How to Get a Girl in the Club to Dance with You
Besides the fact that the dances cheer up and relieve stress, they also provide people with an additional opportunity to communicate and get to know each other better. And since this is one of the forms of interpersonal communication, one should know and observe the norms of dance etiquette. Let's be honest: the invitation to dance since the times of school prom is remembered as something painfully awkward, so we try to forget it as soon as possible and do it with pleasure. But going to hang out in the nightclub, you will face the task of inviting your partner or just a stranger to dance once again. We have found out from the dance floor regulars what rules you should follow and what to do if you are refused.
Many men being on the dance floor, face the problem of inviting a girl to dance. At this point, there is timidity and shyness that are uncommon in everyday life. Perhaps this is due to guys’ lack of confidence in their dance skills. Especially embarrassing the situation may be found by the men who came to the dance floor for the first time. Over time, you will remember with a smile your first steps towards pair dancing. Sure, inviting a girl to dance means to step over your fear of being rejected and remain yourself. Because the guy who has nothing to lose is the guy next to whom girls want to be.
Before the Club: How to Be Prepared to Get a Girl in the Club
When planning to go to a club, you need to remember that dance etiquette is of paramount importance on equal foot with preliminary preparation. The deal is, you can be the best on the dance floor, but the girl will hardly agree to dance with you if you don’t look very good. The same applies to the behavior in the club. Girls do not like when a man behaves provocatively or invites to dance when intoxicated or under drugs. Therefore, here are a few basic tips that will help you prepare for the evening at the club.
1. Look attractive
Before going to dance with a girl in the club, make yourself presentable. People don’t like those who don’t care about themselves. Take a shower, use deodorant, brush your teeth and refresh your breath. Unpleasant smell or untidy look puts a partner off, there must be respect for those you are going to dance with and get acquainted. But don’t overdo with the cologne. Most girls don’t like men to wear too much fragrance. Dress nicely. Your clothes also matter because it is an appearance that determines the first impression of a person. If you are very unsure of yourself or this is your first trip to the club, do not carp at yourself.
2. Practice dancing at home or visit lessons
How to dance with a girl in the club if you can’t dance? That’s the question. If you can’t dance at all, dance poorly or don’t know how to dance with a girl, we advise you to practice before this evening. If you danced before but have not practiced for a long time, you can repeat certain movements at home in front of the mirror. If dancing is not your strong side, the easiest option is video tutorials on the Internet, where you can choose an online lesson according to your level and dance style that you prefer. In some cases, when a person has never danced at all, it’s better to turn to a professional who will help you overcome uncertainty and teach you to dance.
3. Let your friends share their experience
The best option is a friend who knows how to dance and is a club buff. If you have one, then you are lucky. Just ask your friend for advice, and they will tell you how not to screw up the first night in the club. But remember that everything should not be perfect. In the end, you are not looking for a wife or soulmate, and nothing in your life will change if the girl refuses or if the evening is unsuccessful.
How to Start Dancing with a Girl at a Club: 10 Tips Guide
Dance etiquette, like everything else, has its own rules and standards of decency. Inviting a girl to dance plays no less important role than the process of dance itself. If a man makes not very good impression when asking for a dance, then it’s clear that a woman will not go dancing with him. In any case, the most important thing is not to overdo. So, here's a list of tips that will become indispensable to you when going to dance with a girl at the club.
1. Don’t drink too much
Perhaps, this is the first and basic rule. When you go to a club, you need to firmly decide for yourself whether you go to have fun and drink or to make friends and dance with someone. The worst option is to mix two kinds of pastime in the club because dancing on a drunken head will never end with anything good. Do not expect that the girl will gladly accept your invitation to dance if you are drunk and can barely keep up. Besides, when being blind drunk, it may happen that the security will show you the door, so know the measure.
2. Relax and enjoy the night
If the only thing on your mind is how to ask a girl to dance with you, then most likely, the evening will not please you and will not let you relax. Don’t focus on finding a partner for the dance but enjoy the time. Believe us, it is always noticeable when the guy is too concerned about the problem of meeting the girl, and he gives the impression of a loser. Be confident, have fun, and girls will notice you.
3. Don’t look like an obsessive freak
One more time: do not make it your goal to find a partner for a dance. If the whole evening you are pestering the girls asking them to dance, then it will look weird, at best. And if you are not lucky, others can take you for a maniac. Remember that not everyone who goes to the club likes to dance and go there only for it. Perhaps some have come here with friends or just want to relax. Try to find people who pursue the same goals as you, and do not bother others spending time the way they want.
4. Investigate the dancefloor
Before contemplating how to start dancing with a girl at a club, look at how others do it. The general atmosphere, the music played in the club, the overall mood will help you get a tone. Perhaps the music that the DJ turns on is not quite suitable for pair dance or you just don’t like it. It will be embarrassing to go to the dance floor and be the only couple dancing together. If you want to dance to a particular song, ask the DJ if they can play it.
5. Dance alone for a while, show your skills
If a girl wants to dance, she is just like you will be looking for a partner. She will watch the rest, evaluate their dancing skills. No one wants to dance with a man who is a complete hack at this. So, if you want to attract a potential partner, show her what you can do. Get on the dance floor, wait for the desired song and dance like you usually do. If a girl likes the way you move, maybe she will be the first to invite you to dance.
6. Always approach them from the front
If you are unsure how to ask a girl to dance with you and not get refuse, remember one rule: always approach the girl from the front. Asking for a dance, look in the face, and never approach a woman from the back suddenly contacting her with some requests. First, the sudden approach of an unfamiliar man can scare a girl off, she can hit you or ask friends or a boyfriend to deal with you. You don’t need troubles and extra bruises, so remember that you should come to the girl from the FRONT.
7. Introduce yourself and ask to dance nicely
So, you approach the girl intending to invite her to dance. If this is the beginning of the party, say hello. Do it simply, affably and with a smile, excessive seriousness or pathos (for example, falling on one knee with a hat in your hand) can frighten a lady. As an invitation to dance people are used to using the cliché, “Will you allow me to invite you for a dance?” The phrase "Let's dance?" can only be used when referring to a very close friend or wife. If a girl agrees to dance with you, thank her, extend your hand and take her to the dance floor. Do not start dancing right at the bar.
8. Don’t grab her and maintain the distance
Do not hug and touch the girl, especially before she accepted the invitation to dance. If a woman is wearing a dress with a deep neckline on the back, then the man should hold his hand to the side, without touching the bare back of the lady. During the dance, the man must take care to neither lift the dress of the partner with his hand, nor to put it aside, and nor to wrinkle. The partner must maintain a distance during and after the dance when not in a relationship with the girl. Dance is not an oath to live happily ever after.
9. Talk to her and offer to buy a drink
Talk to her during slow dancing. So, both of you will be a little more comfortable. Tell her that she looks good. This is very important because many girls spend a lot of time when preparing to go out. If she makes you a compliment, thank her. But don't expect her to compliment first. At the end of the dance, escort the girl to the place and offer to buy her a drink. Do not leave the girl on the dance floor immediately after the music stops.
10. Just be respectful
Remember that the girl you invite to dance is not your girlfriend or wife. If she doesn’t like something during the dance, or she doesn’t want to dance with you, do not resent or insist on anything. During the dance, don’t behave too cheekily and don’t talk to the girl on indecent topics. Respect the person who agreed to spend time with you.
Red Flags You Need to Consider Before Dancing with a Girl
However, there are certain situations when it is necessary to refrain from inviting a girl to dance due to some reasons. Even if you like a girl or you want to dance desperately. Here are the cases when you should not invite a girl to dance.
1. She is with her boyfriend. According to etiquette, if a man wants to invite a woman who came to a party with her boyfriend to the dance, he must ask for his consent firstly. If the man of the girl doesn’t object, one should ask a girl’s consent. But if we take into account the time we live in, it’s better not to approach the girl who came to the party accompanied by a guy. Otherwise, you may leave the club with bruises.
2. She is deadly drunk. Are any additional explanations needed here? If a girl is barely on her feet, do not invite her to dance. She is not able to dance. In this case, it is better to ask if the girl needs help.
3. She has already said no. If a woman responds negatively to your invitation, you shouldn’t show her that you are disappointed. Apologize and move away. You shouldn’t beg a woman. Remember, no means no. If she says you are not her type and says it seriously, back off! Nothing annoys a girl more than a guy who doesn’t leave her alone. This is not only rude but can make her hate you.
These are general tips on how to get a girl in a club to dance with you. But remember that there are no rules since each club has its own. Things that are acceptable for some people can be completely unacceptable for others. You can also ask your friends how to dance with a girl at a club. If they have more experience, they can share it with you. It is not so important if you do not know how to dance in a club or anywhere else when you can enjoy what is happening and lighten the mood of those around you.
The Couples' Guide to Clubbing
There's plenty in the way of unspoken rules and tacky etiquette when it comes to navigating nightclubs as a single person. Pick-up artists have filled sordid books with negging techniques and terminology like "dancefloor real estate," in order to provide guidance to hapless dweebs in their pursuit of the mythical lay. Yet there is a gaping hole in the literature. It's all very well recommending pick-up lines to Iron Man fans who've just discovered protein shakes, but what about the rest of us?
Let's posit that, somehow, you've managed to convince another person to enter into a consensual relationship with you. You've started watching House of Cards together, your parents ask how you both are, your laundry cycles have begun to overlap, like the confused merging of two orbiting cyclones. By and large this means domestic harmony—finally, making enough pasta slathered in pesto for two people is actually an appropriate portion—but there's a big wide world beyond the four walls of your hastily shared bedroom. At some point you'll be forced to take your new union into other, more challenging environments, and none provide more in the way of obstacles and moral question marks than the nightclub.
A successful night out with your other half* can have a profound impact; nothing is likely to bring you closer to the One You Love than half a pinger and a Tom Moulton edit. Yet "the club" can you also transplant you back to the rampant individualism of your single days. Look around you: the writhing bodies, the unfettered availability of booze and drugs, the dodgy signal and bleak basements. The ideals of monogamy and mutual-respect can soon lose their appeal. You've had a few pints and a bump of some cheap drugs and nobody gets to tell you what to do, do they? Well, while this approach might make you a free-wheeling, inconsiderate legend for a night, you will also likely wake up the morning after with stinging memories of a shouting match in the cloakroom queue and a loveless night bus home. So, below are just a few golden rules and cardinal sins to consider when you next decide to get the cans in with your dearly beloved.
*A housekeeping note: writing this article has made me realise how totally fucking impossible it is to write about people in relationships in a gender-neutral way, that doesn't involve words and phrases like "partner," "other-half" and "significant other." So please excuse my gradual transfiguration into a tabloid agony aunt/sex therapist.

1. DON'T FUCK OFF WITH YOUR MATES ALL NIGHT LONG
A big, steamy, noisy night out can be a great way to introduce your new life partner to your friends, but: don't be dick. There is no contempt greater than the scorn you'll earn if you leave your new love to fend for themselves in a room full of people they don't know. Don't swan into pre-drinks like Michael Corleone, disappearing into the kitchen with your core squad, your girlfriend/boyfriend catching a final glimpse of your face as the door closes, leaving them perched awkwardly on the arm of a sofa nodding along to whatever music is playing, while 15 people they don't know talk around them.
2. EMPLOY A COORDINATED INTOXICATION STRATEGY
AKA: drop at the same time.
If you're in a bigger group this doesn't matter as much, but if you want to enjoy a night out just the two of you, it's worth trying to stay on a fairly even footing when it comes to general waviness. Communicate throughout the night about how you're feeling and when you're thinking of dropping again. Synchronicity is key. Your relationship will not be enhanced by one of you droning on about the "elemental power" of smoke machines, while the other silently contemplates how much their feet hurt.
3. STOP ACTING LIKE A PERSONAL BODYGUARD
Big question here: what do you do if another person—a stranger—is trying it on with your beloved? You can see them, they are right there, teaching your boyfriend how to dab by holding his bicep, asking your girlfriend if she's Greek, cos, "you look Greek… my flatmate is Greek". The impulse is there—outrage mingled with Red Stripe as dental anaesthetic and 2% cocaine courses through your body. You don't want a fight, but come on, be honest, you do a little bit don't you? Part of you would like nothing more than to place a flat palm against their chest and push them aside with the calm authority of a Footballer's Wives bit-part.
Before you go storming in all "leave it out mate," take a breath. The likelihood is that your special friend is more than capable of dealing with a bit of unwanted attention. If they want someone to leave them alone, let them deal with it themselves. Stomping over ready to yank somebody's hair out is only going to make the entire situation worse, and make you look like a possessive child. The line between chivalry and looking like Big Tony, Simon Cowell's old bouncer on the X Factor, is a thin one.
Similarly, if you're the person being flirted with, make it obvious enough that you're not about to elope with this entire hen do. It's nice to be nice.

4. BEWARE GRAND DECLARATIONS
I realise that right now—right now as your heart pounds with lysergic exuberance and your scalp feels like a peeling orange—telling your partner of two months you want to raise children with them feels really right. But just on the off chance it's the drugs, maybe save that chat for the day after. That way you can both enjoy the latest episode of Better Call Saul in really, really uncomfortable silence!
5. WHEN IT'S OVER, IT'S OVER
This one is tough, but important. If you're partying with your partner and one of you is flagging, you've sort of got to call it a night. To be clear, we're talking about properly flagging here. If you're having a sick night and they start tapping you on the shoulder because they are "bored", then you're perfectly within your rights to force them to stay out for another hour. An hour max but a whole hour nonetheless. However, if they are done in—I'm talking droopy-eyed, nearly falling forward before they jolt awake at the last moment flagging—then do the right thing and make a swift exit. "Get a gram in for me, just going to put the missus in a taxi," is not a good look on anyone. Don't forget, existential loneliness is the soup du jour of any after-party, so you probably won't fit in anyway.
6. PDA POLICY
You'd maybe expect me to be a snarky dick here and make some comment about how "nobody cares, so keep your hands to yourself," but actually, controversially, public displays of affection in nightclubs are a good thing. These are, after all, sites of togetherness, aren't they? Isn't the sight of two people who like each-other enough to hold hands and smile for five hours is actually quite…nice? That said, after a few hours in a club, you're probably struggling to keep your jaw still when your mouth is closed, so any attempt at a sensual make-out session is likely to resemble an emperor penguin regurgitating mackerel into the gullet of his chick—which isn't as sexy as I've inadvertently made it sound.
7. BRING CHEWING GUM
Before you slide into the Uber make sure you've got the following: keys, phone, wallet, drugs, and a massive box of Wrigleys Extra. One of those pots that travelling salesmen have on their dashboard. Good for grinding teeth and not tasting like a pub-garden plant pot.

8. HAVING SEX IN THE CLUB
Look, I'm in no position of authority on this one. I'd sooner eat a car tyre than have naked sexual intercourse in front of other people, but hey! This is light-hearted online content! Leave my systemic insecurities out of it! Obviously, if you are at a sex party in deepest Berlin, then lube up and go bananas.** However if it's not that sort of club—Pryzm in Ipswich, say—then please don't have sex on the dancefloor. You will probably end up arrested, or worse, in the Tab.
**Yes, by the why, the venn diagram of "people who go to sex parties" and "people who say 'lube up and go bananas'" is two completely detached circles. Correct.
9. GOING TO BED
You've made it back to the comfort of your bedroom. Time to put some Prefab Sprout on and crawl under the sheets, pulling fresh, floating cotton over prickled skin. You'll probably try and have sex, before realising the chemical flush gently slowing in your veins has rendered your libido as potent as a Fruit Shoot. Don't give yourself a hard time—you physically can't. Best to admit defeat and enjoy the transitory state between comfort and euphoria, as you sleep between inane chatter and blinking, shallow sleep.
That is presuming you've been on the pingers. If you've just been drinking expect to spend the night trying to cushion the heavy breathing of your significant other who fell straight to sleep and now sounds like a dying dog sneezing its lungs up through thin black nostrils. If you've spent the night doing coke then it's doubtful you're still together.
10. MANAGING THE COMEDOWN
Now, this is the real reason you signed up for a long-term relationship in the first place, right? Remember all those comedowns spent alone? Stemming the gnawing flutters of dread by watching Superbad, eating toast and downloading Tinder? At last you have somebody by your side to share in the clammy-palmed listlessness. Make sure you're well stocked—the usuals in the way of fruit juice, cigs and Doritos—and settle in for a rollicking day of naps, daytime TV and the rich, ripe, unquestionable stench of two bodies that have remained bed-bound for 20 hours.
Basically this is a taster day for what your decaying, twilight years will be like, as the pair of you embark on the final, and ultimate comedown: old age. If you can get through the Sunday with your relationship in tact, then congratulations; it must be love after all.
