Short block/parry windows is the answer. Fast block but not holding a block. Blocking in the right time, that would require skill. Animation canceling to trigger the enemy block and attack afterwards .. and so onThe only way you can consider it "too slow" is if you expect your swing to be faster than their block. Blocks are *supposed* to be faster, or they have no reason to exist. I mean, what do you want, swings to be faster than blocks? That just won't work. What it really means is that you can't just stand their and spam swings trying to get thru block; you have to move, deceive, use the terrain, which is really more fun, realistic and immersive. And more difficult.
And outside of the jump-spinning stuff, "dancing around" is called footwork.
