A new beau wants me to go dancing at a club

But I have no idea what the kids are doing on the dance floor these days. Should I just make something up?

Most dance floors don't have enough room to really dance anyway. Some go just to people watch. I've told others that ALL white men claim that they can't dance, especially if they're sober. Or you can just copy what your date does and you'll be fine. Make sure you smile and look like you're having a great time.

Just don't bob your head like a moron and you'll be fine. Keep it simple.

I hear the Varsity Rag is very "hip" and "with-it."

by GWMreply 302/28/2013

The term at this stage of your relationship is not "beau", OP. It is "gentleman caller".

The Macarena is HUGE right now. Expect to do it 7 or 8 times during the night. I attached a video to help you learn it. Many of the moves will be useful for the few other tunes they might play during the night. Practice and ENJOY!

Twerking is all the rage! If you get a few bills thrown at your ass, your beau will be highly impressed.

Can someone help me with the name of the line dance which gives instructions as part of the song? "To the left, to the left, now walk it 'round and round," or something like that. It's done by a Black male singer, and is the only time I actually saw everyone on the dance floor.

OP, learn this little number. You WILL be the envy of the dance club. THE John Travolta of the night. You may have to request it from the DJ so don't forget to tip him a dollar to play it. And don't forget to SMILE!!!

Learn this exactly and they *will* follow. Swear.

by GWMreply 1002/28/2013

OP, don't believe ANY of these cockologists, they are trying to mislead you. Just remember this and you will be fine:

You put your right foot in, You take your right foot out, You put your right foot in, And you shake it all about.

You do the Hokey Pokey and Something, something, something, That's what it's all about!

by GWMreply 1102/28/2013

OP, just do this little dance number and you'll be fine.

by GWMreply 1202/28/2013

You know, R11, the least you could have done is provided OP with a visual. It is a great dance by the way...OP will surely score some points with his beau by learning it.

How do you post a link to a youtube video? Every time I try to do it, I get an error message.

you are an idiot

by GWMreply 1602/28/2013

A few tips, OP. Just follow what steps the other kids are doing, and try your best.


Make sure you have mad money and a dime to call your mother if your beau gets fresh. But most importantly, be very watchful about how your Coca-Cola is served. If you don't see the cap removed from the bottle, don't accept it because someone may try to slip you a mickey.

by GWMreply 1702/28/2013

Here's two in one - you can't go wrong with either. I am SO excited for you, OP. You are going to be such a hit!

Meanies, quit razzing OP, Could someone seriously tell me the name of the dance whose lines I quoted in post R7?

by GWMreply 2202/28/2013

The Choo-choo Charlie

Mame is that you at OP?

by GWMreply 2402/28/2013

I hear that the Charleston is big with the dandies, see? But you’d better do it right, or it’ll be curtains for you, Mack!

by GWMreply 2502/28/2013

First you put your two knees close up tight. Swing it to the left and then ya swing to the right. Walk around the floor kinda nice and light and then ya twist around, twist around, with all your might.

Spread your lovin' arms way out in space and do the eagle rock with lots of style and grace. You put your left foot out and then you bring it back. That's what they call Ballin' the Jack!

"The Cupid Shuffle" is a dance that's only a couple of years old.
