    I love how people immediatly resort to:

    "LOL fat jokes"

    and

    "OMG it's the first allied race with unique dances, I can't be happy with anything so I will rage about it all!"

    Is there an estimated release for 8.1.5 yet? I mean is this build getting close?

    They do seem to be a bit lacking. The closest one to being interesting is the Zandalari female.

    I dont think the dances are "bad". It just feels like they are all missing one more move, or step to the dance. they just seem slightly too short to be complete.

    Yeah but like... that's how all the dances are except maybe Pandaren male?

    Undead just headbang and then jump, Night elf female grinds left, then right, then down.

    Pretty sure female dwarves only have a single animation for their dance, and undead female.

    Hey guys. Maybe let's NOT downvote bomb MMO-Champion's YouTube videos of them reporting what's new in the PTR? They didn't make these unfinished dances, they're just showing us what Blizzard made.

    At least those dances are pretty fluid and that's most of what they are. They are based on a single signature move and need little else. These are dances made with multiple moves with no finisher. I'd expect them to be more 'complete' like the BEs' dances, which include several moves before they repeat. I think the KT male's are the most 'done' looking.

    Awesome, how about the other allied races get their own dances as well?

    Well, these seem... super boring. Not gonna beat a dead horse, but these seem to lack the "fun" that Blizzard's typically known for.

    I feel like the Zandalari would've been fun doing some variation of 'the robot', maybe like legit hip-hop dancers do today. For Kul Tirans... Well, I'm honestly still shocked that we're getting "fat humans" as a playable race, but their dance feels like it's missing some personality. I honestly don't have a suggestion, though.

    They all look rather unfinished to me. Most dances have multiple loops too, all of these only have one.

    So what real life dances are these made of? i just could recognize somehow the male kultiran one

    Disappointing tbh, just like the expansion.

    No, the idea is if people like the video.. therefore the dance. If every one just likes the video for mmo-champion, we can assume everyone likes the dance then?

Darkspear troll has cappoeira which is super cool and troll female has sexy belly dance. Those Zandalari can't really compete with those :/.
    I always tough that zandalari were inspired by the Aztec, Mayans or some other north american culture. But then they all are wakanda and Africa stuff now :s

    Like some one else already mentioned that all other races except for maybe pandaren all have like 1 or 2 different animations in their dance.
    New ones got 2 yea fine by me.
