Vor ein paar Monaten untersuchten Wissenschaftler die Suchtgefahren des argentinischen Tangos inklusive physischen Entzugserscheinungen („Physical symptoms of withdrawal were reported by 20% of the entire sample [of 1,129 tango dancers] and one-third described a strong craving for dancing“), dazu gibt es jetzt eine neue Studie und yep, Dance Addiction „was positively associated with psychiatric distress, borderline personality and eating disorder symptoms“.

The aim of the present study was to explore the psychopathological factors associated with dance addiction. The sample comprised 447 salsa and ballroom dancers (68% female, mean age: 32.8 years) who danced recreationally at least once a week. The Exercise Addiction Inventory (Terry, Szabo, & Griffiths, 2004) was adapted for dance (Dance Addiction Inventory, DAI)…. DAI was positively associated with psychiatric distress, borderline personality and eating disorder symptoms…. Dance addiction as assessed with the Dance Addiction Inventory is associated with indicators of mild psychopathology and therefore warrants further research.
