It's not a particulalry good looking dance on female characters either.. Far too stiff.. Minimal hip action, almost no bending of the legs at the knee, no turn out of the leg and foot, no big sway... The movement is far to stiff.
A good fan dance is a flirtation, a come hither, a tease, with exaggerated motions, yet the fans (or fronds in this case) should always held to obscure the dancer, not to reveal. Those skimpy little anorexic palm fronds just don't really do not the trick they are both small, and do not and can not conceal the dancer.
The tempo of the dance is off badly also, and changes through the run of the animation. Its a palm frond dance performed by someone who doesn't know how to dance and is NOT enjoying what they are doing. a little kid could do a more entertaining palm frond dance then what we see in this animation.
It's amazing the difference in quality of the animation and movement between this dance and the Samba and Samba advanced dance emote that the summer event brought us. The samba animation is erotic, ALIVE, and joyous, no mater the gender of the dancer. The fan dance is just.. dead... in comparison I'm afraid.
It needs some serious work to be an attractive dance emote. I can dance a fan or frond dance in real life. Watching a zombie twitch would be more enjoyable...
