Maniac

Does that mean she's dancing BETTER than ever before [the clear intent of the lyric], or a more straightforward reading of the syntax? She's dancing like someone who has never attempted to dance before in her life.
I think it means she's doing a simple variation of her usual dance, not that it's better, and not that she has never danced at all.
