    Did a course with mrs blobby a few years ago, I was hopeless at it but it was very amusing. Wouldn’t worry about making a tit of yourself, there will likely be others in your position too.

    I believe it’s a good way to get fit & lose weight…..

    …….if you’re really desperate… 😉

    Girls like it, though. 🙄

    Isn’t there a chance [hopes for a positive reply] that I’ll become a sensitive, emotionally-connected new man and learn skills that’ll help me elsewhere in life, I’m thinking balance skills maybe? [/hopes for a positive reply].

    don’t worry about what you look like, as with biking you will never be as good or as stylish as the pro’s. just enjoy yourself and feel good that you are helping MrsCamo achieve a long held ambition

    Nah my pal goes with his misses, says its actually good fun, & I dont think he is the kind of guy the rythm is with…

    Even reckons it to be a lot more physically tiring than you would expect.

    Just enjoy it, surely if you make a tit of yourself it just adds to the fun.

    Think of it as cross training, you’ll be more supple and flowing on the bike, assuming you’ll have time to ride what with all the competitions. 😆

    Have you seen how fit dancers are? Of course its physically tiring!

    (Wouldn’t be seen dead doing it personally!)

    If you love her you should go, [stifles giggles] you shouldn’t be bothered about what you look like as long as you’re having a good time and supporting and encouraging your mrs in what makes her happy..

    Ballroom I found a bit meh, but interesting never the less for a few weeks.

    Swing/Jive etc… much more fun. Just relax into it – you might surprise yourself!

    Yeah, I thought there’d be a dress code. No boardies and sleeveless tops for me then. 🙁

    Thanks for your support, Khani. 😆

    If we do it, I’ll post a pic of my firmed up butt cheeks in a few weeks… you won’t be laughing then.

    Possibly.

    More likely you’ll turn into…

    Try and be so crap she doesnt want you to go?

    No, however these things tend to be full of single people, so if you give up and chose not to go again as you have no reason to, then they will appear “sensitive” and “emotionally-connected” as they’re doing dance classes (they won’t be, they’re just there in a deperate attempt to pull) and MrsCammo16 may become MrsBobFromDownTheRoad.

    Hope that helps.

    Years ago ,a girlfriend dragged me along to ballroom dance lessons.
    I could only dance with the instructors 😳

    not ballroom, but jive. well, not me, but my sister and her fella….

    looks good and if i’m honest i envy them just a bit. certainly more fun at a wedding than watching folks like this:

    have kept saying to my GF that we should do a a fwe classes, but it’s a case of finding the time.

    Gets you very fit and the flexibility, core strength and hip movements will serve you well in other activities you can participate in together.

    Plus you get to wear sequins!

    hahaha no. hahahahaha.

    He’s gonna be moving slowly and stiffly around an old church hall trying not to crush his missus’s toes not busting some advanced ballet moves with Leroy from fame.

    I’m sure if you enter into it with an open mind and a willingness to participate it’ll be fun and I expect your wife will be grateful for you indulging something she wants to do. Not only that but you’ll become a dab hand at sewing your own sequins.

    I’d do it if the wife asked me to but I guarantee she’d ask me to stop after the first lesson. I am absolutely the least rhythmical person on earth. No-one dances worse than me. I can’t even do a little side foot/side foot thing because it means I have to listen to the music *and* move my feet at the same time in sync with it.

    I’m sweating just thinking about how difficult that is. I am of course, extremely jealous of people who seem to be able to do it effortlessly. Yet again the gods conspire against me to be attractive.

    Oh I’ll be crap alright, whether I try or not. 😉

    As if I wasn’t paranoid enough, now thisisnotaspoon’s got me worried that we’ll go, BobFromDownTheRoad will be all tailed up, slick and smooth and she’ll happily dance the night away in his cloying, professional embrace while I’m dancing with the no hopers, trying not to fall over in my new, tight shoes.

    I took Salsa with a “girlfriend” of mine.

    It
    Was
    Ace.

    For some reason I seemed to be the most wanted in the group to Dance with yet I had about as much rhythm as a drunken ostrich. The teacher always singled me out to show moves and yes it was a little embarrassing at the time, for the first couple of lessons,mout you soon settle into it.

    All you really need to do now is get a decent Morning Suit ready for the enevitable competitions !!! 😆

    How many sequins are we talking about here? Different colours for each outfit, I imagine? Surely it’ll help me with the lining up of my rim/tyre logos?

    Khani, If I’m going, I’m roping you in! 😆

    I tend to think more…

    Do I admit to this…

    I used to dance for my University, both Modern Ballroom and Latin.

    My only regret was not trying it earlier and having longer to compete. It’s fun and yes you can use it when you go to weddings etc. as it is nice to be able to do a few dances properly.

    Jive is probably my favourite, a lot of fun and has the highest impression/skill at social gatherings like weddings. Waltz and social foxtrot are probably very useful for occasions. Rumba can look look a bit sleazy and I’ not a Cha fan. If you really get into then learn a really good Tango with the missus then you can really impress and make the other women swoon and look disappointingly at their partners.

    Starting out it is really hard (well it was for me) to pick up the steps when the instructor is going through them all quickly. It is something you learn to get better with as you see similarity in the steps and no longer have to use all your concentration moving the right foot.

    Salsa and Samba are probably the hardest for me to pick up. I blame being a rigid white guy and not some sexy latin stud with fluid hips.

    How many sequins does a dude like this require…

    …to transform into a hot’n’steamy ballroom star?

    And is there, like, a shop for this stuff?

    Don’t forget, a big part of being accepted into a new social group is looking the part.

    what tyres for ballroom dancing?

    So we’re saying ballroom dancers have more questionable taste in clothing than cyclists. Possibly. But they’ll run them pretty close.

    Probably not on the firmest ground for mocking the clothing worn by others, while indulging in their hobby of choice, are we really?

    Which means – if I have to have both – I’m definitely going to lock my wardrobe. 😯

    I just got back from CLS where there was a Danish Strictly Come Dancing type course thing happening. Those people worked hard! They were up and Salsa-ing while i was still eating me porridge. They did a gala thing at the end of the week and they were really good and they all looked like they were having an awesome time.
    Maybe hang fire on the sequins though …

    Mrscamo16 has expressed an interest in dancing (Ballroom probably)… and it looks like I may be roped in on a weekly basis. 😯 It’s something she’s wanted to do for a long time.

    Trouble is, I dance like Johnny 5 from Short Circuit doing John Travolta. Hard. The spirit of the dance isn’t with me and I’m already starting to suffer from severe making-a-tit-of-myself trauma. 😳

    Is there a good way out of this, or is there any hope that I can discover my inner Astaire?

    Look on the bright side, in a few years you’ll be able to cha cha and rhumba your way down the black at degla.. It could be a new nich, extreem ballroom freeride DH, you could make videos..
    Be different from the usual manuals, big air and tail whips..

    All I can hope is that if I do go along – and if, as I predict, I become a badass ballroom legend – I’ll wake up one morning and my life will have seamlessly transformed into a musical.

    Strangers will group together when I go into Asda and sing a little number about saving money every day when Mrscamo16 and I sache down the fresh fruit aisle looking for fresh chillis.

    You, Khani and the STW mockers, will be at the bottom of the black run, cursing your steel and carbon frames, as we glide down the peak high-kicking over each obstacle as the music swells…

    Then I’ll wonder how come I know words like ‘sache’ and stop shaving my chest hair.

    Rhythm I got. Dancing I don’t.

    Remember The Mary Whitehouse Experience? Hugh Dennis “this has got a good beat”? Thats me, that is
