The classic audiophile "pose" is sitting still in a chair, probably with eyes shut, and perhaps a toe tapping. But some music demands that you leave your seat and dance. Do you often get up and move when your audio system is playing?

If the music doesn't move you to dance every so often, you are probably not listening to the right music.

Often, yes. But I never kid myself that it's a pretty sight. Likely it would yield from an observer a shudder like the one Ray Wiley Hubbard uses on "Snake Farm."

Not dance per se, but stage act with the air guitar to the music of the Beast: King Crimson!

Air conducting sometimes, dancing occasionally.

As i get older, I listen less to what moves me on the outside and more to what moves me on the inside. Plus, with the kids around I only get to listen later at night at low volumes.

Especially when wearing headphones.

I listen to mostly classical and jazz which do not endear themselves to dancing, but depending on the time of day, my mood, energy level, etc., a certain pop, rock or country tune can get me to move in some form or fashion.

Since I retired the system is on 8–10 hours a day. I read and live as I listen. Each day there are at least two hours of just me and the music>

Sit still, dark room, eyes closed. If everything is just right, I will fall into a musical trance. That is the nirvana that I seek from this hobby.

Who just sits and listens? Lame.

Usually when I'm listening to some of my electronic selections.

I find that I play my best air guitar, drums, trumpet, bass, you name it, sitting down. If I stand I lose my concentration and I so need to sound exactly like the recording. I guess I am just a perfectionist!
