So I Think I Can’t Dance

One of the many things I can’t do very well is dance.

I like music a lot, and I can even pretend to sing a little… but dancing is something that has eluded me. The biggest problem is that I’m just not sure what to do with my arms. Do I wave them in the air like I just don’t care? Do I snap? Do I pretend they’re not there and just let them sway and swing? There’s no good solution for that.

Slow dancing, well, that’s different. But dancing to anything faster than that is something I tend to avoid. I do this by just not putting myself in many situations where dancing is happening regularly or could instantly break out (ie, dance club, hospital, car wash).

Sad? Maybe a little. But I’d rather just enjoy the music such as it is, at a bar, finishing half a bottle of beer.

I’m with you on that, as anyone who has seen me attempt to dance can attest to.

I cannot partner dance, if it makes you feel better. 20+ years of dance lessons and I cannot swing dance or anything like that.

What is this then?
