    I'd like to learn how to dance...

    The other day a few friends and I went to a club, in the center of the dance floor there were a lot of nice looking girls dancing, but I have absolutely no idea how to do any sort of modern dancing. (I don't think I'm alone--it was like a Jr. High dance--a bunch of girls in the center and groups of guys on the periphery).

    Can any of you dance? How/where did you learn?

    I want to shake my grooved thang!

    i can not dance. but there is a solution to my problem and maybe to yours :thumbsup:
    when i get so drunk that i don't even know who did i go out with, my body just starts to dance on its own and another good thing is that it doesn't matter what is the music. works for me :lol:

    I, like you, do not know how to dance. The trick is to find the girl there who isn't dancing like the rest (meaning she doesn't have a clue of what she's doing and is trying to play along) and dance with her. She'll understand that you can't dance either and no one else really cares how you dance. Trust me, no one else cares. *insert shifty eyes smily here*

    I don't think that guys can learn how to modern dance at least not the ones that I know anyway. You either know how or don't. Most of the guys I know just get drunk and go out there and wing it.

    That happened to my friend and the girl liked it. :cool:
    IMO grinding isn't dancing. It's just a cheap excuse for guys to get a lapdance.

    Because it represents the degradation of our society. I would rather work for a girl than easily pick up some filthy **** at a club.

    1) bring stool onto dance floor
    2) raise right foot onto stool
    3) hip thrust hip thrust


    There you have the planted foot technique

    I can't help it whenever a girl grinds on me... it embarrassed the crap out of my homecoming date and practically ruined the night for us both (she was really shy).

    I vowed then and there to only dance with drunk girls who wouldn't care, and when I myself was drunk and therefore less... erm... excitable...
    Almost any "nice girl" nowadays seems to grind, unless they're a fundamentalist Christian... at least that's how it works at my school (and we're as conservative as you can get without being bob jones)

    Exactly. Hip-hop is taking over. Next comes a "gangsta" mayor...then a "gangsta" president.....

    Or it might get you laughed at if it's like, a pack of certs or a chapstick.

    Thing to do is start dancing while you're young, basically. And don't be a wallflower at those school dances or it's going to become more difficult to push yourself out there.

    Me, I worked at a disco back in the old early 80's, and also took disco-dancing lessons, so I had an advantage. Most girls don't care if you're really good or not, as long as you don't dance like a total fool; and even that has its place. Thing to do is get it done; ask a girl to teach you to dance, that's one that works on their motherly instincts.

    Well if you want to be a new Baryshnikov, forget it. ;) Other than that, anybody can learn to dance, nomatter what others say. Especially the kind of "dancing" that goes on in clubs. Mixed had a good idea, get a female friend to teach you. Or just watch, copy and practice practice practice. Eventually you'll get the feel of it. Learn some basic moves and use them until you feel confident enough to improvise. A big mirror is your friend. ;)

    Watch what everyone else is doing. If you don't behave like a complete dork while trying to follow along, you should be all right.
