who reckons they are a great, average or awful dancer?
i look like i'm in the electric chair, but that'd explain alot.
sober? I have. It's impossible. Absolutely impossible.
And no, I can't dance for toffee. But everyone knows blokes don't dance, but stand around the dancefloor drinking a pint in a squidgy glass nodding their heads.
0-3 drinks = rhythmic but creatively stifled
4-10 (this isn't pints, no way can i touch double figures) = hip shaking, arm waving jive sensation
10+ = rowdy monster (especially if cigarettes and alcohol comes on, i hate myself sometimes)
luckily no clubs tend to play much decent music now, so there's little call for me to hand out the blindfolds.
but my inhibitions are shed, allowing me to present the monstrosity that is me dancing.
it's really horrible when i wake up and realise i've been dancing all night and how many more people in this city have come to the conclusion that i have some sort of condition that makes me move like that...
dancing shoes with you Friday!
so i'll be dancing...
You can observe my terrible dancing then - and me probably being thrown/twirled around the dancefloor by marilyninthesky!
you require good music to dance to?
I am truly awful but will literally dance to anything. (alcohol permitting)
Who needs good music to dance to?! If it's vagualy loud, and I've had a few too many ciders, then I'm on that floor.
Sober dancing though? Ha! Who does that? I look like a blind man trying to swat a wasp when I'm drunk dancing.
is also known as 'insanity'.
I am really awful! I either dance like an absolute whore, or I barely move (and then when I do its out of time!)
I never give up trying to dance though! I just increase the alcohol intake
I'm like Christopher Walken or something.
should come to one of the Mod clubs and see the dancers! It's great!
and will do it really badly. I like it though.
i like bouncing round like a maniac on catnip. it's all about not giving a shit what you look like/not taking yourself too seriously, lots of enthusiasm and having a big shit eating smile on your face.
You can get away with a lot as long as you do it with a big shit eating smile on your face.
I tend to leap around very enthusiastically. I will dance to almost anything. Sometimes I've been to clubs sober, my dancing is very similar, but with slightly better balance.
and play with you and your friends? sounds like my kind of dancing....
rubbish men who won't dance and hangs around the side of the dancefloor looking sheepish. Unless it's music that I actually really love, at which point my body starts to shake and twitch uncontrollably. I am told this looks a little like I am having some kind of fit.
but since my knee injury, I sometimes get a horrible crunchy feeling that stops me in my tracks, fearing another 8 hour wait in casualty, another fortnight in a plaster cast, another month in a leg brace. And then the physiotherapy begins, which I won't really do, 'cos I'm lazy, and so the cycle begins all over again.
and i dance to everything and anything. people actually start dance-offs with me. i dance like a bit of a 'special' person but there's so much enthusiasm and energy as to prove irrisistable.
me = lord of the dance.
you don't enjoy it, but you enjoy petending to enjoy it?
i never got the irony thing.
I like to pretend it's serious and stuff when i am infact doing cricket umpire signals.
to cover up the fact i can't dance "seriously"
i'll have to try that.
Are the core components of my repetoir
but its been curtailed recently by my broken arse.
As soon as that's fixed I'll be showing people how its done on all bristolian dancefloors.
