    Is it ever a bad time to dance?

    Music might free your soul, but dancing frees your spirit. I probably embarrassed my family more than once by doing some random dance on the
    streets or in a mall, but there's no excuse not to bust loose in the comfort of your own home.
    But was I wrong to spin in the mall, or try to match my turns to somebody next to me on the ski hill.

    For my views on dancing I refer you to my official spokeband. Genesis.



    I can just about co-ordinate my fingers and that's it. Throw in some feet and it's a mess!

    To dance is to live. Or something like that.

    Men don't dance. Men sit, sweat and curse.

    Agreed! 100%

    Why do you think my only live playing was at my son's wedding, and will be at my upcoming daughter's wedding? 'Cause you don't have to dance, when you're on stage with a guitar!! And, if you jump around while playing, they can't make fun of your dance moves!

    I feel embarrassed even when headbanging, so I agree with James.

    Alcohol helps though, and I found myself several times trying to invent a waltz variation for 5/8 rhytm.
    Love for all human beings is like listening to any kind of music. You just don't care.

    Sidebar.....after 25 years in private practice, here is a tip I gleaned from listening to hundreds (thousands??) of very attractive, nubile female patients who were in therapy 'cause they were trying to: find, work out, improve, fix, get out of, relationships.

    Concept...women LOVE guys who dance...they find it super sexy. And, while we are staring at their various body parts...they are equating the man's ability to dance with his ability to perform sexually.

    Trust me on this....it's something that I learned....and was never able to use practically in real life. but you single guys who aren't afraid to show your moves...you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

    Ha, ha.. yes!

    I'm forever in 7/8 when everyone else is in 4/4!

    That's something i've heard a lot Doc. I think my inability to dance has more to do with feeling self-conscious than actual physical limitations. Could it be women pick up on the confidence rather than the ability?

    Few guys on this board can (or should) use that info. Got any tips for 39 year-old Mom's who see their youth fading at a rate no spinning, kick-boxing, or yoga class could possibly counter?
