Funny, I was just looking for the same thing. Most of them seem to be about idols that mainly sing and act.

Here's what I just found recently...

Lovely by PAEK Sang Eun - scanned by Esthétique
Imitation Love by Hwang Mi-Ri - the story description doesn't mention the dancing though.
Pop ‘n Eight Beat by Fujiwara Yuka

Here are some great dancing films;
Dance with me
Bootmen
Strictly Ballroom
Flash Dance

Enjoy

I can already guess that dancing mangas will just lead to romance......and that's something that im not interested in

Yep, generally girl orientated, just like the movies that were quoted.

There's also Doll(s?) by Fuyumi Soryu; it's very shoujo and it's about ballet dancing. Short and sweet, although I prefer her seinen works over her shoujo.

I think Teppan is also about dancing, although it's the Johnny's Entertainment type of dancing. You know, boy-bands. And a girl disguised as a boy.

You mean comic right?
But manga means comic.
So, in Japan it would be an american manga?
:P

Do any of you happen to know about a manga that involves ballroom dancing. The main character is a girl. She and her brother (I think) used to be a pair, but he died, and now she has a new partner. I read it a long time ago, but I can't remember what it's called. I haven't been able to find it again. All the sites I used to frequent have closed down...

I want one with the characters and soundtrack of Bust A Groove!!! It's an amaaazing Play Station game and I hate that no one bothered to recreate it.

I absolutely LOVE Swan! The artist's style makes the men look pretty feminine and the eyes take up half of their faces, but if you can get past that, it has a really great story line. The dance sequences are really amazingly drawn. You can tell exactly how the person is moving. It doesn't just focus on female pointe dancing, either; it also features male dancers, which is a rare sight. I highly recommend it.

Funny story about male dancers... I performed in The Nutcracker with a dance company when they came to town a couple of years ago (they came back this year, but nobody told me when auditions were...) and all of the male dancers were so... interesting. There were a few straight guys, but some of them were... uh.. very gay. Anyway, since we had to be backstage a lot, we would often times walk in on them changing out in the open... oh my god >_> it's not even hot because the muscles that they have developed for dancing are unrealistically huge. It's so weird looking xD
