but these kind of dances are not part of a personal practice? They are just for showing or for some rituals? Means, they are only done by dancers?
I never heard about dance as a buddhist spiritual practice.
But i practiced some kind of dance-meditation when i practiced Ananda Marga Meditation (some kind of Hindu) long time ago: Kiirtan.
One steps left and right while singing, keeping the arms uplifted somehow, tipping the toe on the ground...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJTKyfal ... re=related
I liked that very much. It could grow into a very high inspiring vibration.
They do this Kiirtan before the sitting meditation.
Then i heard from dance as a practice in the Antroposophy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurythmy
This is often performed, but also given as a practice for the benefit of people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSoq6gdmOwE
And very nice are the findhorn-dances. They touch something deep inside while dancing:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHTe2CssKcI
Am I off topic?
Ah, no - because Dharma must not be inevitably buddhistic.
