- do you dance?
i dont, i’m saving up all my dancing for when i’m a dad. most guys i know are pretty firm non-dancers.
do you dance? is it something you realised isnt actually that embarrassing as you got older (my dad learnt latin dancing after he got diagnosed with cancer)?
mrsconsequence used to dance professionally and has danced in west end etc, she doesnt like that i dont dance…. i fully suspect that having a mini-rave to myself listening to dirty drum and bass whilst she’s trying to do something important isnt the kinda dancing she’d love me to join her in!Posted 6 years ago
No. Can’t stand it. I think it looks bloody stupid and I’ve no inclination to do it even though I don’t mind looking stupid. I’m usually the guy found propping up the bar chuckling at the wacky dancing going on around me, but each to his/her own.
Ah bless. Feel a bit left out cos the blokes what can dance get the ladies round them eh?
I’m a Champion Bogler, me. Proper good at dancin and that. Probbly one of the best dancers on here in fact. Especially enjoy the jealous looks of the boring uptight repressed blokes standing lonely at the bar who have no sense of rhythm….Posted 6 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
I was at a wedding over the weekend and flatly refused to get up and dance.
I hate it when you are happily nursing a pint at a wedding and some stupid idiot takes it upon themselves to assume you are lonely and tries to drag you up to dance.
This is especially annoying at those stupid Irish-themed weddings they do with that barn dancing lark they do whatever it is called.Posted 6 years ago
elfin you little trouble starter, strolling into my thread trying to start fights with people who feel different from you! i dont dance but, and i’m guessing its down to my beautiful face, i’ve always been surrounded by laideez whilst my ‘dancing mates’ get laughed at by the girls sober enough to use their eyes 😛Posted 6 years ago

I dance at any opportunity, always have. When I used to go clubbing Me and my mates used to spend a lot of time on the dancefloor.

Nothing to laugh at, its just people having fun. You’re the one thats missing out.Posted 6 years agotangMember
I danced ballet/contemporary till I was 17. My best mate went to Laban and then lived in NYC/Athens as a dancer. We were in the straight minority so lots of fun. Was very fit when I danced and a huge amount of time was spent developing ‘long’ muscles. Had some great times dancing with AMP and dv8.Posted 6 years ago

<serious mode>not really, some people dont enjoy dancing and belittling them isnt a kind thing to do…. sometimes that disliking for dancing comes from a very deep psychological place born from a crushing low self esteem and often embarrassing moments as a child. not really fair to try and wind people up about it</serious mode>Posted 6 years ago
Back in 2004 I wanted to go skiing with my wife and a big group of mates and their wives. My wife wasn’t keen but said she would if : 1) I bought her a Helly Hanson ski jacket and 2) Signed up for a course of dancing lessons. I thought that was a fair deal as it was only for 10 weeks. We were still going 5 years later. 8-( Birth of second child put a stop to it.
Tango, Paso, Waltz and Cha-Cha are ace.
Jive and Quickstep are good fun but for lighter people than me with better control and proper shoes.
Rumba is bloody difficult.
You can stick the Samba up your ass.
The rest I forget.
One of my greatest regrets in life was crossing a Piazza in Venice in the early hours of the morning with a few drinks onboard. Just me and the wife and a busker with an accordion playing a tango. The wife wanted to dance and I didn’t. I wish I had.
So… yes I can dance. But I’m rubbish at it.Posted 6 years agoMilkieMember

Shuffelin, shuffelin…Posted 6 years agoMrSalmonMember
Not if I can help it really. I used to happily drunkenly jump about at rock/metal clubs or gigs if you can call that dancing, but other than that I just don’t really know what to do with myself and end up shuffling about feeling a bit daft.
This is especially annoying at those stupid Irish-themed weddings they do with that barn dancing lark they do whatever it is called.
See, I don’t mind ceilidhs(?) maybe because you’re not out there on your own wondering what to do- I’ll have a go at those.Posted 6 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
I did once pole dance* with two (male) gay dancers in ‘Fudge’ gay bar in Leeds. They had just come back from a season in Ibeeefa and were mad as sticks. I think my friends were on the verge of walking out and leaving me to it.
*Not real pole dancing – just a pole in the bar that we pretended was a proper pole dancing pole.
I was very drunk.Posted 6 years ago
