Subject: RE: Wrong speeds, tunes and instruments?
And going to every other beat is exactly what your dancers will end up doing if the music is too fast. Rather than dancing faster, they'll plod more slowly, ignoring the alternate beats, and the dancing will become heavy and dull.

This could well be why EFDSS asked for the tunes to be faster. It also explains rapper dancers' preference for fast tunes - they don't really dance, they just trot.
