Speculating about the virtuosity of dance is thinking that could be based on experience, but somehow cannot be empirically checked. The goal of such speculation is to achieve a particular image of dance virtuosity through the use of anticipated changes in economy, politics and metahumanistic approaches. A characteristic feature of speculation about the virtuosity of dance is taking a risk in building radical scenarios concerning the politics of desire.
