Dance music genres[edit]

This template, which falls under wikiproject dance, is focused on dance topics. Recently, the "dance music" entry was removed from See Also and replaced by an entire table row that lists "dance music" genres. Aside from having "dance" in their names, these have nothing to do with dance and therefore do not belong on this template. If this is appropriate then it would also make sense to create another row that lists, for example, all songs that have "dance" in their titles. I propose that: (1) the template be restored so that "dance music" is listed under See Also; and (2) all dance music genres be removed from this template. If it's important to list these genres on a template, they can be added to an appropriate music-oriented template. Lambtron (talk) 17:02, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree, its just that they have dance in the title, which is only because of the way in which popular music genre names are created (they tend to be portmanteaus of other genres). They don't really believe on a dance based template.--SabreBD (talk) 17:49, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
The dance music genres are related & oriented with dance. Their genres have a different setting, like dance-pop is a dance music genre in a pop setting. Superastig (talk) 01:41, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
An entry under "See Also" is fine, but an entire row for "Music" at the same level as "Types", "Genres" and "Technique" does not seem justified to me; a seperate {{Dance music}} template might be. — Robert Greer (talk) 12:22, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
The template has been restored to its former state per consensus. As suggested above, it might be logical to list dance music genres on a music-centric template such as {{Dance music}}, but it's clearly inappropriate here. Lambtron (talk) 03:00, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
