I could never dance for more than ten seconds... and I've no sense of rhythm. I took guitar lessons and my teacher had such a pained expression that I gave up after half a dozen lessons. I just would get lost in the spaces...

I danced, but people laughed. I provided comic relief.

I can only dance to rock n roll. I can't dance to anything else.

I can't dance at all and wish I could. Sometimes I attempt to at home and I've also provided comic relief. Every once in a while I do smoother move but it's pretty bad. I have no rhythm.

I think this is pretty amazing. I'm not saying I'd want to dance like this exactly but I wish I could dance closer to this and maybe how some famous pop stars dance like. It just looks fun to me.

I can't dance; I lose track of where my limbs are.

Not really, but what people do at nightclubs isn't dancing.

I love to dance, though I'm really glad I do the type of dancing where they tell you what comes next (instead of having to be creative about it).

I like to dance but i look really drunk doing it. Im worried of what may happen if i do dance with drinks. That said i do dance by myself or atleast some space if im dancing with someone.

See my sig. :P I actually have perfect rhythm, it's just that my brain can't translate that to movements. I can do simple stuff, but that's pretty much it. I've actually gotten to the point where I don't care about it at all, and if someone wants me to dance I will. As long as I'm having fun, I can deal with looking a little awkward.

Can I dance? Me? 8O
Good God no and I wouldn't want to try either. I'm unlikely to be even near a place where that happened.
