I don't know about Wu Tang being dance. Xing yi never is....pakua I honestly haven't seen enough of...and tai chi has been destroyed and given to geriatrics :\

I do know one thing alot of people try and pass other things (shaolin, wushu, mixed bits) off as wu tang.

Generally not the original shaolin you see today.
You know any good books describing these events?
