    COLORED TEXT GOES HERE
    Okay.
    So, first post.
    I don't go out often, mainly because I don't dance.
    Which leads me to my query....
    What is a respectable dance for a twenty-two year old male?
    I enjoy listening to Electro House, but the dancing... Electro Dance/Milky way/Tecktonik appears to be a "teenage" fad.............icon_sad.gif

    -thanks.

    Well you don't want to do 8 counts ahahahahahahah!! ohh goodness ahahahaha!!




    If you're dancing to something like this. It is more of bopping around and hands in the air. Just watch people and not the ones acting like a damn fool lol.

    Are you dancing to have fun, or to make judgemental people happy?

    Get out there and do whatever comes to mind.

    You may stand in the center of a bar or dance floor without dancing.

    Otherwise take a course in contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, break-dancing, ballet, ballroom, swing, Latin, or folk dancing.

    Life is for living and laughing! Enjoy it at your own pace and not live under the control of others. A few dance lessons would help and for genres of music, go for tutting, hip-hop and house.

    First thing, do it sober. Watch others dancing, and if you like their dancing, then your sober perspective will help you understand how they move. Try someone's moves out to see if they feel right in your body. If they do, steal it. If someone's movement doesn't feel right when you do it, drop it and steal from someone else. After a while you learn how your body naturally dances and you'll develop your own style.

    Also, it doesn't hurt to go to a dance studio and get a professional to help you out. Tons of places offer "house" dancing in addition to hip hop, jazz, latin, or smooth social dances.

    It's really up to you and how you want to move. It has a lot to do with your mood and how you feel at the time also. I would say just go out there and cut some rug and you can't be worried about what every one else is thinking.

    I taught myself, watched what I thought looked good in others, avoided what looked bad, tried to copy the better stuff. I also remembered the criticism that Jack delivered to Will in a Will & Grace TV episode: "You still point when you dance." Know what the dated moves are, unless it's a retro night.

    The other major trick I learned was that most guys who dance poorly are keeping their feet glued to the floor like elephants. They sway but don't really move around. You gotta glide, think of yourself like ice skating, one foot always barely brushing the floor. They don't say "light on your feet" for nothing.

    Modern jogging & athletic shoes are terrible for that, cause they have too much traction, exactly what they're built for. Leather soles are great, but cowboy boots too stiff; your ankles should be free to move. So I learned a few more tricks to make my soles more slippery, and I could spin and slide very easily.

    I also let the music beat direct my feet, from having some musical experience, can anticipate even new numbers enough to dance along in time and interpretation as I go. Last, my hands and arms are important too, as I keep them in motion and basically try to "pantomime" the number. Practicing at home alone doesn't hurt, either.

    I'm doing it to enjoy myself.... mostly... I just don't want to look like a jackass trying to dance something meant for youngsters.
    Kind of like this guy:

    (he's a horrible dancer.... But a great example.)

    Doing what comes naturally is not really a possibility because I have not been exposed to much dancing in my life time. So I don't really have any moves saved in my er- hard drive........

    God. This is way too much work......
    I guess I can try to look up some 'house'-esque/rave dance courses. Shouldn't be too hard in LA,Ca right?

    Thanks for your input.
    -More research is required.

    Oh yeah...
    The video above me is not very useful. icon_smile.gif sorry....

    And I love dancing with pointed fingers. icon_sad.gif

    Dancing is just another expression of the self. Just do , let your self go. The times I can't dance it's because of the music. If a DJ can't mix then your body can't follow the flow.

    So like GQJOCK said, "Just Dance." Move your hips. Do it slow do it fast, listen for the beat and match your body. remember, look at others and not everyone on the floor can dance, so again "just Dance." Don't be so self conscience.

    Someday you can dance as hot this RJ'r

    This isn't the time to be joking. icon_cry.gif
    It's serious.

    Oh yeah. That chicken dance was so annoying. I don't know how anyone could possibly watch the whole thing icon_smile.gif

    But this dance:

    BodyWork4 saidPhotobucket


    does seem interesting.

    Maybe it's the cartoon guy more than the dance. Both seem great in general though.

    It's hot when a guy gets out there and dances and looks like he's having a great time. It's even hotter when the guy can move....

    Go Footloose out there. Believe me I've seen people who swear up and down that they are great dancers, and look like complete fools on the dance floor. Who cares honestly. Just avoid breaking someone's ankle or an eye gauge and you'll be okay! icon_biggrin.gif
