Hi everyone!

My interest is in dance events, IE events where the public get on a
dance-floor and move to music from a band rather than just watching others
dance (although that is allowed)

I started by coding some events as http://schema.org/DanceEvent but on
reading further into the Google documentation, I changed this to the more
generic http://schema.org/Event. So at the moment, Google thinks I have
some of both types.

The Google Search Console Structured Data > DanceEvent report shows that it
was picking up events OK but the Structured Data > Event report displays
much more "enthusiasm", extracting Start Time, Location, etc.

Is this essentially a Google limitation or am I doing something wrong?

Also, it would be appropriate to code up some events as both DanceEvent and
ChildrensEvevnt and even EducationEvent for some cases but can't see a way
to do it - assuming that there's any point in being that clever if Google
prefers simple "Events"
