I have been preparing for prom for the past couple of weeks. I got a date way out of my league and even cut my hair! Still, I forgot one important detail: DANCING. I can't dance at all. The only thing I can do is slow dance. I think I will look like a fool tonight. Any tips on how to reduce my embarrassment?

Just roll with it! Be funny, don't try to be something you're not. Noone is expecting you to be John Travolta out there, just go with the flow.

(I don't know any dancers other than John Travolta )

I can't do that. For the first time ever, my dad is proud of me. He gave me a box of condoms.

Seriously, dude, just make a joke out of it. Nobody else at your high school prom can dance either, believe it or not.
#10
keep it simple
If it's creative, true to your musical goal, and it sounds good, put it in the song.

1. Guitar, delay, verb, amp, and creativity.
2. Well-tuned acoustic piano and creativity.
3. A bottle of water.

It's all grinding...Stand there and move your hips with her. Then slow dance. Then repeat. I suck at dancing but it's pretty easy to follow if you have any sense of rhythm.

I jest. Just remember that pretty much every other guy there will be in the same boat as you. Just relax and have fun.

And use the condoms >_>

just stay cool, keep your head high and move your legs a bit, then the arms will follow

don't be nervous , (looking around in all directions etc .)

good luck
#16
keep movement to the time of the song. c'mon your a musician for gods sake.

(And don't get too handsy!)
#17
Show her the condoms and go straight to the action! Trust me, buddyboy.
#18
Well you don't actually dance in the classical sense....it's more of just grinding lol but that's still fun. Just keep a fun positive attitude and follow her hips. Go with the rhythm and you'll be fine.
#19
yeah seriously grinding is ****ing easy. thats all you need to know, but if you want to have more fun you can dance like a jackass like i do. most songs they will play you can really only grind to though. the lindy hop is also a great technique
#20
I thought all the kids were just grinding nowadays. if that happens tonight, just revert to your primal male instincts.
#22
shake and convulse on the dance floor, worked for alot of guys.

you're thibnking about this kinda late, why didn't factor that in before?

Oh and don't goof off or attempt to make fun of dancing. Everyone always avoids and is annoyed by those people. It draws the wrong kind of attention.

Also, if you're nervous or feel awkward, try going deeper into the crowd of people. It seems backwards, but you start to realize that no one's paying attention to you.
#24
Dance w/ someone else's date. It'll end well.

Just kidding, I've never had a date to prom

The Diglett never fails.
Get in a runners stance, one leg in front of the other, then move your hands in a stabbing motion toward the ground, while simultaneously making a t-bag motion.

Not much of an achievement right there.

But seriously, I wouldn't worry about it. If you just move around and act like your having fun, people will think you're cool. All anyone does is lift their arms into the air, flail them around and go, "Yeeeeeaaaahhh, boooooyyyy!". Don't think too hard about it, and just do what everyone else does.

EDIT: This is what I meant when I said "Do what everyone else does." Or you could just learn to dance like Donald O' Connor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW02c5UNGl0

What is it with proms that make certain people nervous? In my country is not too much of a big deal. We just go there and have a good time without having any worries
I do not want to have a signature anymore.

Nah, you gotta do this.

Begin again in the night, let's sway again tonight.
