    Maybe that's what they think dancing is... Or, perhaps they are tense.

    I think they're so concentrated on doing their steps on time, that they aren't paying attention to how stiff they are... as they get more comfortable, this too will pass.

    It could also be that they were told that they are too loose to the point that they arent leadable, or if they are a guy, they cant give strong enough leads. So they over-do it and make themselves too stiff.

    In some dances, I suppose this is part of the 'style' of the dance, but generally I would say if someone looks stiff and rigid it's because they are uncomfortable - perhaps not with the steps themselves, but with themselves doing the steps (if that makes sense)

    I guess I think they're taking the dance/themselves too seriously. I think the best dancers make their performances look natural, graceful, elegant, and smooth without looking like robots at the same time.

    I reckon stiff people havenot practised enough, in my opinion your body should have had a warming up before you can really dance smootly
    (and I just love the point where your body says "com'on baby show me hell!") :D

    From what I have seen, seeming "stiff" while dancing is a sign of lack of co-ordination. They are trying to control their body the wrong way through tightening of the muscles rather than simply contracting and releasing.
