quite honest, I don't believe that it does the dance any justice. It looks more like the female troll is going into convulsions rather than doing a proper dance. At least with the other races, the dances have something that is more like a dance, and recognizable as such, instead of the pretty lame movements that they choice for this. I can't say I am much for the Kul Tiran Female dance either. Can't tell is she is trying to exercise, or getting ready to body slam someone... LOL!

    I am utterly shocked by the negative Nancy crowd and their reaction to these dances. Almost as if they transitioned from fan status to hating trolls long ago.

    At least the Zandalari got unique dances, unlike Mag'har.

    The female Kul Tiran in particular has a short dance that just repeats. (Anyone else think of the hippo/croc ballet from fantasia with this?)

    I expected nothing and I'm still let down
    Sure, it's difficult to come up with funny dance ideas for each race, but this .... even the Fortnite towel dance would have been better ....

    WHat dances are these meant to be?

    I could guess quite quickly with the older ones, but these? No idea. Tbh, the KT male one looks like any drunk ass man in a club flailing around, and the female one like a fat chick in her room pretending to be a ballet dancer.

    Both shit to my mind.

    Are you kidding me? Seriously are you kidding me? The main feature allied races, that were announced back with BfA got less dance animations than dwarves and night elves?!

    Male Nelf says hello. Not sure about Forsaken female. I think its not that bad if the dance is actually quite good.

    Zandalari troll male dance kinda reminds me of Wildstar (anyone still remeber?) male's dance.

    Because, up until these, the other allied races were just re-skins of existing races.

    These dances are atrocious, and the Kul Tiran female still looks terrible. It's the new female worgen I guess.

    Just me or are those dances severely lacking in more moves... ?
