The demo I saw of this model was very impressive. Whilst not a strictly a 'dance' keyboard it will give you a lot of fine sounds of the strings/brass/piano and also AWM2 sounds. With the epxansion boards you can add AN, DX and VL synthesis.

The sampler is based on the RS7000 technology and is therefore nicley capable of beats and drum loop sequencing. Definitely worth a demo if you're in the market for a new workstation

Comments About the Sounds:
From what I heard at the demo the Motif is fully able to emulate accoustic instruments and the basic building blocks of many types of music and with the expansion boards the pallette you have to choose from can be greatly enhanced

(Thanks to Nick@sonic for this info.)
