My GF and I are on the same page as you on all of those, except this one. We just don't get it. Yes, they have a ton of energy, but they're not very good dancers. They're fast dancers. No fluidity,...

If you decide you like a set after demoing from the dealer, ask if they'll sell you the demos. They often will, and it'll save you some money.
