Bad Habits for Men, Ladies, and Dance Places

These are some sure fire ways to become the dancer, couple, band or club to avoid.

(in no particular order)

 

1. Come as you are. Why bother with a shower and fresh clothes. You are just going to perspire anyway so why mess up a clean shirt.

2. If she won't step where you want just push or pull a little harder. Some of these women are like mules you really have to let them know who is in charge! Isn't that what leading is all about?

3. And... Why move where I'm being led? After all, I know the steps better than him! Maybe a little back leading will help.

4. Get out of our way!! Can't you see that I have to finish this pattern.. And why isn't this dance floor the same shape as the one I learned the pattern on?

5. Sorry I rock stepped on you but you should have known my feet are so big I need an extra six feet around me.

6. And for those who dance at clubs... Do non dancers run into you on a busy sidewalk? No? Then why do you spend your night dodging the same non dancers in the clubs? It must be something that makes people go blank when they step onto a dance floor.

7. And what's up with these bands that ignore the dance floor. Why play dance music? All these people are here for is to find out how cool we are.  Can't Waltz at triple speed for nine minutes? That's not our problem. Tempo changes just make the music interesting.

8. How about the social clubs. You know the ones. The day just before the dance was Bingo night. Beer, sodas, candy, pizza cheese, mayo from burgers.  It's all there, still on the floor. I just can't figure out why my shoes are so dirty. If you want to spin quick use the corner with the mayo stain.  Venture to the spilled beer corner and you can stop on a dime. What a challenge!

9. Back to the studios... Hey lady! That new arm styling was pretty cool. I ducked pretty quick too didn't I?

10. (And my all time favorite) Which dumb bell instructor taught you to stop and back up like that? If you are going to do that again you need signal lights so we don't get another multi-couple pile up. And if you insist that neither of you needs to look behind when backing you need rear view mirrors and a backup alarm as well.

 

Every once in a while I need to let it out. Boy do I feel better. Does anyone have something to add to this list?

 

 

Any other ideas???   Mail it to us:      <<--Return to Dance Tips Menu
