Performing Arts/Dance Category
Please add a new, separate category for Performing Arts (separate from "Music" and "Art") and/or Dance. Creators who streamed dance and other performing art forms are left stranded with no category after the elimination of the "Music & Performing Arts" category. These creators now have a much harder time reaching an audience.
Yes please bring back some type of performing arts/dance category! Nothing adequately describes the dance-centered content I stream. I don't get dance seekers or chat enough for Just Chatting, and Fitness & Health just seems to confuse people when they pop in. I feel like I'm misleading people if I stream in Just Dance. There are so many twitch tags available for what I do (Contemporary Dance, Traditional Dance, Improv, Visual ASMR, Mindfulness, Creative) - why no category?
I do juggling and "Just Chatting" is the closest and still far away from the correct Category
There’s no real safe space for people to dance. Just chatting is a minefield. Most people I know dance under the Just Dance category to avoid the trolls, but that means they’re not under the right category. We would love to be able to have a category where people can accurately describe what they’re doing and they could feel safe in the space they’re doing it in.
As a professional dancer, one of my dreams is to make performing arts more accessible around the world through Twitch. Reaching more people through a unique Performing Arts and/or Dance category would beautifully filter and clarify what us performers' streams are about when browsing Twitch, while simultaneously streamlining the process of audiences being able to find us to begin with.
Would be nice to have Performing Arts as a category that's reinstated instead of what happened when Music became it's own category and Performing arts was removed completely.
Would make sense to put the Category in again since we had it already and there was no mention as to why it should have been removed.
Flow Arts just got added, and that covers SOME dance, though I'm sure there's other dance that is left out and that's not cool either!
As someone that has been a performing artist for a number of years i would love to see this category be added
YES PLEASE! I hoop dance on my streams and I'm stuck in the Just Chatting category. Let's get this going!!
Yes please! The only category I've found comfortable to dance in is Just Dance, but sometimes I'd like to dance outside of that game as well. A dedicated category for dance or performing arts would make it much more comfortable for streamers to dance how they want to.
we need a performing arts category
There are a lot of dancers and flow artists on Twitch that have lost a home since Twitch changed the Music & Performing Arts category to just Music. We need a Performing Arts category that is separate from Music!
"Performing arts" are WAY different from the Music category. There are people that do "Acting" streams, or "Voice acting" / "Dubbing" and they need to stick to "Music & Performing Arts" or "Just Chatting". That would be a good addition.
Why there is no category available for self-dancing on the stream? Only Just Dance and this is Game.
