Dance Gypsy (n)
Someone who frequently spends more time travelling to and from a regularly scheduled contradance than dancing at that dance.

I've never driven more than 6 hours each way to attend a three hour dance, but up to 18 hours for a weekend. So far I've danced in 28 American states and 3 Canadian provinces.
