How to list Dancing in the Soundtracks without the Song

Just watched Casbah (1948), and Katherine Dunham plays a character and dances with her dance troupe, including Eartha Kitt. But that's not listed in the Soundtracks, perhaps because the music to which they dance is not actually a song, but something composed for the film.

Especially since Dunham both acts and dances, I'l like to see this film listed in her Soundtracks credits as well as her Actor credits. Any suggestions for how to post that in Soundtracks?

I ask because I've tried before to get a Soundtracks credit listed for Bill Robinson dancing In Old Kentucky (1935). Here's how I submitted the item on 171129-111949-772000:
"The Sidewalks of New York"
"In the Good Old Summertime"
among others included in medley
danced by [link=nm0732408] at 58:45
And the Soundtracks page is still empty today.

Many dancers do films without dancing. I'd like to see from their Soundtracks credits in which films they performed. 

Any advice for how to submit either of these credits?

Hi bderoes,

Unfortunately this is a breach of our policies as the dancer did not perform either the music or the vocals for the song in question therefore is ineligible for the soundtrack section. You may enter this information in the Trivia section though.

I hope this helps.
