Do you like to dance?

26

Most likely you either love to dance or you hate it. Very few people fall in between those two ends of the spectrum. Which end are you on?

For example, at a wedding when it’s time for dancing, do you hop right out of your chair and head onto the dance stage, or do you grab another drink and sit down quietly, hoping nobody will notice you?

Tell us how you feel about movin’ and groovin’ in the poll below. In addition, if you have any funny dance stories, we’d love for you to share them in the comments.

Slow dancing with my wife is always good however as we have aged I need a new knee. Pain even makes me want to sit out the slowest. Now and then at home we will still make the most of a song.

I grew up in the Sons of Hermann dance hall in Texas. My grandparents and my parents both danced. Dancing is in my DNA! Music starts and my feet start moving. Great exercise!

I love to dance but unfortunately that doesn’t translate into being able to dance.

I love to dance, and I just bought new clogging shoes. Great exercise. Gave my dentist heck this week for putting on 80’s music while he held me captive during a root canal. All I could do was wiggle toes and tap fingers. That was punishment!

No category for me. I’ve never really tried it. I’m sure I couldn’t do the Twist any more though.

Loved to dance until my body turned older than my mind.

As a teenager I had a tough time finding new dance partners. One in particular was very good, she and I won swing, R&R, and jitterbug contests. Another partner and I took many Country dance honors. In my20s the NVA eliminated all but a slow dance once in a great while. No complaints, had my time now time for others.

I have been a musician for most of my adult life and I enjoy watching people dance, Unfortunately I have 2 left feet and I’m afraid of stepping on my DW’s toes & bunions, so I just mostly watch. The funniest thing I’ve ever witnessed was some young gal really gettin’ down and her tube-top got down, too. Our horn player blew a few sour notes out his sax and split his reed at about the same time as our drummer knocked over his cymbals. She literally brought the music to a standstill. LOL

Hi, Jim. That reminds me of almost 60 years ago when a boat full of teenage guys were trying to teach me how to water ski. Got up on the skis, and down came the top of my swimsuit. I let go of the water ski handle and sank into the water — and never tried water skiing again. 😆 Diane at RVtravel.com

I learned at a young age…if ya wanna date a girl, learn to dance! (I wonder how that sounds to millennials in this day and age of PC ha!)

My husband and I love to dance but I am not very good at it. However, my husband drags me onto the dance floor – he doesn’t care what others think – he just loves me.

As a teen and young adult, I loved to dance. Unfortunately, my wife is a lousy dancer and it’s kinda embarrassing to dance by yourself…sooooo… Now, in my golden years, my knees are now the lousy dancer.

We were avid square dancers until Covid hit. Hopefully someday we will be able to get back to it. Talk about a contact sport!

Where we go in Yuma for the winter, the line dancers have taken over! I hear the comment over and over, the line dancer are so rude, they take up the entire floor, the C&W dance folks can’t do their thing, or they will line dance to Led Zeppelin or Bob Seger, if you play it. Or the comment that sunk in this past year, “ever notice there is no expression on their faces. They are busy counting their steps, no smiling”. The only smiling is when they mess up or lose count (or drunk). Line dancing was provided for the ladies or singles to get dance partners, I guess. Personally I don’t dance, but I love listening to music and watch people have a good time. To me, line dancing is less entertaining than the chicken dance. Call me a relic, call me what you will. Say I’m old-fashioned, say I’m over the hill….

I don’t dance well so I avoid it. I went to group dance lessons for awhile but I felt I was holding back the class. These years, I don’t go out like I used too so rarely an opportunity to dance.

Over the years I have become far less worried that people were watching me dance….now, I subscribe to that adage “dance like no one is watching” and enjoy myself. My husband and I have a dance in our kitchen each and every night. Just love it.

If you are shy of dancing because you don’t want people to see how bad you are, take comfort in knowing that everybody is watching the hot shots.

Two left feet, I can’t dance and haven’t tried again in over 50 years.

Of course being from Texas, we were taught country/western at an early age. Taught our daughter country western when she was 10. If my wife was out of town on business over a weekend, I’d take my daughter over to Billy Bob’s at the Fort Worth stock yards. Also let me scrutinize potential suitors as well. Only downside occurred when she asked me to teach her boy friends to dance. Had to explain the difference between boys and girls. Mainly, there is no teenage Texan boy who has the self-confidence to agree to having her girl friend’s father teach him the correct way to two-step, Cotton-eyed Joe, and western waltz!!!

But those teenage boys would be smart if they did! That’s similar to the advice I gave my grandson years ago regarding learning to ride his mothers horses. It will always impress the women.
