Reference for what?
Use of the word "dance."

Certainly not that...Shioda's books are a much better reference for atemi. I don't think you and Mike are reffering to the same thing.
I was referring to your statement about "Aikido" and "dance" not being used together.

In my eyes, I think Aikido has similarities to dance. When dancing, I send signals through my hands (light pressure) to direct the movement. Also, when dipping, although giving warning, I approach a weak line with a spiral action.

Unfortunately, atemi has never really been as helpful as I'd like when trying to impress a lady
