I don't know your kind of humor, but I think, you are Mr. Funny. ;-)

And it sounds really ironic.... MetaFont-Book without any

Ok, man, characters/letters are a kind of a picture too, so you are
writing texts without letters?


...if it was not all a joke, what you wrote above, and if you may want to
know, how daces can be visualized, then the keywords for that

  - laban-notation  (very detailed and complex, but for all kinds of
                     _movement_ - any kind of dance and not only dance)

  - motif-notation  (a more practical version of laban-notation,
                     with a lot of defaults)

  - kahn-notation   (specialized tap-dance-notation)

I want to combine motif-/laban-notation and kahn-notation and
add conventional muscial-staffs (@Rotate 90d {staff}).
