5 Tips For Dancing With A Guy

1. It’s fine to start from the basics

There is a reason there are specially-made dummy version textbooks for different professions. The dummy version is supposed to teach even the clueless person how something works. Similarly, there are dance classes for dummies which translates to starting from the basics.

Not everyone will be professional singers, but everyone can produce sounds. Not everyone will become dance experts, but anyone with the privilege of movement can dance at the basic level. As such, internalize the fact that there’s no need for pressure. Dancing is supposed to be exciting but also relaxing. If you are high-strung, you won’t enjoy dancing.

The basic dance procedure is simply swaying back and forth to the beat of the music. You are to rest the bulk of your weight on one foot, then rock your entire weight on the other foot as the beat dictates. Avoid locking your knees, else you won’t be able to sway your hips side by side, or back and forth to the pace of the rhythm. 

At first, you might feel nervous or awkward. However, once you feel confident you’ve got the rhythm, you can take extra steps to make the dance fancier. Just make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground all along. It is conventional for guys to take the lead, so follow his lead and steps to avoid too many collisions. 

Also, it is better you follow his lead rather than take the lead, especially if you’re just learning to dance. This will save you from embarrassment and panic. When you feel overwhelmed, draw your breath in and let it out slowly till your head is clear.

2. Ignore everyone else on the dance floor

It is easy to associate dance with competition, especially when you’re in a dance hall. However, if you want to dance with a guy you’re interested in, you should be completely relaxed. You need to portray an in-the-moment picture, so he knows you’re aware of him. 

You can also be the first to ask him to dance. Taking the first step will give him the impression that you like to dance and chill. Guys are more interested in girls who can chill with no pressure or promises. Show that you feel confident and aren’t intimidated by other good dancers in the room.

When he asks you to dance, ensure you maintain eye contact as often as possible. At the same time, make sure you look away, preferably over the guy's shoulder to avoid making things weird. Strike an easy conversation and talk about different things. 

Creating a balance between focused attention and practiced coyness will make the dance memorable and nearly perfect. Also, don’t wait for a guy to ask you to move before you start dancing. You should dance because you like to dance, not because of a guy. It might take a few tries to make a man notice you for your rookie dance steps. 

You should be able to have a swell time by yourself instead of hinging your hopes on him noticing you because you’re a good dancer.

If he ends up not noticing you, it will be his loss. You would have nothing to lose because you had fun by yourself. Forget about being an excellent dancer, most guys don’t care about you having the perfect moves. They just want you to smile at the end of the dance. 

3. Practice different steps with different beats

If you are to become adept at dancing and less awkward in social settings, you should increase your dance practice in private. Practicing at home removes the pressure of learning from an expert or just dancing in a dance hall. 

The more you spontaneously move to dance beats in between errands, the more it is easy for you to dance in other situations. Select several kinds of music to practice different dance moves that you want to try in public next time you are out. Practice slow dancing, fast-paced movements, and specific movements.

Continue the random movements until you can practice more refined styles. Use a full-sized mirror for your practice, get good speakers to give you the dancehall feeling, and get a partner to practice with. If you can’t find a partner at home, practice with yourself.

Ensure you keep your arms relaxed in whatever position you’re assuming so you don’t get tired easily. Meaning, instead of jumping all over the place with random movements, control your limbs by practicing specific moves. Focus on arms, legs, and waist movements. Except you’re using dance as a workout, start with simple boring dance steps.

Another reason you should practice economical moves is that you might end up more in cramped dance floors than ballrooms. You don’t want to be stuck with the knowledge of haphazard movements only.

4. Save slow dancing for when you’re more comfortable

There are various dance types for different occasions, you should get familiar with them. While uncomplicated slow dancing is the easiest form you can start with, it is not the only or always appropriate dance type.

Avoid dancing to slow music with a guy you don’t know intimately. If the guy hasn’t indicated that he wants to know you intimately, it might be weird to slow dance with him. If you’re assured the slow song is fine with him, hold your partner’s hand in the traditional slow dance move and gently sway to the easy beat. 

To avoid stepping on your partner’s feet, be cautious of where you place your feet. At the beginning of the dance, observe the distance between your feet and his. Then, measure your steps so that your feet move in tune with his without any danger of stepping on each other’s toes.

Is it like pulling teeth getting him to spend time with you?
The key to solving is understanding men on a much deeper emotional level. The number #1 factor that causes men to behave this way is actually relatively easy to change with a few subtle things you can say to him.

Take this quick quiz to see if he actually likes you!

Ensure you leave enough room between both of you so you don’t encroach on the personal space you’re not yet willing to yield. If you are dating the guy, it might be okay to have only a little gap between both of you. 

Slow dancing means you’ll both be facing each other. As such, consider holding a conversation about the date, smile at him at the appropriate time, and let your body be in a relaxed mood. 

If you’re not that familiar with the guy, you might want to go for fast dancing. Fast-paced beats require a level of expertise. Therefore, practice ahead with fast beats, so your amateur moves won’t make you look like a woman experiencing a seizure. 

The goal is to be comfortable and enjoy yourself, so you don’t have to get the moves perfectly. Just do what’s best for you at the time.

5. Read the mood to know what he’d like to dance to

It is important to study the body language of your dance partner to know which song he wants to dance to. If he is in the mood for casual quick dancing, don’t go for slow songs. He might indulge you but he won’t have fun. If he’s in a romantic mood, then you know a slow song is more appropriate. 

If you’re in a club or event alone, you’d need to scope the room for a guy to dance with. Ensure you stand close to the dance stage to let the guy know you want to dance. Start a solo dance first, then make eye contact with him. If his eyes lit with interest, smile, walk towards him and pull the guy to dance with you.

If the guy doesn’t show he is interested in you, don’t stand there awkwardly. Walk away to get a drink or go back to dancing alone until you get an interested dance partner. Also, a guy’s level of interest will determine the kind of song you pull him to dance to, even if you’re just meeting him.


How do guys dance for beginners?

Men want to impress the woman they like, so they’re more likely to learn complex dance steps even as beginners.

How do you slow dance with a guy?

Simply follow his lead, and keep an eye on your toes without being too conscious about it. Keep your eyes on him and look away at appropriate intervals. 

What does it mean when a guy wants to dance with you?

It could mean he likes you, thinks you’re a great dancer or just wants to feel you up. His intention will show when you dance with him.

What are good dance moves?

Once you’re able to master arms, legs, and waist movements, you’ll be able to dance almost any dance move.

What is the most romantic dance?

Salsa, closed-distance waltz, and slow dancing are the most romantic dance styles.

In Summary

When Your Partner Dances Better Than You


Asking strangers to dance takes courage, but it’s the only way to learn!

“I’m a very good swing dancer,” wrote a woman to Dear Abby, “and my boyfriend doesn’t dance.”  She goes on to say that while her boyfriend is willing to learn, she doesn’t want to stop dancing with partners at her skill level while waiting for him to catch up.  He doesn’t want her to dance with other men because it makes him feel jealous and insecure.

This letter generated a huge flurry of responses from readers, most of whom were not dancers but a few who were.  I read it all with interest not only because I’m a Dear Abby addict, but also because I run into this situation all the time.  The guy is willing to take on an activity in which he has no real interest so that she won’t have to give up something about which she is passionate.  In return, he wants her to dance exclusively with him.  She is happy to dance with him, but she also wants to dance sometimes with other partners.

What is the missing information here?  Unless you are a natural, leading is not an easy skill to master.  It takes commitment and effort, and the reward for all this hard work is the light in your partner’s eyes when you delight her with a really fun move.  It is fun to light up another person, and it’s especially so when you are in love with that person.

But what about all the time it takes you to get to the level of being a good lead on the dance floor?  Is it fun for her to dance with you as a beginner?  Well, up to a point it is.  Depending on her personality, it may be exciting to see your progress and touching to see how hard you are working to share this special activity with her.  She may get a lot from supporting you in your goal, but at that stage it’s still what a friend of mine refers to as a “mercy dance”.  It can’t compare to the joy of dancing with partners who are already competent at leading.

Also, in the swing dance community, the custom is to dance with a variety of partners.  Even couples who are at the same skill levels don’t usually dance any more with each other than with the rest of the crowd.  A lot of the fun is the variety of dancing with a lot of different people.

 So is there a solution?

So what is the solution?  Well, every couple has to find their own way around their particular relationship issues, but I always suggest to my students that as a beginner you dance as much a possible and with as many different partners as possible.  When you are practicing at home, the advanced dancer can help her struggling partner out as much as she can without feeling resentful.  Again, everyone is different about how much patience they have with beginners.  But when you go social dancing, if you are the beginner take responsibility for that and practice with other beginners.  Dance once each with a variety of intermediate and advanced dancers, but don’t make a pest of yourself.  Be grateful for the mercy dances and be gracious.  And that goes for the help your girlfriend bestows upon you as well.

Also, remember that it’s not a game of how can I ever catch up to her.  It’s not about how many steps you know.  It’s about how well you lead them.  Once you’ve nailed the skill of leading, you become a fun partner.  You’ll want to increase your repertoire or you’ll get bored, but your partners will be happy with just a few steps if you lead them well.  Concentrate on learning to lead, take private lessons at the beginning to understand your strengths and weaknesses, and make use of your dance community to get in your hours of practice without burdening your partner.

If you are too insecure to do this, the problem is not with dancing, as Abby was quick to point out.  Use this new challenge as a challenge to work on the challenges of your relationship skills as well, and add couples counseling to your dance lessons.  Your personal relationship and your dance relationship are more connected that you think.  Work these issues out on the dance floor and your relationship will be more secure and more loving.  If you don’t, your girlfriend just might take Abby’s advice and dump you!

Dangerous sexuality - Mamita dance school article

Couple dances are sexy. This is inherent in the very nature of the relationship between a man and a woman. Anyone who has ever danced with a couple knows this. It doesn't matter if it was a slow dance at a school party or a professional class at a dance school. We feel it, and it draws us to each other.

Intuition does not deceive us exactly until the moment when we try to help our nature of sexuality. After all, we want to be even more spectacular and attractive. More often than not, we cannot admit it openly, as it is not accepted in our culture.

Nevertheless, socially acceptable leisure stimulates an inner sexuality that is obviously directed at members of the opposite sex.

We can more or less control our movements, but how much control can we have over our sexuality, and where can that lead us?

This is an obvious thesis, which, upon closer examination, becomes the cornerstone of the formation of a sense of one's gender. The fact is that sexuality in dance is determined not by the movements that we perform, but by an internal vector that is focused on members of the opposite sex. We look at the average salsateca and more often than not we see teammates rather than male and female couples. From the point of view of step technique, delivery, role in a couple, improvisation and other things, they are neutral sexless “people”. They hold hands, move according to predetermined patterns and do not cling to anything inside.

Sexuality implies first of all that a man is obviously a man and a woman is a woman. Their roles and presentation are fundamentally different in dance.

Trajectories of dance growth

First of all, we discuss the positioning of a man and a woman in a pair. The partner dances for everyone. She must be beautiful in dancing. How beautiful she is in dancing shows how successful the partner is. The partner flows and attracts the attention of everyone: the partner, the audience, the cosmos. She is the epitome of beauty.

A man is essentially functional. His task is to create the basis for the beauty of a partner, to reveal it from the best side. A man should always be in the shadow of a woman and not draw attention to himself with spectacular pas. His strength and masculinity is revealed through how feminine a partner becomes in his hands.

A self-admiring partner becomes uncomfortably feminine. A partner who is actively involved in the functioning of the couple instantly loses attractiveness.

Three hypostases of a dancer

Society puts many forms on our person. The number of social roles and behaviors confuses the question of how to behave in a given situation. In dancing, at least, we are represented as representatives of our gender (male or female), the subject of interaction (partner or partner) and the bearer of choreography (dancer or dancer).

The right balance of roles can make an equally prepared dancer from a technical point of view both a real star of the dance floor, and a freak or an outcast. This often becomes an occasion for various disputes between specialists and outside observers.

How to choose your path

Without a doubt, everyone chooses for himself. The main thing is that the choice is meaningful. Here we will look at the traditional approach that is the most effective within the partner dance community.

First of all, you need to be a representative of your gender. Surprisingly, this is what eludes the majority in the first place, unexpectedly shooting at the most inopportune moment in time. A man should always be a man, including on the dance floor.

Second, we are presented as subjects of interaction. This allows you to realize the main meaning of the contact within the couple. Otherwise, the pair dance loses its essence.

And lastly, we realize ourselves as dancers.

Couple dancing is sexual in nature. An attempt to deny this fact can become a dangerous background when communicating with the opposite sex. Whether you realize it or not.

Where is the danger?

Sexuality refers to the natural components of our being. We do not feel how the heart drives blood through our body. In the same way, our sexuality is always attuned to receive and broadcast. Society has made many rituals to avoid aggressive behavior. Especially valuable is the rule to physically stay away from each other.

But in partner dances we have direct contact with members of the opposite sex. The body reacts accordingly. The ability to accept someone else's sexuality has a psychotherapeutic effect. Denial or avoidance can lead to both increased internal conflicts and aggression from others due to inconsistent behavior.

Couple dances in the modern world have become the only place where you can legally and without serious consequences physically touch an unfamiliar member of the opposite sex. This non-obvious fact is the main driving motive for the popularity of pair dances around the world. In a modern distant society, a person is extremely lacking in human warmth.
